Meet the team at The Recruit Venture Group

John Buckman


Meet the man behind the model, the one with the drive and ambition to help.

When chairman John Buckman first launched Recruit Ventures back in 2011, he believed that there were many recruiters out there who truly had the drive and ambition to launch their own business.

He created a unique business model based on his experiences which offered full back office support, 100% financial backing and the security and freedom recruiters needed to concentrate on developing their businesses.

Having already established one of the UK’s largest recruitment firms, he had a network of branch managed recruitment businesses throughout the UK operating in many sectors and the experience of the industry to impart on those looking for a partner to help them achieve success.

Over 40 recruiters have since become joint venture operations and The Recruit Venture Group has grown from strength to strength, achieving in excess of £131m in turnover year ending March 2017 and on target for a projected £141m year end 2018.
