It’s been an intriguing 2021 and what’s next we ask?
We’ve had the pandemic, unrest in the streets, earthquakes…. Please, just don’t mention the plague or pestilence!!!
With that as a starting point, it seems remarkable that we have seen such a strong first 9 months of 2021!
The market has shown strong demand and created a clear shortage of available talent, with this being most pronounced between March and September.
It’s been a really interesting time seeing how the market has traveled through this 2021 lock-down and how studios and staff have coped with the transition to working remotely for such an extended period. Overall, the sentiment and activity has remained very positive during the outbreak of the Delta strain in Sydney and companies have remained confident about their workflow and hiring intentions…
So what’s happening elsewhere? Not something we maybe think as much about when in full lockdown and our focus might seem more locally driven. Our wonderful affiliate in the UK, Oliver Tidmarsh from JaK Consulting filled us in on happenings in his neck of the woods and had this to say about their local market..
