Over two years ago, I took the plunge and started my own recruitment business.
There’s various reasons why I did it and it crosses many recruiters minds, some go for it, others don’t.
It’s obviously tough at times but along with the natural stresses and strains, there’s upsides:
- You don’t have anyone to answer to
- You can guide the direction of the business the way you want to
- Financially, the rewards are obvious, you’re not making someone else money
- There is an amount of freedom that employment just can’t offer
What about those issues you didn’t think of?
- You’re a good recruiter, but you spend a large part of the working week doing other things, accounts, IT issues etc…
- Difficult to switch off from your business as the buck stops with you – all the time, 24/7
- Payment problems. In your current job, you make a placement and you get your commission. In self-employment, you have to wait for payment before you can pay yourself
- Basic salary. You don’t get one unless your business is doing well. So no payslip guaranteed.
- And I haven’t even mentioned marketing, staffing problems, advertising, the list goes on.
Saying all that, it’s the best thing in my working life that I’ve ever done and I don’t regret it for a second.
So the question is, what’s stopping you entering the world of owning your own recruitment business?
If I said, I could offer you the chance to do this, and you get all of the below, would it be of interest?:
- Basic salary of up to £25,000 per annum
- Full support of a business partner
- Investment into marketing, IT, CRM, advertising
- Earn equity and certain milestones with eventually becoming an equal partner
So you’d be getting all the freedom of self-employment, the financial rewards, along with the security of a guaranteed salary and day-to-day chance to run things the way you’d want to!
