A remarkable comeback as ANZ perm sales soar once again.

Looking back, in May 2020 we were faced with the greatest market crash our industry had witnessed. Results tumbled everywhere, perm sales instantly plunged by 60% to 70% or more and the future outlook was grim. As we all adjusted to the new challenges and Governments stepped in with some very effective cash handouts, economies and business confidence started to improve. By September the perm market had already come back to life and by March 2021 many of our participants are reporting record levels of activity. All of the indicators suggest this will be a record year and if we can get the borders open I am expecting to see unprecedented levels of growth. They say a picture is worth a thousand words and the chart below says it all, what a comeback!
