Welcome to the first edition of the Deutschland Digest.
I joined Frazer Jones Germany at the start of 2017 to develop and grow our Financial & Professional Services (FSPS) HR offering. To deliver the maximum amount of value to you, I will be compiling this quarterly report highlighting key market trends that are likely to impact this space in and around Germany. The main focus will be on market factors, regulatory changes, candidate profiles & perceptions and role volumes over the past quarter, alongside a forecast for the following quarter.
Frazer Jones is part of the wider SR Group, which also comprises of Taylor Root (Legal & Compliance), Carter Murray (Marketing & Commercial), Brewer Morris (Tax & Treasury) and our newly launched German temping business SRG Projects. All data utilised within this update has been derived from across our global business to provide a truly holistic market outlook.
Rather than segregate the information based upon industry, I will outline which factors impact upon all key industries within FSPS, stating where necessary singular factors that will only impact specific business lines. Whilst I have spoken with a wide array of companies, I will keep all data general and will not discuss specific firms. If there is anything that you would like to contribute or discuss further, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
