Franchising Trends for 2017...
We are well into 2017 and for the UK it’s been a very uncertain and temperamental year. This is mainly due to Politics...
If you’ve been in a professional setting for a couple of years now, chances are you’ve been approached by a recruiter offering you a fantastic job opportunity, but according to the most recent report, perhaps it’s a recruitment franchise job you should be asking about.
The recruitment industry appears to be booming with an increase of 9% from the previous year; the value to the UK market in 2016 was £35.1 billion (according to Recruitment & Employment Confederation). This sum was mainly contributed by the 9,565 recruitment agencies operating in the UK that all had an annual turnover exceeding £250,000.
The recruitment industry hasn’t escaped the grasps of the impending Brexit, which seemed to promise negative impressions on UK industries, however, the recruitment forecast looks good and Brexit is likely to be a good influencer for the market. Brexit is likely to lessen the income of prospect job candidates from EU citizens and this shallowing of the employee pool will potentially result in less applicants for UK listed job roles. This decrease in hopefuls will increase the likelihood that companies will use recruitment agencies to help fill their positions as they are unable to do it by themselves.
With the candidate availability naturally reducing in the UK market by a decrease in unemployment, plus Brexit, the recruitment market is expected to grow between 2.9% – 6.9% next year.
Now we know the market exists, for aspiring franchisees, it’s also important to understand what sort of income you are to expect from this franchise opportunity. The margins that are received from staffing is where recruitment franchises make money; up to 26% are securing margins of 20% or more and only 1% of agencies are securing below 10% margins. The figures demonstrate that income isn’t an issue, as long as you negotiate your contracts with dexterity.
