London, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/09/2014 -- Leading Rec 2 Rec recruiter; GSR2R today welcomed the announcement from APSCo (the Association of Professional Staffing Companies) that professional recruitment firms have seen a rise in permanent vacancies of 22% from this time last year. Combined with the Treasury’s 3% GDP growth forecast (higher than the 1.8% expected at the beginning of the year), it spells good news for recruiters across the vast majority of the UK.
With only Scotland showing signs of a slowdown in recruitment (possibly due to the uncertainty surrounding the forthcoming referendum), growth is accelerating across a range of professional sectors in the rest of the country. Impressive figures have been reported in the accounting and finance sector, with vacancies up 13%, and in marketing and media, where a rise of 16% has been seen. This means that both sectors are now offering a record number of jobs as they continue to expand and grow. The IT and engineering sectors are seeing even stronger growth, with permanent vacancies in IT rising by 23%, and engineering vacancies up by 42% compared to the same time last year.
Cheryl Wing, Managing Director of GSR2R said “These figures are great news for the UK economy and in particular for the recruitment sector, who will see a positive impact across the board. We have seen a sharp rise in recruiters using our services to procure the best and brightest recruitment talent for their teams, and this looks set to continue. Recruiters are realising they have to act now to ensure they get the right people on board to help exploit this expansion of the jobs market, and that there is no better way of doing that than using the services of a specialist Rec2Rec agency.
With our specialist market knowledge, we can provide recruiters with a professional, prompt and transparent recruitment process that ensures results. We are looking forward to 2015 and expect it to be an even better year, helping our clients continue to grow and succeed in their respective sectors”.
