Sep 2009 - Voyager sees signs of recruitment upturn
Green shoots just in time for Autumn?
Voyager announces that they have seen a 15% increase in quotes to customers in August compared to July, supported by a 4 month trend.
Voyager Sales Director, Paul Thompson commented today “Some may say it is too early to tell but the more pro-active recruiters seem to be making the most of the opportunity and are attracting the best recruitment talent. While it is certainly the case that Recruitment businesses have contracted sharply during the downturn, with some areas of the industry laying off large numbers of their staff, there are now signs of an upturn. Additional licence requests for customers together with the demand for training has increased by 15% compared with prior months and this during the usually quiet August period.”
"Voyager Software is a great barometer for the Recruitment industry. With a product range spanning the entire Recruitment landscape from offerings for the professional perm market to solutions for temp and contract we cover virtually every market sector. This upturn in business is an encouraging sign”, adds MD Simon Warburton.
