Aug. 11, 2009 - PRLog -- The global population has had enough time to experience the negative effects of the recession: fewer jobs, lower wages and a lot of insecurities. Some of the key players that were affected by these new economic conditions were the recruitment agencies. While many of these businesses are going through tough times, some recruitment companies are still thriving despite the new conditions: the specialist agencies. These agencies, that deal with the recruitment and placement of specialized personnel were somehow protected from the negative effects of the economic crisis. The reason for that is very straightforward: during difficult times, the most important people for a company are those with strong capabilities and with competences that can be clearly described, measured and put to good use.

The overwhelming number of candidates that are currently looking for a job has an equally powerful negative counterpart (from the recruitment agencies' point of view): namely the lack of jobs on the market and the companies' resistance to working with third parties in order to acquire new employees.

The most innovative and creative agencies have taken advantage of these new and unique conditions and decided to expand their business by improving the quality of their services and by entering new markets. According to Linda Nuamah, Recruitment Manager at Skillz Recruitment (, a small recruitment agency in Netherlands, this is the perfect moment to try to enter new markets and to go international. The young company has recently employed new personnel for their newly-established International Recruitment Department and now they started offering their services also to companies outside Netherlands. With a focus on 'Specialist Personnel', they are recruiting for the Finance Industry, IT,  Engineering, Logistics& Purchasing, Supply Chain Management and Sales& Marketing.

Other players in the industry are taking advantage of these new conditions to grow their business (mainly due to the abundance of candidates), but as it is the case everywhere in the Service sector, only the businesses that are constantly improving their products and can react promptly to the changes in the market will come out as winners.

As specialists say: "The end is near". If only everybody would survive to see it.

About Skillz Recruitment: Skillz Recruitment is a young and dynamic recruitment agency specialized in recruiting and staffing professionals in specialist fields. Skillz Recruitment was founded by a young professional.

After working for several international recruitment agencies for a number of years, we noticed that the essential parts of recruitment, such as an eye for quality and the agreement with the client, got lost in the process. The larger agencies are often focused on the commercial results and, as an outcome, too frequently little attention is given to the skills of candidates and the wishes of companies. We believe that one can be just successful if we work together to achieve mutual successful goals. At Skillz Recruitment this means that together with you, we will look at the possibilities to come to concrete agreements.
