Autumn Statement's Promise of RnD Investment Great News for Technical Recruiters




David Leyshon, our Chairman, comments: 

"Exciting announcements yesterday in the Autumn Statement: huge government investment in infrastructure and innovation initiatives can only be a positive. 

CBSbutler, who’ve been active ambassadors for STEM careers for many years, are thrilled by the government’s announcement that they are going to increase investment in science and technology research and development with an extra £2million per year by 2021. 

100% relief of business rates on digital infrastructure projects, particularly new Fibre programs, is a massive boost. CBSbutler are keen to support this opportunity for UK tech businesses with proven skills. 

At last, some real, tangible evidence that this government understands the STEM time bomb and is committed to solving the problem. 

This announcement is perfect news for technical recruiters, and a great fillip to kick off 2017."
