Being a Brexit advocate it was disappointing to hear that a new study shows 43.2% of UK recruiters believe Brexit will cause further skill shortages and reduce access to viable candidates.
On the flip-side, this should further augment the value in unearthing passive talent through executive search methods and in turn erode perception that this form of recruitment is a cost rather than an investment.

We’re a nation divided and whether you stand with Cameron and the third of major UK businesses bargaining for a united EU, or, with Boris and the Eurosceptics, one thing we can agree on is uncertainty over the Brexit is costly to recruitment. In the same way that hiring dried up in the run-up to the General Election, the Referendum is stalling business growth, laying a freeze on headcount and dragging the pound through the gutter, having hit a seven-year low against the dollar. With many worried about the mobility of labour after a split, a new study by CV-Library shows 43.2% of UK recruiters believe a Brexit will cause further skill shortages and reduce access to viable candidates.
