Pros & Cons of running your own recruitment business!

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!
