ONS statistics show that London recruitment agencies create some 31.5% of recruitment agency turnover in the UK. Despite this, by our estimates, just 22% of the UK’s recruitment consultants are based in central London. This discrepancy shows the health of the London job market - where salaries are 61% higher than the average for the rest of the UK.
The highest concentration of recruitment agencies in London is in the City of London. In just over one square mile, we estimate this area contains around 31% of the recruitment agencies in London. The next most popular areas in London for recruitment agencies are Westminster (with around 6% of the total share), and Mayfair (with around 5.7%).
London has some of the highest rates of pay in the country. The ONS estimate that in 2017, the Cities of London and Westminster had an average annual salary of £65,049. This compared to just £29,009 for the UK as a whole. The highest mean salaries were in London’s Poplar and Limehouse district - where an average person would have earned £79,133 in 2017.
Much of London’s economic success is due to the strength of its Finance industry, and this is mirrored in the number of Financial Services recruitment agencies you will find there (it is the 5th most popular industry recruited for in London). Other popular industries include IT, Accounting and Finance, Executive / Management and Administration.
