Summer is here and holiday season is beginning. Following the Christmas period, this is the next point when individuals start to consider their options and what the market looks like. It could be the fear of returning to work, or just the break, making individuals realise that they want more from their roles. In the upcoming months, people are facing annual reviews which will also affect their decisions and establish their value within their firm.

Expat tax has seen a huge drive with a big demand for dual handlers and those dealing with HNWI for all levels up to senior manager.

Reward seems to be moving far and wide. With headquarters within London, numerous firms are expanding out towards Bristol and Leeds. Obviously the biggest news has been the movement of the Big4 firms establishing a legal branch; however accountancy firms have always been very keen on lawyers with a focus on tax, which we have experienced especially within reward and share schemes.
Restructuring & insolvency has seen a surge of recruitment in the last 6 months, not only are people looking at senior manager to partner grade, but notably boutique firms are starting to recruit at manager grade and below. We expect for there to be an influx of recruitment and a true sign of the market to come in Q3.
