- The growth of the European market was mainly driven by the UK domestic market which accounts for 30.4% of its total. Moreover, other European domestic markets have experienced strong growth as they are still not highly penetrated, but the German and French markets were below the European growth average. In fact, the French market was influenced by weak economic growth, while the German market has been unstable due to a weak demand trend for temporary employment. Other important domestic European markets are the Dutch and the Swiss which are home for two of the largest recruiting agencies in the world, Adecco and Randstad. Furthermore, the Italian market has presented an emerging dynamic for major recruitment agencies and is seen as a driver of future growth.
