Starting in 2008 ecm have produced an annual Report based on an in-depth survey of the salaries and benefits offered by their clients. The last full Report was published in January 2016 and provided a guide to job offers competitive at that time. During 2016 ecm are offering quarterly updates on the state of the high-tech recruitment market.

The Q3 2016 Update

Where to start?! The last few weeks have seen the biggest political upheavals of the last 30 years, and the economic impact is likely to reverberate over many years to come. No one really knows what will be the consequences of Brexit, and its effects on high-tech companies in the UK.

What we can say is that, despite the gloom merchants - and at times it was difficult not to join their ranks - here at ecm we have so far seen 'business as usual' with only the occasional company (and jobseeker) saying explicitly that Brexit has affected their immediate plans. In fact in the last week we have been contacted by a number of new clients seeking to hire, and have recorded a record number of new vacancies.

We live in interesting times. Let's hope for the best.

Please contact ecm for details of the Report and a copy of the full Update. And do watch out for ecm’s next Quarterly Update on the state of the high-tech recruitment market, due in Q4 2016.
