Six in the City: Recruitment Agencies

I grew up in London – the mean streets of Clapham. My whole perception of The Square Mile growing up was that’s where successful people were. My dad would arrive home suited and booted after a day’s work. Sometimes with pick ’n’ mix from the sweet cart in Liverpool Street. He was my hero.

Prestige, grandeur, esteem, success. All words I still associate with the City of London.

People in suits looking powerful.

Offices in buildings with skylines for days.

Companies start in coffee shops, garages, attics and offices way out of town. When they’re in the City they’re legit. The real deal.

With a huge number of candidates, clients and fees packed into 1 square mile, there’s no sense in ignoring it, the City is the place to be. There’ll be deals at your heals:

– For every 1 resident there are 2 businesses.

– There are over 15,000 companies based in the City of London

– Companies registered in the City generate over £45bn

– The City takes up 0.001% of land in the UK but is responsible for 3% of the UK’s economic output

– Over 400,000 people work in the city of London

Here are six city-based companies perfectly positioned to propel your recruitment career.
