About This Report


Temporary-employment placement agencies supply workers to replace or supplement a client's existing labour force on a short-term basis. Industry operators serve clients across a broad range of industries. The industry is heavily affected by economic conditions because, during a downturn, companies tend to prefer to preserve the jobs of permanent employees. However, temporary workers are often the first to be hired as economic conditions recover. There are approximately 1.7 million temporary workers in the United Kingdom, representing over 5% of the total labour force.

Businesses in this industry provide their clients with workers to temporarily replace or supplement their existing labour force. The individuals are employed by the agency but supervised by the client at the worksite. The industry excludes employees outsourced on a long-term basis, who are classified in other industries according to the activity they perform.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
