  2. 2. Take your business to the next level The APSCo New Enterprise programme has been designed by recruitment experts specifically for small businesses – whether they are new start-ups or SME’s looking to achieve their next level of growth. If you are a rising star, it will provide you with the business support, toolkits, downloadable model documents and mentoring opportunities you need to drive your future success. • Build a sustainable and successful business • Save time, get unique supplier discounts and reduce risk • Access over 20 support services Professional recruitment is in our DNA Why APSCo membership is the key to success for new enterprises The recruitment sector continues to grow strongly each year. The latest annual APSCo/Deloitte Recruitment Index shows that 69% reported NFI growth in the last 12 months. This growth and the trend for clients to harness the knowledge of niche and micro niche recruitment partners has increased the number of start-ups in the sector. In 2015, over 1400 recruitment companies were launched - the largest volume of emerging businesses for a decade. This surge in new recruitment enterprises has further increased competition in the market place making it increasingly difficult to grow a sustainable business: over half of new start-ups fail in the first three years. APSCo’s New Enterprise programme provides members with an important competitive edge that makes them more likely to realise their full potential. Our downloadable model document and specialist helpdesks will save you time and money whilst reducing business risk. Our training courses, mentoring support and networking events provide unique development opportunities whilst the APSCo brand demonstrates your commitment to high quality standard to clients and candidates. In 2015, 95% of APSCo members rated our performance as ‘Good’, ‘Very Good’ or ‘Excellent’. No members said it was poor. Our strong member engagement and commitment to excellence helped APSCo membership grow by nearly 20% last year and now APSCo is truly international – with separate operations in Germany and Asia. There has never been a better time to join APSCo. Why not unleash the potential in your business! APSCo New Enterprise
