I’ve just seen that the number of UK recruitment agency start-ups in the first half of this year almost reached 3,000 which is a 10% increase on the same period in 2015. In 2015, a total of 5,110 new recruitment agencies launched in the UK, a 144% increase on the 2,092 agencies launched in 2010. That’s a heck of a trend!

If you are one of those agencies, what advice do you have for anyone else contemplating taking the plunge? What is your top major DO and your number one DON’T?

I’d be fascinated to hear from you..
