Insurance Sector Report – October 2020

Insurance Sector Report – October 2020

As the UK economy restarts after lockdown, there are positive signs within the Insurance sector. So far this year, activity in London has dropped proportionately to last year, in that in 2019 39% of the vacancies were in the Capital, compared to 37% this year. The big question coming is what the impact of being outside the single market will be for the sector?

The virus’ spread and consequent restrictions contributed to a big drop in Q2 2020 vacancies in the accountancy, financial services, and commerce and industry sectors right after the UK’s first lockdown was announced at the end of March 2020. Figures from Vacancysoft indicate that vacancies have slowly picked up in Q3 but are struggling to recover to pre-pandemic heights.

As the world grapples with the COVID-19 crisis, the pharmaceuticals sector has been busier than most as the sector desperately tries to develop a vaccine. Hence when analyzing the 2020 activity so far we see that monthly vacancy activity this year so far is down 32% in the UK, which is a significantly greater dip than any of the EU27 countries.

At the Midlands, even before Covid-19 there were already pressures on the regional economy caused by the UK’s departurefrom the EU, where consequently vacancies have dropped by 46% year-on-year. It is also worth to mention the West Midlands is faring better than the East with vacancy levels falling by 41% and 51% respectively.

Legal Report with Taylor Root June 2020 – TMT in review

Legal Report with Taylor Root June 2020 – TMT in review

– When analysing activity within Law Firms, overall vacancies in the first half of the year are down 41% on 2019, where for TMT Lawyers specifically the drop is even more stark (down 48%.)
– In contrast to Private Practice, in-house legal vacancies have held steady across the Technology industry, as businesses continue to hire legal counsel unabated. In fact, as things stand, in 2020 we anticipate there being more legal vacancies in the technology industry than in 2019.
– In fact when comparing this year to last, we see that despite COVID-19, there have been 27% more in-house legal vacancies across TMT businesses in London. Regionally there has also been an increase, with vacancies up 16%

– When comparing the monthly average of digital vacancies in 2020 so far we can see activity is up 11% on last year
– An increasing proportion of the marketing vacancies in pharmaceuticals companies are for digital roles. This trend has been a gradual one over time, but for example, when we compare Q1 2018, we see 9.4% of marketing roles were digital, whereas by Q2 2020, this had risen to 13.7%.
– We see a surge in activity in Poland specifically in 2020 with three times as many vacancies this year, compared to last.
