As Chancellor Philip Hammond prepares to deliver his first Autumn Statement and restore some certainty to the UK economy, we are calling on recruiters across the country to have their say on what needs to be done to support their industry.

The recruitment sector lies at the heart of British business and is pivotal to our economic success.

But, have recent HMRC changes made it too difficult to deliver the skills businesses need? Has Brexit damaged confidence? Will the changes to public sector rules force you to rethink your strategy?

This survey from Global Recruiter and national accountancy services provider Danbro will deliver a full health check for the recruitment sector and then provide the information needed to challenge Government on the main issues it faces.

Please take the time to complete this short survey which will address the biggest challenges the recruitment sector faces and, crucially, help you to understand how others are adapting to the shifting marketplace.

The findings will appear in the December issue of Global Recruiter.
