A fabulous five years
ONE TO ONE RECRUITMENT IS CELEBRATING ITS FIFTH BIRTHDAY THIS YEAR AND CLARE HUTCHISON EXPLAINS JUST HOW WELL THE BUSINESS HAS DONE.
The strong economy is creating a challenging environment for recruitment companies at the moment:
Since 2011, employment rates have continued to rise, resulting in fewer people being unemployed;
In December 2014, half a million more people were in employment, compared to a year earlier, with a total of 73% of all 16 to 64-year-olds being employed;
In 2011, an average job posting would have attracted 250 applicants, whereas now it attracts only 39.
If you combine these circumstances with the number of large high street recruiters and 250 commercial job boards in operation, and the knowledge that out of 200 views on a job, 10% of viewers will apply, with only 1.5% being suitable for the job, you can see the significance of a small independent recruitment specialist, such as One to One Recruitment, being able to successfully establish themselves as a credible market player.
One to One Recruitment’s success is based on meeting the requirements of small and medium sized businesses that don’t have the time, resources or expertise to find the right person who will add value to their organisation. This is a refreshing change from high street recruitment agencies that would rather just fill a position as quickly as possible, get the commission and move on to the next job. One to One Recruitment takes a consultative approach, meeting the changing requirements of clients who don’t just want to be sold a candidate, but require their suppliers to understand their business, build a relationship with them, and educate and advise the company on the type of candidates that are best suited to their business.
One to One Recruitment go far beyond what typical high street recruiters offer by delivering a 360° service. We are now beginning to lay the foundations for future growth by reviewing our business strategy and setting up new divisions across Yorkshire, allowing us to expand into new market sectors.Back to news
