The recruitment industry continues to thrive, with recent figures revealing that there are now nearly 40,000 agencies registered as trading in the UK.
Figures taken from Companies House by Clearly PR, found that a total of 1,199 agencies were registered as newly trading agencies between 1st – 30th April, compared to 981 in March.
This puts the start-up rate for recruitment agencies higher last month than at any time since 2012. Since the start of 2018, over 3,900 (3,957) have been registered.
According to Clearly PR, the continued rise in the number of recruitment start-ups is reflective of the confidence of the sector compared to other areas of the economy.
While several industries have seen a downturn as a consequence of the government’s failure to provide clarity over Britain’s trading relationship with Europe once Brexit comes into effect, the recruitment industry remains buoyant.
