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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
Paul Mizen, Managing Director of The Recruit Venture Group said:
“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.”
