APSCo heads down under on trade delegation

Recruitment trade body the Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo) is heading down under on a trade delegation.

The trade delegation to Australia begins on 19 March and follows on from similar trips to Singapore, Brazil, Japan and the US in previous years.

“With a $19.6bn (£11.3bn) turnover, the Australian staffing sector is the seventh largest in the world and expected to see a continued rise in growth,” said APSCo CEO Ann Swain. 

“Supported by a robust economy, Australia is a thriving market within the global recruitment industry, employing over 93,000 people and with over 6,900 recruitment agencies in operation it stands as a highly competitive market and desired destination for businesses. With a fast growing economy and infrastructure, British organisations are seeing further opportunity on an international basis, which we are excited to explore further.”
