"@Ken. Thanks for your comment. I think collaboration is valid but I wouldn't put it in the top ten reasons why small recruitment agencies stay small. Certainly groups like NPA Worldwide, for example, have done a very good job of building a way…"

"Ross,Thanks for sharing this. The way you presented it required a lot of thought and time.  However, you forgot one: collaboration instead of competition!   Most agencies have a winner takes all mentality. In order to win-your competitor…"

Why most small recruitment agencies stay small

Our industry is one that is dominated by small recruitment agencies. Yet, I would imagine that most of the owners of these small agencies would like to grow if they could grow profitably. Unfortunately much of the growth, if it does occur is not profitable growth.The Recruitment Industry Benchmarking (RIB) Report has 126 members across Australia and New Zealand and states an average member's staff size of 16 (12 fee earners and 4 support staff). IBIS World suggested in one recent report…See More

What I learned from my son's first recruitment experience

Then twenty four hours later he was offered another job. Given what I have dedicated my working life to, it has been a fascinating experience to observe the process of my own child attempting to enter the workforce for the first time. Guy turned fifteen in August and immediately announced that he wanted to get a job. I encouraged him to do so as I had started a casual retail job at the same age and apart…See More

Recruitment tenders and PSAs: Please get out of your own way!

I'm right! Yes, it does happen occasionally. I now have substantial evidence from a highly credible global consulting firm that supports one of my more common rants; the ludicrous waste of time and money that a vast number of tenders and Preferred Supplier Agreements (PSAs) prove to be. Wasteful recruitment tender and PSA processes are one of my pet hates, and I am willing to bet my house on the fact that they are also a very big hate of many recruiters. Last week in Australia, Top 4 global…See More
