Top 10 Benefits of Having Your Own Recruitment Business

By June 7, 2023July 4th, 2023No Comments

Ready for something new? It takes nerve to leap into the unknown and launch your own recruitment consultancy – but the rewards can be huge.

By joining the Quantum Connect international network of independent recruitment consultants, you get the financial, practical and moral support you need to turn your bright business idea into a real-life success. 

So what are the benefits of having your own recruitment business? Here are our top 10.

  1. Realise your entrepreneurial dreams.

Do you want to create a business that’s truly yours? Many of us harbour a desire to start something new, put our hearts and souls into it, and nurture it as it grows. You can mitigate the risks by making sure you’ve got a supportive network around you. 

  1. Make a career switch.

If you’re already a recruitment consultant, then you know what to expect. But if you come from a sales, PR or HR background, you might have been eyeing up a sideways move while lacking the know-how to go about it. At Quantum, we’ve got the expertise to guide ambitious, resilient, diligent and brave professionals with a range of skill sets.

  1. Be your own boss. 

Yes, we all like the sound of that – but the reality can entail scrabbling around in vain for clients while seeing your debts mount up. It’s hard to go it alone, especially if you’re used to having a team around you. Do your research and get support when you need it, and you could soon be setting your own hours and goals. 

  1. Keep more of what you bill.

If you work for an agency, you probably wave goodbye to 75% or more of what you take in. How about switching that around so you keep most of your billings, rewarding yourself for your hard work?

  1. Get the work-life balance you need.

If your day job is leaving you with no evening or weekend time, it could be the impetus you need to go independent. Of course, starting a new business can mean you’re always-on, so let us take some of the strain. By using our software, and drawing on our in-house support for communications, HR and PR, you can focus on what you do best – recruitment! What’s more, you can do it in the hours that fit in around your family or lifestyle. 

  1. See a return on your investment.

People with an entrepreneurial spirit love nothing more than watching their investment pay huge dividends. But if you haven’t got any capital to invest, it’s hard to get started.

We offer a six-month interest-free loan to help you get your consultancy up and running. 

  1. Seize new opportunities thanks to the explosion of start-ups.

COVID-19 has caused a sea change in the business landscape. Many old businesses are folding, while new ones are springing up. It’s an exciting time to be in the recruitment game – and your skills are needed more than ever. You’ll meet all sorts of entrepreneurs, and learn about new developments in the business world.

  1. Gain freedom of choice. 

Think of all those times your boss has ignored your suggestions – or stolen your ideas without acknowledgement!  Joining Quantum doesn’t mean giving up your independence: how you choose to develop your business is always up to you. But we’re in the background, offering support. It’s deeply rewarding to make your own decisions and see your business progress.

  1. Develop your own strategy. 

There’s nothing quite like the buzz you get from steering your own ship! But to make sure you don’t sink, Quantum offers guidance in developing your business and strategy. We’ve got experienced leaders on board, and offer business mentoring tailored to your needs. You’ll quickly acquire those leadership skills for yourself, which will stand you in good stead in the world of business. 

  1. Forge your own customer relationships. 

Recruitment is all about the human touch. Striking your first deals can be tough, so use our established brand as the springboard for your own business, and tap into our links with companies around the world to help you grow. Soon, you’ll have built up your own client base, and will be helping their brands flourish too.
