2019 saw five new start up stars launched by The Recruit Venture Group
Quite a year.
If more evidence was needed that The Recruit Venture Group’s joint venture business model is the ideal route for recruitment start ups, then 2019 would provide it.
Five new recruitment businesses were launched with the backing of The Recruit Venture Group during the last twelve months.
Staff 365 had opened open their doors for business in the previous December. By January they were up and running in Rotheram. Tom Brooke had twelve years experience under his belt and had regularly exceeded targets set for him. It was time to do it his way. He launched Staff 365 as a joint venture with The Recruit Venture Group. He said: “It was a big decision. I had a good job and was earning good money but giving all that up to run my own business was definitely the right decision”. He has not looked back for a moment.
In June, Scott Treacher launched Total Support Recruitment with total support and backing from The Recruit Venture Group. The Rugby based agency specialising in the aviation, commercial and driving sectors was ready to service clients across the uk from day one. Scott has firm views on how he made it happen. “I always had a good feeling about launching with The Recruit Venture Group and it’s turned out really well,” he said. “The support on offer is second to none; everything you need to launch and grow a successful recruitment agency is available. Having that support behind you allows you and your team to hit the ground running and start building revenues from day one”.
Just a couple of months later, in August 2019, Samantha Hunter launched
S H Recruitment. Based in Leamington Spa her mission was to find the best local talent for automotive and engineering companies across the West Midlands. Samantha had worked in the recruitment sector for five years and setting up her own business with backing and support from The Recruit Venture Group was easier than she ever thought possible. “I couldn’t believe how quickly everything came together,” she said. “You have got a team of experts creating your business for you. They keep you informed every step of the way”.
October was a busy month with two new businesses starting up. Friends and business partners Chris Steele and Ben Yale launched Staffing Lab in Telford. With a combined 22 years’ experience in recruitment between them, the pair wanted to start fully benefiting from the money they were making for their bosses. From the first confidential, no-obligation contact with The Recruit Venture Group, their journey to business and career freedom took just months.“The Recruit Venture Group didn’t just make launching our recruitment business simple – they have also given us a platform for rapid growth,” said Ben.
Then, in the same month, came first 2 education. For Katie Leng starting her own enterprise with The Recruit Venture Group was all about getting the career freedom she’d always wanted. Working out of Watford she had a clear strategy for her own business. She wanted to provide the education sector with supply teachers and permanent teaching staff in the Hertfordshire and London areas.
“I toyed with the idea of launching the business by myself,” says Katie. “But with The Recruit Venture Group, you are given all the tools you need to succeed. You have the financial backing and you have that fantastic back office support behind you. My focus is my strength – recruiting – and I’m not getting distracted by admin or financial pressure. I wouldn’t have had that advantage just on my own”.
There are several things that all of the start ups agree on. There’s the freedom to earn without limits, the freedom to truly work flexibly, and the freedom that comes with being in control. They all feel that they are building their dream and not working to support someone else’s.
For all of the five, as well as the many others already established, The Recruit Venture Group is providing ongoing business and mentoring support. It’s little wonder that the organisation is now the largest provider of funds and backing for start up recruitment businesses. As Katie Leng said recently, “I think if you are confident in your abilities, if you want to build and drive something forward, then I would say you should go for it. With The Recruit Venture Group, you have everything you need to make it happen and the rewards are unbelievable.”
