Risks facing the recruitment sector in 2019
Whilst the recruitment industry is a good barometer for the economy in general, and is affected by Brexit and GDPR, like all other sectors, recruiters will face some very specific risks in the coming year. IR35 was a major concern throughout 2018, and we now know that the changes will be introduced to the private sector in April 2020. We have already seen recruiters looking at workarounds, as pressure from hirers intensifies throughout 2019.
Peter Stoll, Director at Jelf, and head of the recruitment insurance division, looks at the top 5 risks affecting the recruitment sector over the next 12 months, and what steps might be taken to help mitigate those risks.
