How Recruitment Agencies Can Win New Clients


According to recent figures from the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC), confidence in UK recruitment firms remains high. The REC found that on average recruitment agencies received a satisfaction rating of 93%, illustrating their strong performance amidst the pressure of heightened demand.

According to the report, almost three quarters of employers believe that economic conditions are improving and that 86% of hirers plan to add to their permanent workforce over the next quarter, whilst 79% plan to do so in the medium term. Eight in ten hirers said they used agencies to gain short-term access to key strategic skills.

The above figures show that for small and medium-sized recruitment agencies, there is a current potential for growth. How well they utilise this potential, depends highly on their ability to secure new business. So, how can recruitment agencies work towards winning new clients?
