Executive Summary

Since the recession, the UK recruitment market has continued to remain challenging, with sluggish economic growth and public-sector spending cuts driving demand for staff down. However, while this has had a severe impact on demand for permanent employees, the temporary recruitment market has continued to observe growth over the past 3 years, with figures compiled by The Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) revealing that the market for temporary and contract recruitment increased by 21.2% between 2009 and 2013, despite growth slowing somewhat in recent years. Meanwhile, the number of temporary and contract placements witnessed a 5.6% rise during the same 5-year period.
