Hello, Share Bunnies. A long time ago, I dumped my shares in Impellam (IPEL) though I think my wife may still be a holder. I recall that I followed some advice on this beautiful website to part company with this across-the-board recruitment agency. They'd had a good run and so I made a handsome profit. But the company seemed to be running out of steam. Yet if I were commended to buy the share today, I might do so on the latest results.

Hello Share Spooners. I’ve long held that recruitment agencies are a decent bet in these turbulent times. The reason is that unemployment seems to be on the back foot in various parts of the globe, including here in Blighty.

Hello Share Squelchers. You may or may not recall that I am a fan of recruitment agencies. This is because there are more jobs in the UK than ever before. Also, if you are looking for employment, going to an agency is probably the best chance you have. As my son found out, they will find you a temporary job . And that comes without your having to be interviewed by the new employer. Then, in many cases, the job becomes permanent and there you are.

Hello Share Shunters: Let me see if I can interest you in a firm called Impellam Group (IPEL). They are in the job recruitment game. This was not a booming business in the long, dark period after the Credit Crunch. With no jobs going how could you make a crust when nobody was taking on anybody? But things are better now, with many more spare jobs, even if many of them are not paying quite as well as they used to.
