Seize the opportunity grow

Today, the recruitment industry generates £42.3 billion, of which £37.8 billion (89%) is attributed to temporary hires supported by 31,000 UK recruitment agencies; 81% have less than 10 employees. Almost all major businesses in the industrial, logistic, and commercial sectors predict even more use of temporary labour; the outlook looks promising.

However, the reality is somewhat different, with skill shortages, increased time to source candidates, and legislative barriers, there are many spinning plates to recruit temporary labour, and that will see some agencies navigate into uncomfortable waters.

For successful agencies the traditional process of sourcing, placing and processing temporary candidates has been replaced. People’s needs have changed and processes have had to adapt, however, with the advancements of technology and available automation capability to save time, the question for competitive recruitment agencies isn’t ‘shall we switch to an automated system?’, it’s ‘which system best suits our business?’

Sourcing and retaining candidates sit high on the agenda of recruitment concerns; ask yourself how are you now sourcing your candidates, how do you communicate, how do you keep your candidates engaged to retain them?

When you start peeling back the layers of your recruitment processes and realise time consuming tasks can be eliminated or reduced, you’ll look beyond today’s immediate challenges and look towards a future solution which ensures your business grows and maximises the increase usage of temporary labour.
