David Connett, Partner at Connett & Unland GbR, told The Recycler: “The UK government has just initiated the Article 50 exit process, which will take two years to finalise, and we are already seeing international companies actively recruiting senior executives for the UK market. At the same time they are also looking at possible UK investments in buying into established UK businesses, or in launching new UK subsidiaries.”
According to Connett, there is strong interest in recruiting senior sales positions ahead of Brexit at the moment. One company is looking to recruit a VP For UK sales, and the latest recruitment is for a UK business development manager. But it isn’t just recruiting that is active, as companies start planning a post-Brexit strategy with the EU, and Asian-based investors are now actively looking to invest in the UK market, either through an acquisition or establishing a UK base this year.
