Why a recruitment startup?

November 26, 2009 at 6:08 pm Leave a comment

For the record, I have never worked in recruitment and my only experience of the sector is being recruited by headhunters.  All I do know is that in the UK it is a £26bn market of which £2-300m is spent online (largely through job boards).

Other attributes of the market:

  • Very fragmented – by sector, company size, role-type (exec through to temp)
  • Large number of “people” driven processes drive inefficiencies
  • Software / technology is immature

Based on the above characteristics it is my opinion that this market is an attractive one to launch a disruptive web-based solution.
