Statement from UK's leading independent job board on delay in lifting of restrictions

In response to the announcement from the Government, that the lifting of lockdown restrictions will be delayed, Lee Biggins, CEO and Founder of the UK's leading independent job board said:

"Over the last few months our job market data has consistently shown that businesses have been leading the pandemic recovery with boldness and optimism.  Whilst a delay in the lifting of restrictions may be necessary, it's imperative that the Government and the general public continue to support the UK job market. The impact of an additional 4 weeks under restrictions cannot be underestimated. After 15 months of closures and limitations, this will push some businesses to breaking point."
