Six months after the implementation of AWR, it is clear that the demand for temporary and contract staff has remained strong in the UK and looks set to grow over the coming year, noted Tom Hadley, director of policy and professional services at the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC).
Since October 1st, recruitment agencies across the country have got to grips with the new requirements and have ensured that flexible working options continue to provide a crucial outlet for workers and businesses, he added.
"Looking ahead, the benefits that flexible staffing arrangements provide will continue to outweigh the uncertainty that has been created in some sectors. At the same time, we will continue to call on government to review and streamline some of the bureaucracy for agencies and their clients," he added.
Instead of a being a final call for agency work, the AWR has been a "rallying call" for the UK recruitment industry to demonstrate its resilience and ability to make things work on the ground, Mr Hadley explained.
Recently, Kevin Green, chief executive of the REC, agreed that the impact of AWR on the UK jobs market has not been as significant as feared and there is ongoing evidence that this is unlikely to change.
