Recruitment profession has vital role in supporting Scottish economy

(2 minutes to read)

The ‘Professional Recruitment: The Beating Heart of the Scottish Economy’ report shows just how important the recruitment profession is to the Scottish economy.

A recent report from the Association of Professional staffing (APSCo) has revealed how valuable the recruitment profession is for supporting business growth and boosting the Scottish economy.

The research features insights from recruitment leaders including Managing Director of Bright Purple, Paul Curry, CEO of BE-IT Resourcing, Gareth Biggerstaff, and Director of Aspen People, Nigel Fortnum – as well as highlighting the importance of flexible working, and the role of APSCo members in boosting productivity and dynamism in the labour market.

Furthermore, it explores how apprenticeships, self-employment, and the impact of Brexit will influence recruitment and how the role of the sector must be recognised as a driver of productivity.

Commenting on the report, Regional Director at APSCo, Moya Rylands, said, “The recruitment profession is valuable in supporting business growth and boosting the Scottish economy. With employment in the country at its highest rate, our members are keen to work alongside the Government and others to reduce skills gaps and increase productivity. Equipped with the personal knowledge on the skills and careers most valuable to individuals and the economy as whole, many of our members on the ground are already working in partnerships with schools, businesses and Skills Scotland.”

“It’s clear from our research, that in order to support the development of talent, the Government must increase access to existing apprenticeship funds for Scottish businesses and continue to develop apprenticeship programs. APSCo members working in tandem with Scottish Enterprise will also help both sides to gain an understanding of the skills demand and motivate more individuals working in the sector to cement long term growth for the country.”
