THE JOBS market is back to “business as usual” as employers shrug off the effects of the Brexit vote, an expert has said.

With August a typically quiet month for jobs, recruitment is expected to pick up to normal levels in September, as the reality of Brexit is pushed back until at least 2019, according to HR consultant Brian Warren.

He was speaking ahead the return of The Argus Jobs Fair - the second this year after a resoundingly successful event in June.

Brian Warren said: “Everyone has been waiting to see what will happen, but no-one has seen any changes yet.

“As soon it became obvious that nothing was going to happen for a while it was business as usual. People are putting it out of their minds.

“The jobs market was very healthy particular in Brighton and Hove before Brexit. Now everyone has realised nothing will change for at least another three years.

“I expect there will be a big push in September especially in the digital sector with lots of companies hiring and expanding.”

The Argus Jobs Fair is expected to will welcome more than 1,000 people on October 6 to The Clarendon Centre, Brighton, between 1pm and 7pm.

The fair provides a link between training organisations, employers and employees – while giving companies in the region a platform for reaching out to the public.

Visitors will get the chance to meet prospective employers face to face and apply for jobs in person, enhance their profile and increase their chances of being hired, better career opportunities, with a variety of sectors represented.

For exhibitors the fair offers the chance for to meet prospective employees face to face before the interview stage.
