Despite the credit crunch, some online recruitment agencies are still finding that their services are in demand, it has been reported.

According to Onrec.com, new recently published figures show that e-recruitment may still be an effective way for job seekers looking to enter the credit and risk industries to find employment.

Some agencies specialising in these sectors have seen significant growth, with both the number of jobs advertised on their sites and their client bases increasing.

Brett Marlow, director of Jobsincredit.com, said that the economic downturn in the UK was actually helping employment in these industries as "many companies are actively recruiting credit control professionals to ensure that they manage their debtors and cash flow".

He also claims that although job seekers are being affected by the credit crunch, it may not be as bad as the media portrays.

ClickAJob Marketing Manager Anders Jensen puts the emphasis on quality more than numbers.

"All companies are watching their bottom line," he says.

"Beyond considering redundancies, they're looking at staff in place as well - are they the best available, or is it time to up their game?"

"Now more than ever, employers want best value for money from their employees. If new applicants can provide it, they're the ones they invest in - and where recruitment demand is really coming from," he says.

The Recruitment and Employment Confederation recently claimed that for job seekers struggling to find work, recruitment agencies can provide extra help and support.

Surely online recruitment is the way forward in job hunting around the world? If online DVD rental deals are putting all of the DVD rental shops out of business and online shopping is vastly reducing what regular shops make then online everything is the way forward. Recruitment in many ways seems better set for the internet than just about anything else. How easy it is to upload a CV and apply for a job online. I'm glad this side of the recruitment industry is thriving.
