UK – PERMANENT PLACEMENTS REACH SIX-MONTH HIGH - 08/02/2018

 

Permanent staff placements in January expanded at its steepest since July 2017, according to the latest Report on Jobs published by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation and IHS Markit.

And one century later, whilst women have transcended many societal norms, rightly earning their place in the workplace, discrepancies still remain; in leadership, pay and equality.

Whilst recruiters are aware of hiring without bias,… Read more
