Over 5000 new recruitment agencies launched in 2015
In 2015, 5,110 new recruitment agencies launched in the UK, according to research from Sonovate.
The data, taken from Companies House, reveals a 144% increase on the 2,092 agencies launched in 2010.
This follows research from the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC), which revealed that last year industry turnover increased by 9.7% to reach £31.5 billion. This makes the UK the third biggest recruitment market globally after the United States and Japan.
Richard Prime, CEO of Sonovate, commented, “The UK recruitment sector is growing faster than ever before and these figures are just the latest indication of the robust health of our industry.
