After a very successful session in October, WIBF is delighted to welcome back two experts from Change Recruitment for a second session to talk about the current employment environment and answer your questions.

The COVID-19 pandemic has introduced uncertainty into all aspects of our lives, and the recruitment market is no exception. With announcements of mass redundancies, the winding-up of the furlough scheme and the announcement of new job protection plans, alongside the tightening of social and business restrictions, many in the finance industry are worried about their current or future job prospects.

Mark and Scott from Change Recruitment will open the session by sharing some of their insights on the current recruitment environment from the industry, employers and employees. The majority of the session will then be an open forum for attendees to ask Mark and Scott any questions on matters such as risk of redundancy; reapplying for your own role; concerns about promotion; or any other recruitment issues.

Attendees are encouraged to submit questions in advance for discussion during the session (all questions will be discussed on an anonymous basis). Please submit your questions to
