With over ten years’ recruitment experience under his belt, Ian Leaf was an experienced high performing recruiter when he decided to launch Jark (Huddersfield) Ltd in April 2017.
Ian excelled within recruitment and had often thought about setting up on his own, but he just didn’t know where to start.
However, when The Recruit Venture Group gave Ian the opportunity to launch his own agency and still spend his time focusing on recruitment he did not hesitate to make his move.
He said: “The chance to launch a business but still be able to focus on what you do best doesn’t come around very often.
“With The Recruit Venture Group behind me, I have been able to launch a business and focus on driving that business forward by doing exactly what I do best… recruitment!
“Accounts, credit control, HR, IT and payroll teams are all in place at The Recruit Venture Group to take care of the back office side of my business leaving me free to spend my time on what I know I can do.”
Ian’s business, Jark (Huddersfield) Ltd specialise in serving West Yorkshire’s Construction and Industrial sectors and under Ian’s leadership the business has gone from strength to strength.
The success of Ian’s business is down to a combination of hard work, dedication and support which is second to done.
“When it is your own business you are empowered to go that extra mile and work that little bit harder than when you are working for someone else.
“I have got a great team in my business and together with the support of The Recruit Venture Group we have been able to hit the ground running.
“While it’s a cliché, launching my own business has really changed my life.
“I am now in control of my earnings and my future.
“I wish I had made the move years ago and would recommend The Recruit Venture Group to any recruiter looking to take back control of their career.”
