We are of course in a transitionary period right now and as restrictions slowly begin to ease there has been too a general rise in new vacancies across recruitment sectors. Many markets are the busiest, or at least most optimistic that they’ve been in well over a year.
This is expected only to increase as we move further towards normality and a potential boom time for recruitment during the latter part of the year.
One of the most notable trends within recruitment itself over the last 6 months has seen high performing consultants moving away from the traditional agency model. Many excellent recruiters have started their own companies either out of necessity as many companies laid off staff or closed offices across the country, or out of choice realising through spending an extended period of time that running their own desk autonomously whilst working from home is 90% of the work of running your own company (for only a fraction of the reward).
Why work for someone else?
Recruitment start-ups are flourishing, and there are a few reasons for that. We’re not going to talk about the benefits – we’ve done that already.
Here are some of the main reasons why right now may be the best opportunity you’ll ever have to start your own recruitment business:
Most recruiters starting out on their own can expect their first revenue by month 2-3 and be back up to regular earnings or better within 6 months. If you’re like the majority of people at the moment, then you will have been spending less than normal during the various lockdowns and have probably the most back up capital you’ve had in a long time. Just another reason why taking your opportunity now to start your own business may be the best decision you’ll ever make!
So, if you’ve ever considered seriously the potential of starting your own recruitment business, you may never get a better opportunity than now to grab the reins.
Is it time you joined the recruitment revolution?
