HOT 100: Is your company on fire?

It's time to take action and see if your recruitment firm has what it takes to make our HOT 100 list.

Act now for your company to be considered for this year’s Recruiter HOT 100, the highly regarded league table of UK recruiters – so advises Sue Dodd, director of Agile Intelligence, who is compiling this year’s prestigious report.

Now in its 14th iteration Recruiter’s HOT 100, produced in association with Agile Intelligence, ranks UK recruitment businesses by productivity, providing recruitment businesses with invaluable business intelligence that ranks their ability to get the most out of their most valuable asset – their staff – against their industry peers.

As the UK and the wider world slowly emerge from lockdown restrictions, this year’s HOT 100 will prove especially invaluable to owners of UK recruitment businesses.

“Wherever you look, staff are the key to your future recovery once the economy begins to motor again. And to understand and measure that improvement in productivity, there are few better benchmarks than the HOT 100, based upon gross profit per head,” says Dodd. Based on 2019/20 corporate accounts that predate the lockdown, the 2020 Recruiter HOT 100 will be especially fitting to provide an excellent benchmark against which your recovery can be measured.”

The 2020 Recruiter HOT 100 will be a timely gauge of what can be achieved with good, well-motivated staff.

To be considered, your recruitment business needs to have: a sales turnover of at least £5m, a minimum of £1.5m in GP (net fee income) and an average headcount of at least 20 employees over the year of review. Then email your latest audited accounts to [email protected]. Entrants will be sent a short questionnaire. Deadline for entries is Friday, 18 September. Please note: global search/headhunters are not included in Recruiter’s HOT 100.
