Why go into recruitment?

This is a multi-billion Euro industry, the demand for our executive recruitment services has never been greater. Doug Bugie, Antal International Network CEO, says “The recruitment industry now tops the list of the world’s most active business sectors, giving us confidence in this highly profitable industry. As the downturn has ended the growing war for talent that has already broken out it is likely to become fiercer over the following months, as businesses look to hire people who will enable them to secure best advantage in improving markets.”

The Antal Global Snapshot (our highly quoted quarterly labour market survey) reported that not only have recruitment levels in the UK increased since the beginning of the year, they are now the highest amongst the larger economies in Western Europe. There has never been a better time to get involved in this lucrative industry. Antal franchise owners operate at the mid-to-senior level of employment:
