Gary Whittred has spent nearly three decades working in the recruitment sector and describes launching his own business with The Recruit Venture Group as “the best decision I have made”.
“I have been in the recruitment industry for a long time, I have seen lots of good recruiters think about starting businesses but neither put those thoughts into words.
“Meeting The Recruit Venture Group was a huge factor in my decision to break out on my own.
“When you have got job stability the last thing you want is risk but The Recruit Venture Group’s model removes the risks involved in starting your own business.
“I didn’t have to put up any of my own money to launch Jark (KL) Ltd and it’s the best decision I have made.”
Jark (KL) Ltd are a Norfolk-based independent recruitment agency, based in King’s Lynn town centre.
The business specialises in providing a range of healthcare and industrial businesses with temporary and permanent staff across East Anglia.
Gary’s experienced combined with The Recruit Venture Group’s backing and support has proved to be a winning formula as Jark (KL) Ltd’s Managing Director explains.
“It’s a great partnership, the business is mine and I am in control and while The Recruit Venture Group don’t restrict me or tell me what to do they are always on hand to offer advice and guidance when I need it.
“The Central Services team at The Recruit Venture Group take care of the accounts, credit control, HR, IT and payroll for Jark (KL) Ltd.
“That leaves my team and I free to focus on delivering the best possible service to our candidates and clients, something which we pride ourselves on.
“Being a good recruiter is about making the most of your time and that’s what launching with The Recruit Venture Group has allowed me to do.
“I would definitely recommend their joint venture model to others recruiters.”
