Justin Zatouroff, head of business services sector at KPMG UK comments on the CIPS/IHS Markit PMI figures for the services sector. He said:
“Today’s data suggests that the combination of economic uncertainty and the ongoing Brexit rollercoaster is dragging the sector back and having an adverse effect on job creation and investment. It’s interesting to note that the impact on job creation was as a result of some difficulty in recruiting suitable skilled staff. This trend needs to be watched closely as the ramification of reduced inward migration may result in the lack of available workers post-Brexit.”
