Looking back: the state of the digital recruitment industry at the end of 2020

By :Be Kaler Pilgrim

2020 really was a year to consign without regret to the history books. Throughout last year, we tracked the state of our industry as it rode the Covid waves of lockdowns and redundancies.

It’s fair to say that our barometer from the summer of 2020 indicated a sense of uncertainty about an impending second wave which has unfortunately since been realised and continues to surge relentlessly. That’s not to say however that it’s all been doom and gloom in recruitment since the summer.

From our position now, we’re able to look back at the final months of 2020 and highlight some positive hiring trends, providing, we hope, some much-needed optimism for 2021.
