City Views | Is London’s labour market improving?

I’ve seen a lot more activity in the City and with corporates. I mainly deal with M&A. It’s probably due to more confidence, and in my case with the corporates not wanting to be so reliant on banks.

I think it’s improving in London as we expand the telecom and communication sector, with broadband, fiber optic and more lines being laid down. The IT and communications sector is growing.

I know a lot of roles in financial services are going overseas for cost-cutting reasons. Over the last few years 100,000 jobs have left London. It makes the recruitment consultant’s job very difficult.
