Hays Share Price Information

Name Hays Epic HAS
Sector Support Services ISIN GB0004161021
Activites Hays plc is the leading global specialist recruitment group. Hays has 10,978 employees in 257 offices in 33 countries. In many of its global markets, the vast majority of professional and skilled recruitment is still done in-house, with minimal outsourcing to recruitment agencies, which presents substantial long-term structural growth opportunities. This has been a key driver of the rapid diversification and internationalisation of the Group, with the International business representing 76% of the Group's net fees as at 30 June 2018, compared with 25% in 2005. Its 7,464 consultants work in a broad range of sectors, with no sector specialism representing more than 21% of Group net fees. While Accountancy & Finance, Construction & Property and IT represent 50% of Group net fees, our expertise across 20 professional and skilled recruitment specialisms gives us opportunities to rapidly develop newer markets by replicating these long-established areas of expertise.
