The number of people unemployed in the UK fell in the three months to May by 65,000 – the total now stands at 8.1 per cent, which is the lowest it has been in a year. The Office for National Statistics said this was in part due to increased recruitment for the Olympic Games.
The figures show a well-needed boost to an economy still in recession, and are a good sign that demand for recruitment services is growing. There is also confidence that the trend will continue beyond the Olympics, with hope for the games’ positive impact on economic growth as well as the continued development promised by Olympic legacy programmes.
The recent G4S recruitment debacle proves that there is a serious need for effective recruiters who can deliver upon what they promise. This clear gap in the recruitment market will provide ambitious and successful recruiters with clear opportunities to break away and start up their own recruitment agencies. Indeed, more people than ever before are starting their own recruitment businesses with the support of recruitment agency start-up service, Sonovate.
Sonovate have entered the recruitment market as a disruptive force that aims to empower senior recruitment consultants with the necessary tools and support services to ditch their typical 9-5 jobs and start their own rewarding Limited businesses. The general job market across the UK has seen high levels of unemployment over the last year. However, businesses like Sonovate are offering life lines to those who seek the satisfaction and security of working for themselves and who want to achieve great things.
