With skills availability across the Creative, Marketing & PR sectors remaining tight and with demand for talent increasing, one of the primary challenges facing businesses as we move in to 2017 will be attracting and retaining the best people.

Many of our clients used the last quarter as an opportunity to consider the skills and competences of their teams, with a focus on the additional skills that they will need to supplement their teams with to fuel business ambitions for the year ahead.

Their core consideration being what are the business projections for 2017 and what are the talent requirements to make these ambitions a reality?
