Like many sectors in the professional services arena, recruitment and training have experienced mixed fortunes in recent years. Recruitment has become more dynamic and fast-paced, with short term contracts becoming the norm, and training has emerged as a strong market.
And as with most markets, both sectors are becoming increasingly competitive – margins are being squeezed, tender processes are becoming more complex, and credit control issues more common.
Having worked closely with some of the UK’s leading recruitment firms, we understand the accounting issues you face, and have experience implementing strategies to overcome these challenges in order to maximise growth. For example in recruitment we appreciate the importance of fast-tracking payment to avoid complications outside terms and conditions, and have successfully worked with businesses to incentive customers to pay on time.
Furthermore, our experience and insight makes us well placed to add value to companies in these markets. Challenges such how to motivate and retain talented staff with more than just a traditional commission based model, for example, are particularly relevant. We can help by advising you on the best employee incentive schemes available, both for staff and the company.
We can also support your business goals by:
- Supporting applications for funding and investment
- Minimising tax liability
- Improving credit control and cash flow
- Providing market intelligence and benchmarking competitors
