Our Senior Client Director, James Woods, shared his thoughts on recent Financial Planning Recruitment trends with Michael Klimes at Money Marketing yesterday.
Hiring freezes at larger firms when the pandemic struck back in March have been reversed over the past few months, leading to the significant increase in offers between the second and third quarters.
The number of placements and offers accepted from August to September are 120% up from that the start of the year in January and February, before the Covid-19 lockdown.
The uptick is partially driven by advisers who have left their firms due to what they see as unfair treatment during the pandemic.
