The latest Confederation of British Industry/Harvey Nash Employment Trends Survey indicates that contractors and other flexible workers have enabled ‘UK plc’ to emerge from the economic downturn better prepared compared to other economies around the world, allowing private sector clients to start planning for growth. 

Commenting on the findings, Harvey Nash CEO Albert Ellis said, “Comparing the UK’s labour market with others around the world, it is its flexibility and agility that has protected the country from the very worst possible outcomes during the recession. The flexible workforce has also provided a robust platform for an increase in demand for recruitment.”
