Recruitment & Staffing
Over many years, the partners at Connect Corporate Finance have garnered significant knowledge of the Human capital industry in the UK, Central Europe, America and Australia. We offer company owners a platform to pursue cross border transactions, whether it be a company disposal or a targeted acquisition.
The sector consistently experiences high transaction volumes, as a continually expanding industry with low barriers to entry. We envisage no suppression in appetite for M&A deals in 2020/21, with the recent announcement regarding the extension of IR35 in the UK.
The rationale for acquisitions remains, with technology increasing company valuations and the perception of attractiveness, we have seen recruitment platforms and software agencies, become the most prominent acquisition topic ahead of generalist agency company sales, in 2019.
