Wednesday, 16 January 2019

Neil Carberry, Recruitment & Employment Confederation chief executive, responding to the defeat of the government’s EU withdrawal deal said: 


“Crashing out of the EU without a deal would do real damage to British businesses and the millions of families they support. A no deal Brexit is not a tolerable way forward.

“Businesses critically need certainty on Brexit plans. Political paralysis is already impacting firms – slowing down investment decisions and damaging our reputation globally.

“Recruiters have been clear that Britain needs a deal with a clear transition period and a sensible approach to EU immigration, which will help to calm economic fears. Any Brexit 'plan B' must involve these two elements. Across the country, recruiters are already working with companies to help them find the people they need for their future workforce, taking into account the challenges Brexit will bring.”
