Recruitment is a booming part of the services which often yields extremely high profits for business owners during both periods of economic recovery and growth. As growth returns to the UK, companies will look to bolster their permanent staff numbers, increasingly more reliant on candidates submitted by independent recruitment agencies. The recruitment sector is fast becoming a key focus area for those looking to take advantage of the relatively low current valuations and invest with the future in mind.
Over the years there has been an increase in the willingness of businesses to use recruitment agencies as a direct source of professional talent and HR departments now work regularly with external recruiters and headhunter agencies in hopes of sourcing the best candidates. This creates a very lucrative environment for many recruitment businesses who effectively act as ‘sales brokerages’ between prospective employee and their intended client.
