The election is now just a couple of weeks away; "Brexit" and particularly what that may mean for recruitment in many industries, including our own, still looms large.
With the potential for greater difficulty in recruiting overseas talent, we need to play the long game - investing more now in the UK education system to ensure our young people have the appropriate skills to survive in, and contribute to, the workplaces of the future.
Easier said than done for any government of whatever hue, with budgetary constraints, to balance competing priorities of equal importance but education must come pretty high on the list if we are to have ready access to a home grown pool of talent.
we have invested so much in technology that we need access to lots of tech-savvy people. Usually that means hiring young talent. But it’s also about hiring a diverse workforce, which represents not just the new markets where we are growing quickly but also the new skills that our businesses need to be successful in a digitally connected world
