RIDA Called In To Help Recruitment Agencies Deal with High Demand, as Job Vacancies Soar

ridaRecruitment agencies are facing a period of high demand right now, as statistics from the third quarter of 2015 revealed that job vacancies have grown by 20% compares with 2014’s figures. The increased number of vacancies is putting recruitment agencies under pressure to perform – and RIDA can help recruiters to cater to this demand, with a consultative service that helps directors to develop their recruitment agencies and unleash their full potential.

RIDA has just one aim – to assist recruitment businesses owners in growing and developing their own recruitment firms. With a set of personally developed programmes and strategies designed to help fulfil that exact brief, RIDA can help recruitment agencies to expand and grow during this time of high pressure, increasing their own profits and widening their reach within the industry.

Helen Reynolds, Chairman of RIDA, says, “At a time when the UK jobs market appears to be in recovery, recruiters are coming under increased pressure to perform, with plenty more job vacancies for them to fill. Here at RIDA, we can help them to cope with that increased demand. We can assist organisations as they identify their strategy and create the journey map that’s right for the business and its owners – all the while ensuring the business has the tools and support it needs to grow.

“Whether we’re helping to implement new back office solutions, brainstorming a new brand identity or performing a health check on the agency, RIDA has a multitude of consultancy services for recruitment agencies looking to make the most of this busy time.”

The roles that have been most in demand throughout Q3 have been marketing professionals, with advertised roles up an incredible 59%, followed by legal roles at 48% and secretarial support at 41%.
