No charity ever raised money by saying things are getting better. No journalist ever got the front page writing a story about how disaster was now less likely. Pressure groups and their customers in the media search even the most cheerful statistics for glimmers of doom.
So what’s there to be optimistic about?
Well for one thing, believe it or not, the recruitment industry is on the up and up!
With a record breaking turnover of turnover of £27 billion with further forecast of more growth as clients start to replace loss staff they had to let go during the down turn.
Recruitment agencies place approximately 1.4 million temporary workers each week and over 780,000 permanent employees each year, with the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) finding that in recent years, permanent recruitment turnover has grown by 22%.
The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) said that 83% of organisations hire temporary and permanent staff through recruitment firms.
This includes hiring for businesses in all sectors of the economy, from secretarial and administrative jobs to the IT and banking industries.
There is an ongoing increase in the number of staff employed in the recruitment industry, indicating room for more recruitment agencies to bring their expertise to companies across the UK.
