Recruitment Practice & HR

Recruiters help thousands of people find a new permanent job and on any given day are responsible for over a million agency workers in the UK labour market.

Labour market figures published by theOffice for National Statistics (ONS) show the employment rate at 76.1% for April to June 2019, the joint-highest since comparable records began.

Permanent and temporary placements are on the rise with the industry expected to grow by another 5% by 2021.

The recruitment industry continues to grow and the number of people employed within the sector surpasses 115k.

To support growth and help raise training standards within the industry, Skillsfirst has worked with employers and professional bodies to develop nationally recognised recruitment qualifications and apprenticeship frameworks.

The qualifications, which are available at levels 2, 3 and 4, give learners a clear progression route, from resourcer to recruitment consultant and team leader/manager.
