There is nothing quite like the thrill that comes with going it alone in business. Knowing that each and every decision you make will have an impact on your business brings an extraordinary amount of pressure, but this is more than offset by the rush of being in control of your own destiny.
Realising the dream
Each and every year, thousands of recruiters dream of setting up their own agency but never actually manage to fulfil their destiny – maybe because they feel like there are so many barriers in the way of them making the move to work for themselves
You may well be one of those recruiters with a dream – you possess the expert industry knowledge, the skill, determination, passion and drive that are required to go it alone, but something is holding you back from taking that all-important breakaway step. Maybe you’ve realised that there is much more to running a successful recruitment company than simply being able to source and place suitable candidates?
You’d be right. Running your own recruitment business is different to the day to day activities of an employed recruiter, working within another organisation.
The majority of recruiters are great at selling, but what most new recruitment start-ups don’t appreciate is that they are now running their own business and if they select the wrong supplier, they will lose their revenue generating time to managing things like;
- Debt management
- Cash flow management
- Legal cases for non-paying debtors
- VAT cash flow and payments
- PAYE legislation and changes
- Checking Client contracts for any high risk clauses, like the infamous “pay when paid” type clause that will affect their cash flow and put them at risk
- Managing your internal staff
It is these extra factors which are more than likely putting off talented individuals from seriously considering starting their own recruitment agency.
They are time consuming, they stop you from concentrating on winning new business, and let’s face it, are not very exciting, but they are an essential element of running a successful recruitment agency.
