UK RECESSION BOTTOMING OUT
UK RECESSION BOTTOMING OUT FOR RECRUITERS SAYS BOORMAN
TEMP AND INTERIM BUSINESSCONTINUING TO RISE
The biggest issue facing recruiters today is not the recession - but timing and getting prepared for the recovery. Thats according to Bill Boorman, Managing Director of the Bill Boorman Consultancy.
Through my radio show and LinkedIn good news group I have found that things are definitely getting better and we are rising as an industry off the bottom of the recession. Theres now a sustained trend of increased temp and interim business as well as a positive mood of confidence in the permanent market, says Boorman.
The hard work you have put in over the last 12 months that has kept you around and fighting will now start to pay off with revenue, adds Boorman. The key though is making sure that you retain those customers and grow them as business volumes increase - dont fall back into the habit of becoming "delivery" agents to a few key accounts!
Bill has already forecast that the recovery will come in May 2010 (the 10th to be exact) and emphasises that part of any recruiters planning should focus on candidates. They may be plentiful but you need to focus on maximising the opportunities given by a bulging database.
