Steve Huxham, chairman of the Recruitment Society, said that many recruiters will be inundated with demand from applicants in the near future, particularly in sectors such as financial services, and they therefore need to be ready for the influx.
His comments follow the publication of a report by Monster which showed that there was a sharp rise in the number of applicants for financial services jobs in January compared with the same period in 2010.
Mr Huxham said that recruiters need to be capable of handling increased demand, however, or have a strategy in place to outsource this process if necessary.
"If you aspire to be a successful recruiter, then volume shouldn't make a difference one way or the other. If you're saying you're overwhelmed, then plan for it. A lot of that can be outsourced," he added.
As a recruitment provider to many of the UK's major banks, mortgage lenders and building societies Aaron Wallis have a deserved reputation within Financial Services recruitment. Their dedicated FS consultants recruit sales professionals across Retail Banking and Financial Services including IFA's and Mortgage Broking.
