Unpredictability has been the by-word for most business in 2019, and the rhythms of recruitment have been tested in the wake of Brexit and an unknown future.
But at One Step HQ, we’ve been celebrating – Our 3rd quarter is tracking to be our busiest quarter in 5 years!
Despite widespread candidate shortages we’ve always been confident our process stands above market fluctuations, and this is proven by an enormously busy July, with every sector in all 3 branches increasing both temp and perm placements.
The 2nd quarter of 2019 was our 2nd busiest quarter in 5 years, and the current quarter has already taken the crown for the most effective 3 months in recent memory. It’s worth giving huge credit to our Taunton Commercial and Technical teams, who have individually delivered an incredible quarter of excellent service – our Technical Desk has broken it’s record for the number of people placed in permanent placements in any July in the past 8 years!
With the changes to IR35 coming into play in 2020, and almost all employers taking stock of the potential ramifications of a no-deal Brexit, a trusted and reliable local recruitment service has always been our benchmark, and it’s paying dividends to our clients, future-proofing them against staff shortages.
