Good news at last for recruiting professionals

Good news at last for recruiting professionals
 
The number of roles available in the UK for in-house recruiters has gone up for the first time in twelve months according to Aspen Partners International the global provider of in-house recruiting talent.
 
The Aspen Index which monitors available roles for in-house recruiters in the UK as well as benchmarking this against the wider opportunities within HR in the UK has seen a small but important increase in available opportunities in June compared to May 2009. Commenting on the announcement Director Andy Mountney said, This is great news for recruiters and HR professionals, we have been monitoring the market for fourteen months and since it peaked for recruiters in July 2008 we have seen a decline every single month since. While the figures show only a small increase in opportunities for in-house recruiters the break put on the decline should not be under-estimated.
Further good news came in supporting figures that showed there had been a rise in available opportunities across all HR disciplines.
 
The Index is available on the new Aspen website and has backdated monthly rankings to May 2008. The index has been averaged out over the first year of results to 100 and saw a peak of 171 in July 2008 compared to 39 in June 2009 and a low of 36 in May 2009. Andy Mountney added, Were delighted that well be able to bring a regular barometer of the recruitment market to HR professionals through the new site, Linkedin, and Twitter. The figures show us that conditions are still extraordinarily tough for recruitment professionals seeking new opportunities and the fall of over 75% in the index in a year shows just how quickly the market collapsed while more recruiters found themselves seeking work. We will continue to update the market through 2009 via the Aspen Index and hope that the upward trend of June continues.
