Market Research: Demand for a Recruitment Agency

Date: October 1998 - March 1999
Client: Lancashire Area West Training & Enterprise Council; CareerLink (Careers Service); University of Central Lancashire
The three client organisations were considering the development of a joint venture recruitment agency and commissioned Papworth Research & Consultancy to do the following:
  • Develop a comprehensive database of companies in the North West operating in competition to CareerLink (i.e. companies offering similar services).

  • Assess the operation of these companies with regard to such matters as pricing, size of databases, size of company, area of operation etc.

    The methodology had two stages, as follows:
  • Interrogation of Business Pages, on the internet, and of business directories held by CareerLink to compile a comprehensive database.

  • A telephone survey of companies on the database.
