Mark McFall has 25 years’ experience within the recruitment industry primarily in senior leadership roles within both Nasdaq and AIM listed organisations covering a variety of sectors and disciplines. Mark joined Change in 2012 as Managing Director implementing a strategy to improve the business mix, improve productivity and profitability. Culminating in overseeing the successful sale of Change and subsequent integration into the new Taranata Group.

As a keen supporter to WIBF, Mark has been working with us on a programme in Q4 2020 to ‘Ask the experts’ – the current recruitment environment.

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.

These events have enabled our audience to get the best advice and guidance.

This event will be delivered via Zoom - please ensure you have registered with us in advance of the session to ensure you receive the joining instructions.
