November has seen the beginning of an exciting end to 2011: we have increased the temp workforce again and have received a large number of exciting new jobs to work on for some household names within the specialist divisions . We have also managed to put the ground work in on some exciting initiatives for 2012 / 2013.
For me personally, our most successful news for 2011 has been the continuing growth of business from many of our clients across market research, broadcast and language recruitment, and an unprecedented increase in the number of candidate referrals we are getting (This year has been the best ever) .
Whilst we have always had a relatively high rate of referrals, it seems that the hard work has paid off and we are not forgotten by many of our candidates. For us, the job market has gone against the grain of the forecasts we see in the press, and there has been a significant rise in the number of jobs becoming available within larger organisations as well as dynamic smaller specialists. In just under 11 months we have seen revenues increase by 28%.
