Do employment increases show a golden age in recruitment?

It has recently been revealed by the Office for National Statistics that UK unemployment fell to a seven-year low of 5.4% in the three months to August. The number of people out of work fell to 1.77 million between June and August this year, which is down 79,000 from the previous quarter.  Such improvements in employment have been accredited especially to advancements in the recruitment process – successfully allocating people to appropriate roles and therefore effectively filling positions.

Pulling in the positives

For some people, finding a job they are suitable for can be a challenge, especially if they have never really found their niche or view a range of job applications but feel unsure regarding their eligibility. Thankfully, recruitment agencies have been popping up all over the UK to help with this – hence their role in improved employment levels. In 2014 8,000 recruitment agencies were in operation and that number has increased since.

The opportunity for you to make a difference

Therefore, the time has perhaps never been better to get involved in recruitment. After all, not only does it help to provide people efficiently with work, but it opens up job opportunities in itself. Working in recruitment is evidently rewarding: using your own skills to help other people realise theirs and make applications they are happy with. And it’s also the opportunity to push forward these positive employment statistics for the future.

Therefore if you are interested in recruitment, or just want to find out more about how the industry is making a real difference, it matters to talk to the experts. A prime example is GSR2R, a rec2rec agency working from a strong London base. You can visit their website for more information at –
