This month the annual Recruiter Poll came to a close. David Head, editor of Recruitment International magazine closed the poll and picked the winner at random.

See the Results and who the winner was.....

A snapshot of the results show;

  • 4/10 expect to fill 60-90% of their vacancies – now there’s market confidence for you!
  • The most popular way to expand a recruitment business was by simply employing more staff.  Is it really that simple?  Only 40% of you would Head-hunt using your own skills to find that person.
  • 17% felt that a new website was key to expansion in 2011 – yet entrants said just 20% of new business comes from the web
  • 60% of you are thinking about expanding overseas in some form in 2011
  • Over half or Recruiters get the majority of business from referrals and recommendations and 40% do that from telesales
