Is 2018 a Record Year for Recruitment Start-Ups?

Posted 15th November 2018 in For Businesses

2018 is set to be a record year for new recruitment start-ups, according to new statistics published by Clearly PR.


Using data obtained from Companies House under a Freedom of Information Act, the statistics show that over 7,500 new recruitment agencies have been registered since the beginning of the year – an average rate of just under 850 per month. The company predicts that this number will reach 10,000 by the end of the year, a record high.


The fastest growing city for new recruitment start-ups was London, with a total of 2,962 new agencies registered in 2018. Rounding out the top five were Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds and Leicester.


2017 saw 9,001 recruitment start-ups register – will 2018 be able to beat this number by the year’s end?
