Maximising the contract recruitment opportunity

Contract recruitment, worth £35.7bn to the UK economy*, with over 1.2 million contractors actively working, is a lucrative business.

Contract recruitment remains an untapped opportunity

Traditionally, for businesses that want to enter the contract recruitment market, both startups and established agencies, there have been lots of barriers.

It can take end clients up to 56 days* to pay their invoices, which puts a huge strain on cash flow – the lifeblood of any agency.

Then there’s all the extra admin involved in growing a contract book. From credit checks to credit control, it’s all stuff that keeps you from getting on the phone selling and growing your business.
