Recruiter PageGroup reports rise in Q3 gross profit

Oct 11 (Reuters) - Recruitment firm PageGroup Plc reported an 11.8 percent rise in third-quarter gross profit on Wednesday on growth across all its regions except Britain and said it remained on course to meet full-year profit expectations.

The British company, which mainly finds candidates to fill permanent positions, said group gross profit rose to 177.3 million pounds ($234 million) in the three months to Sept. 30, up from 158.6 million pounds a year earlier.

Analysts on average expect it to achieve an operating profit of 113 million pounds for the year to Dec. 31, according to a company-compiled consensus.
