74% of recruiters declare 2013 better than 2012


UK recruiters are optimistic about the future of the industry as we head into 2014, with 74% declaring that this year has been better than 2012, and 18% stating that business has remained on an even keel.

The encouraging statistic comes from Mercury xRM software developer and recruitment expert Crimson Limited. The rapid recruitment solutions provider polled 88 businesses from its recruitment partner network on their business levels for 2013 and found that three quarters of recruiters in the UK were celebrating a good year for business, with just two per cent of recruiters stating that 2013 had been a poor year. Only two percent of recruiters had a worse year than they did in 2012, and eleven per cent described 2013 as a ‘fantastic’ year for business.
