- Brite Recruitment have shown a great level of commitment (and perseverance!!) whilst working on some very challenging vacancies over the last 18 month...
It’s been 4 weeks since the UK voted to leave the European Union. It was a vote that divided the nation, causing 1 in 8 people to fall out with family and friends. One of the main arguments within the debate was the effect it could have on employment. With Pro- EU forces suggesting almost millions of jobs could be lost by leaving the EU and ‘Brexiters’ arguing that a ‘Brexit’ vote would lead to an employment boom.
No-one really knows what the future holds for employment in the UK, however the article below, which was published by ‘The Huffington Post’ http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/helen-barnard/the-jobs-market-is-boomin_b_11105108.html , looks at the current employment figures across the UK and what with a new government, what the future could hold for employment post 'Brexit'.
“The media has been dominated by doom and gloom in recent weeks. Analysis of the reasons behind the Brexit vote point towards a deep seated sense of exclusion and dissatisfaction in many parts of the country. However, employment growth has been a real success story in recent years.
This is, of course, to be hugely welcomed. But why isn’t the outlook more optimistic? Our research points to four reasons.
We now have a new Prime Minister, a new Cabinet and a chance to map a positive path towards greater economic security and an orderly Brexit. When Theresa May set out her stall she promised to fight the ‘burning injustice’ of poverty, discrimination and lack of opportunity.
It needs better skills, affordable childcare and housing and better pay and security for those who are struggling to get by for us all to feel better off. Otherwise, the post-Brexit gloom may struggle to clear, despite the rise and rise in employment.”
