In a measure to help ease the burden on the recruiting sector in a difficult economic climate the IOR has responded to George Osborne’s Autumn Statement by freezing its membership fees at 2011 levels. It is further calling for other recruitment bodies to reconsider their 2013 planned fee increases.
Since this is my first answer on the IOR site I thought I would choose a question that focuses on one of the biggest challenges for a startup recruitment business – its staff.
As an investor it is heartening to read such things and as a recruitment business owner, combined with a suitable exit strategy, the options open to you (apart from organic growth) in the expansion of your business are improving.
The IOR’s qualifications are fully-accredited and underpinned by the British National Occupations Standards, we feel that they will make the perfect partner to support our training and educational mandate.
