Recruit Venture Henry James

Launching a sister company takes time and resources

Following the success of Pebble People, Harry Bowden’s original joint venture with The Recruit Venture Group, Harry has since launched Henry James Executive Recruitment as a subsidiary business with The Recruit Venture Group.

Henry James, is based in Northampton, and is dedicated to executive recruitment across the UK.

Harry took the decision to launch Henry James after realising that a different approach and process is required when it comes to recruiting for and making senior appointments.

He said: “We started getting a lot of high level and senior work, which was very different to other parts of the business.

“We had to invest, of course we did, you can do things like this on the cheap but you aren’t giving the business every chance of success.

“It needed a different approach to ensure we were delivering for our clients and I felt the best way to do that was to give our executive team their own identity.

“Launching as Henry James also allowed us to grow the executive side of our business without taking away from Pebble People’s other work in different sectors.”

Harry’s decision to launch Henry James needed to be backed up with investment from The Recruit Venture Group, he was able to add to his headcount and invest in the marketing and branding of his new venture.

Launching a sister company properly takes time and resources but it gives that company the best possible chance of success, as Harry knows.

“We had to invest, of course we did, you can do things like this on the cheap but you aren’t giving the business every chance of success.

“Because I had The Recruit Venture Group’s support I was able to launch Henry James properly which has allowed the business to grow to where it is today.”
