IC Recruitment Market Update – June 2024

27 June 2024

Welcome to a new series of regular market updates from myself and the team at Comma Partners.


So, how’s the market? It’s a question all three of us are asked multiple times every day, so we’ve summarised our thoughts here as we end H1, 2024. It’s a five-minute summary and we’ll vary between audio and video updates in future editions.


Please have a listen and then let us know your feedback, as well as any questions or topics you’d like us to cover next month.


For anyone new to our network, the three of us (myself, Virginia and Louise) are all former in-house IC professionals, now specialising in employee (and change) comms, engagement and experience. We cover mid and senior level roles across permanent, FTC and day rate interim, UK wide. You can get to know us better here.


Thank you to all our clients, candidates, friends, speakers, partners and wider network for the continued support so far this year. A special thank you to everyone who’s recommended us too.To keep up to date, be sure to follow us on LinkedIn.

Director and Lead Consultant
