Market Reports 2012

In our previous market report in July last year, we reported that the recruitment market appeared reassuringly normal. Outside of the public sector demand was spread across the various sectors of the economy and candidate shortages were as evident as at any time in the past.

We also reported that the economic environment far removed from normal. We observed that given even the most optimistic outlook, the sovereign debt issues within the Eurozone would need to be resolved. We perceived the biggest threat to the corporate governance recruitment market to be the uncertainty that the potential crisis was generating. Uncertainty intensified in the second half of 2011 as the Eurozone sovereign debt crisis escalated. It became clear that whilst companies were demonstrating the desire to recruit by registering vacancies and conducting interviews, they have become more reluctant to make offers of employment. To put this decline in some form of perspective in this report we are providing a benchmark. It demonstrates that the composite rate of placements for all the individual corporate governance markets in the final quarter of 2011, was 50% off the peak achieved during 2010.

2012 is likely to be a pivotal year for the corporate governance recruitment market where the need to recruit will be finely balanced against Eurozone inspired uncertainties.

As before, we have produced a Corporate Governance Market Report covering the entire market and specialist reports for each component market.

Barclay Simpson’s Market Report 2012 reviews the last 6 months in detail and assesses the prospects for 2012. There are six specialist reports:
