2018 Mid Year Growth Review: There’s no stopping Essential now!



As we have reached the half way point of the year, we have gathered a few statistics to show how we are doing against last year.

It has been a fantastic year for Essential’s growth- one that we predict will get bigger and better!


Gross Margin against last year 27%


 width=Total Company Perms against Target 28%


 Our year-on-year growth tells us that our business model is working, and that our staff are motivated and happy.  2018 has been a testing year for recruiters as the unemployment levels reached just 4.2%  – great news for the general population, not so great news for employers looking to hire!

Even in these testing times, we’re pleased to have seen such a dramatic increase against our targets.

Here’s to the rest of 2018 following suit!
