UK hiring trends in 2019

The outcome of Brexit will be the key determinant of hiring market conditions in 2019, especially for the financial services sector. However, despite Brexit, there will be pockets of intense hiring activity within financial services driven by demand for skills such as compliance, risk and audit. We will also continue to see traditional finance functions hiring at all levels as general business growth is likely to continue.

Technology aligned companies and venture-capital-backed start-ups show no sign of slowing down, and the rate at which they continue to attract investors will be a big pull for candidates who are looking to future-proof their careers. Hiring in the technology sector will remain high in areas such as Manchester, Leeds and Birmingham with further expansion expected in these regions.

We advise businesses facing candidate shortages to be flexible and consider hiring professionals with transferable skills. Companies should consider taking on candidates who are ambitious and fast learners, even if they are not an exact fit for the job description, in order to support areas of growth within the business.

Our recommendation to candidates who are looking for a new role would be to embrace digitalisation and innovation to ensure they remain current and relevant to changing working practices.

In-demand professions or specialist roles will continue to command premiums, but general salary inflation will be subject to, and defined by, the outcome of Brexit and other variable macroeconomic conditions.
