FM services sector is on the up

According to the latest quarterly report from the CBI Service Sector Survey, the FM services market has seen a healthy boost in levels of business. 48% of companies surveyed reported a rise in business volumes, 22% increased selling prices and 47% an overall increase in profitability.

The UK services sector remains the largest part of the economy, accounting for about three quarters of economic activity and this increase in activity is mainly as a result of the wider economic recovery and improved confidence.

The other key development in the market is the recent trend in outsourcing and shift away from single service contracts towards bundled services and total facilities management packages. Private and public sector clients are now looking  to reduce procurement costs through seeking ‘one-stop-shop’ solutions, a trend which  is expected to continue.

What does this mean for the sector and how does this translate for recruitment? With the recent return to positive growth, the FM sector is now expected to continue developing with a predicted forecast of £23.2 billion by 2018.

In response to this companies are now required to upskill their existing workforce and attract new talented recruits capable of adopting new technologies in order for businesses to maintain their competitive advantage in the workplace.

Macallam remains well positioned within the FM arena to assist with any potential recruitment needs either on permanent or interim basis.
