It’s official. Recruitment International’s Top 250 Report for 2014 is further evidence of Investigo’s growing market presence in UK recruitment. Investigo’s CEO Gary Watson shared his thoughts on our rankings and the road ahead.
“Recruitment is often described as the ultimate people business where people buy people - literally. The UK is arguably the most competitive market in the world (third only in size to the US and Japan) so to grow here is no mean feat.
Our job is "recruiting talent": for ourselves and for our clients. That’s "what we do" but "why do we do it?" The answer in simple terms is that we believe that with the right people, you can make anything happen - and that’s why relationships and expertise are at the centre of everything we do.
As we enter our 12th year of trading, whilst we are proud to have been recognised as 81st out of 250 in the UK recruitment market by turnover, we place greater emphasis on our position in each of the professional markets in which we specialise:
We only enter markets where we believe we can achieve a Top 10 position within three years and a Top 5 position within five years, so growth opportunities for us exist across the professions of Strategy & Change, HR, Procurement & Supply Chain, Property and SAP.
We’ve made a good start - and yet there are opportunities everywhere we look. Our greatest strength and our biggest limitation is how quickly we can keep "recruiting talent".”
The annual Recruitment International Top 250 Report concentrates on the period of January to December 2013 and is based on UK figures only. It is the only complete report in the UK recruitment industry listing all agencies with a turnover in excess of £5million, with 424 firms qualifying in the 2014 edition.
Recruitment International’s Top 250 Report is used by a diverse range of professionals including HR professionals, purchasing executives, Government officials, analysts, brokers and financial experts.
