Comment on A recession is coming. And you will not survive. by Helen Harvey

I echo everything you have said Greg. At that time I was Ops Director for Manpower looking after 35 offices in the south of England. We were totally temp and I thank my lucky stars for that because we actually thrived. However, I too watched perm recruitment companies go to the wall for precisely the reasons you have covered. For the past 10 years I have mentored recruitment leaders at start up/SME level and I always, always get them focused on cost control and diversification to help them through the next inevitable downturn. I like to think I might help save a few!
