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!

Today’s #worldbookday, a fantastic day to celebrate the books we love and that inspire us!

From the stories that inspired us as children, those which some of our favourite films come from to thrillers and business literature that keep our brains moving as adults - books are the gateway to a world of imagination 🌍 📕
