TALiNT International supports 2019 Deal Room event
Enjoying yet another glorious British summer evening, the annual 2019 Deal Room was held with recruitment company owners networking at Gateley Legal’s London offices overlooking St Paul’s Cathedral.
The event attracted the largest number of guests to date with over 120 recruiters attending. The talk was of candidate shortages, the challenges of IR35 and potential implications for the private sector in the future, employment status in the wake of the gig economy, as well as variances in company valuations. Notwithstanding the continued uncertainties around Brexit, the underlying message from the hosts (Lloyds Bank, Gateley Legal, Optima Corporate Finance and Saffreys) was one of “business as usual” as the resilient recruitment sector continues to grow, with significant levels of recent M&A activity being seen in the sector.
A prize draw for a bottle of champagne raised £755, matched by a very generous anonymous donor in the room, to raise £1,510 from the attendees for MIND and Mental Health UK. This will be match funded by hosts Lloyds Bank, to raise an amazing £3,020 in total.
