Creating a disruptor: How you could build recruitment’s own Uber

Amazon, Uber, Airbnb, Netflix, Deliveroo.

They’re all famous examples of disruptors and we all wish we had bought shares in them a long time ago.

But is recruitment also now ripe for a bit of disruption? A new innovative start-up that completely changes the face of the industry?

One thing is for sure, the world of work is changing. Whether it is technological advances like AI, machine learning and automation, or wider social and economic changes like people working later in life, the gig economy and flexible working, things are shifting quickly.

And with change comes opportunity. Is your recruitment agency futureproofed? Are they vulnerable to disruption?

And what can you, as a recruitment employee, do about it?

Many recruiters want to take control and start a business. At The Recruit Venture Group, we work with recruitment professionals who want to do things differently. Those who spot opportunities in the market where other agencies (even their own) are failing to deliver. We back entrepreneurial and innovative people who have the drive and passion to make their start-up a success.



Here’s how The Recruit Venture Group helps recruiters build new disruptive enterprises.

  1. Financial backing

Start-ups need the cash to bring ideas to fruition. At The Recruit Venture Group, we fund the new business 100% – there is no need to draw on a penny of your savings or assets. We give you the backing, risk free, to meet the objectives of your business plan. And as you make breakthroughs in the market, we can offer more finance to rapidly scale your business.

  1. Expert Mentoring

Every new business will encounter challenges, but mentoring is often hard, or expensive, to find. But recruiters launching a business with us have access to advice and support from The Recruit Venture Group’s senior team, when they need it. With decades of experience combined, across a range of business disciplines, our experts help you clear any roadblocks in the way of success.

  1. Outstanding back-office support

Without the right business infrastructure in place, your idea for a disruptive business is just that – an idea. We help set up your business including your office, funding the staff you need and building your website. We then provide an industry-leading, tailored and comprehensive back office function. Our accounts, payroll, credit control, HR, IT, legal and marketing support are all geared to the needs of a growing recruitment business.

You are then left to hit the ground running and make it happen.

“I think any new business should be looking at shaking up the market because that’s how you set yourself apart from the competition. The recruiters we have supported to launch their own businesses have made waves in their areas, building enterprises worth millions and transforming their earnings and wealth.

“We encourage bold, innovative recruitment approaches. We’ve supported businesses using social media to recruit in new, pioneering ways, businesses using training to tackle skills shortages, and businesses offering services which deliver for clients in new ways.

“We’ve already helped 60 recruiters to build outstanding enterprises. In 2020 we will be backing more ‘disruptors’ to create recruitment agencies where growth really has no limits.”


The KEY lesson recruiters should learn from General Election 2019

Is there anything about the current General Election campaign, and the state of politics in general, that can help recruiters be better at their jobs?

It’s hard to put your finger on much.

But one there’s one common thing among political parties of all colours. They are promising the earth.

Whether it’s free broadband, magically finding billions for the NHS and police, a ‘green revolution’ or solving Brexit – they can do it all.

Do we believe that?

Because it is one thing to promise, it is another thing to deliver. And when you fail to deliver, you make people very upset.

Recruiters are often tempted to over-promise in the hope of securing more business. But they know it will come back to bite them eventually. Many a politician has suffered the same fate, and may well do again after the public has its say on December 12.

But too often, recruitment professionals don’t have the freedom to offer the type of service they want. They want to go the extra mile, but sometimes wonder if the rewards are worth it, or are pressured to cut corners. They want to impress clients and candidates, but their agency just isn’t geared up or resourced to offer that exceptional service.

Above all, good recruiters don’t want to over-promise and under-deliver. They don’t want to fall into the politician’s trap.

The Recruit Venture Group was set up precisely to give those driven, talented recruiters the chance to break free of all limitations and start their own businesses.

That includes the freedom to shape the brand, its ethos, and develop the approach to recruitment they always wanted to, but never could as employees.

We have supported 60 recruiters to start their own agencies, serving a huge range of sectors. Under their leadership, they are building phenomenal businesses by delivering the recruitment service they always knew would work if only they had the chance.

Their earnings have multiplied, and they are building businesses worth millions, offering them a financial future they could only have dreamt of.

And the rewarding thing is, it is all down to their vision and hard work.

The Recruit Venture Group offers 100% of the finance needed for launch. You do not need to rely on a penny of your savings or assets.

We then help you get your business off the ground, establishing it legally, with office premises, a website and any staff you need. Alongside this we offer a comprehensive back office solution for the lifetime of the business, including payroll, credit control, accounts, IT, HR, marketing, and more.

Your focus is on recruitment.

And The Recruit Venture Group doesn’t over-promise either. In fact, we encourage you to talk to some of the 60 people who have already taken this step with us and hear how their lives have been transformed.
