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!
