Recruitment giant Kelly Services has seen revenue rise 6.5% year-on-year in the third quarter of 2017.

Q3 2017 financials, released yesterday, reveal revenue of $1.3bn (£990m), up 6.5%, or 5.3% in constant currency, on the same quarter last year, with Q3 operating earnings of $18.2m, down 3% on the previous year and earnings per share of $0.58, compared to $2.06 in Q3 2016.
