Employers optimistic about post-Brexit hiring

British employers are optimistic about their ability to recruit qualified employees after Britain leaves the EU, despite currently relying on workers from the continent to fill around 30% of available jobs. The poll, carried out by skills organisation City and Guilds, surveyed 500 senior decision-makers from large companies across a range of UK economic sectors, including construction, education and the financial industry. It found that 26% felt Brexit would not have any impact on their ability to find and hire competent employees, while more than two-fifths (42%) went further and said they expected it to have a positive effect on recruitment.
