UK's Leading Recruiters 2024

The UK’s Leading Recruiters 2024 Special Report was compiled following the launch of surveys by Statista among your peers, clients and candidates. It was primarily through this process involving direct contact with your peers and public calls for participation, that the UK’s Leading Recruiters were identified.

UK's Leading Recruiters 2024

For the first time, the Financial Times and Statista are awarding the title of the UK’s Leading Recruiters 2023 to organisations in the following categories: Executive Search, Permanent Placement, Staffing, Biotech & Pharma, Business & Professional Services, Education, Energy & Renewables, Engineering & Industry, Financial Services, Health & Social Care, High Tech & IT, Hospitality, and Oil & Gas.

Between 17th April and 18th June 2023, the independent market research institute and statistics platform Statista conducted broad surveys among:

  • External recruiters (e.g. head-hunters, HR-consultants, staffing experts)
  • HR-managers/hiring managers from companies as clients of recruiting firms (including senior personnel in charge of staffing)
  • Candidates who have had experience with a recruiting firm (e.g. obtained a position)
    Participants had to qualify for the survey and were then able to recommend up to ten firms per category and reflect on their experience with them. The recruiting firms could be chosen from an extensive auto-completion list. Additionally, participants had the opportunity to recommend any other recruitment company not on the list.

The scoring is based purely on these recommendations, and only firms with above average recommendations in the respective category were awarded. The groups were sorted into these classes: gold (very frequently recommended), silver (frequently recommended), and bronze (recommended).

Participants’ responses, as well as the final selection of firms in each list, were carefully reviewed. Self-recommendations among recruitment agencies were excluded.
