Is it the Right Time to Start Your Own Recruitment Agency?

We may be in a post-recession economy, or things might be slowing down a bit. It depends on who you listen to. What is plain though is that more and more businesses are gearing up for an upturn, even if they’re exercising some caution.

What we’re seeing is that, in a reportedly buoyant labour market, employers are recruiting but, high quality candidates aside, they’re looking for two things.

Firstly they want expert and cost effective service and advice. Recruitment can be expensive and short route to finding people, often at short notice, is essential.

Secondly, they want a recruitment provider who knows their area and has real local knowledge.

If you’re the sort of recruitment professional who is considering starting up on your own you’ve probably never been better placed to do it. You’ll have the experience, and you’ll want to set up shop on your own patch, where you can contain costs because you live there. More importantly you’ll know the local commercial scene and have the right contacts.

The Recruit Ventures business model will give you the branding, backing and back-up systems to start your own recruitment business with a firm financial footing, and without the need to borrow from the bank or plunder your savings – if you have any!

‘We recognise the entrepreneurial spirit that characterises many recruitment professionals' - Recruit Ventures Managing Director, David Simons

Absolutely not a franchise, but a joint venture, this is an exciting opportunity that has seen a string of successful start-ups already operating across the UK. What’s emerging in the feedback from already up and running joint venture partners who’ve launched businesses with Recruit Ventures backing is that it’s the systems and software that are vital.

‘It’s been fascinating. We know that firm financial backing, back-up and creative input with branding are the main things that start-ups need. It gives them the freedom and peace of mind to concentrate on growing their businesses. But, time and again we’re finding that it’s the back-up that comes to the fore. As a Recruit Ventures start-up you get the full package of systems that means you can handle business as soon as you open your doors’, says David Simons.

It’s the excitement of doing it for yourself, with the security of an income. There’s never been a better time, and you’re already in the right place. Talk to us.
