If you’re not in the know, the statistics are out! 57% of the workforce plans to look for new jobs this year and niche staffing agencies are the key to attracting specific top talent and filling specific jobs in a time and space where there is a major talent war going on. What does this mean for you?
Well, outside of the fact that great staffing and recruiting profits are driven by niche specializations, the bigger question is, what can you do about this? If you’re a job seeker and love what you do and want to stay within your industry, but are looking to do something different, you’re in a great place. If you’re a recruiter looking to expand your career; you’re in a great place too! You see, niche’ recruiting and staffing is really taking over the industry. As a matter of fact, there are many large, general staffing agencies that are taking a loss (especially with the ACA in act) and they are revamping their strategy to offer niche recruiting and staffing services. Times are changing, companies need more and employees are looking for more. You have the opportunity to do something different and impact the employment industry at the same time. Here’s a list of niche staffing agency specializations that you can expect to see on the market real soon:
- Registered Nurses
- Caddy’s for the Golf Industry
- Certified PMP – Project Managers
- Data Scientists supporting the HR Industry
- Transportation for the Education industry in Boston, MA
- Teachers for Charter Schools
- IoT Staffing
- CyberSecurity / CISOs
- Digital Marketing
- Software Developers
- Mobile Developers
- Aerospace Engineers
- EMR/EHR Consultants
- Project Managers

- And more…
Yes! All of these niches have a focus and it is true that there are individuals out there starting and/or running staffing agencies who truly understand the old saying “Jack of all trades, master of none.” is not the way to go, and to really impact this industry and their pockets; a dedicated focus on niche staffing leads to higher margins and profitability for staffing and recruiting agencies.
Online legal staffing agencies, like Lawyer Exchange, can help pair lawyers with law firms, bringing the two together online for legal project work.
One other field in which new jobs are being created on a regular basis is cybersecurity. Thousands of professionals are now taking on a new cybersecurity career pathway every year due to increased demand. With more and more companies now becoming dependent on their IT systems to function, this, unfortunately, opens up their vulnerability to cybercrimes such as hacking and data breaches. It is because of this increased vulnerability that a cybersecurity skills gap has emerged, leading to the creation of new cybersecurity specific careers.
The examples given above are just a small example of what Staffingpreneurs out here are doing (yes, these are real people and real staffing agencies) and I would like to open your mind to the opportunity of starting your own recruiting and staffing agency business.
