I started 2020, much like I’m sure you did: With the trademark optimism of a new year beginning, with new challenges and new targets to hit. Nothing would stand in my way.
Unfortunately, 2020 was, well, 2020. The world changed, and with it, our expectations of work and life in general. If anything, 2020 helped all of us realise, with a fresh perspective, what really matters to us. With that, and I’m sure part of the reason you’re reading this book, comes a desire to realign your reality to your, now clarified, personal objectives.
There are many reasons to start a recruitment business, including the freedom of being in charge, the chance to be creative and deal with a wide variety of tasks where no day is the same, realising your dream and doing something that you are genuinely interested in, not to mention the financial rewards.
However, the decision to set up a company and be your own boss is a huge step and as such, requires a lot of thought. Becoming an entrepreneur is a life changing experience and it isn’t for everyone. It will require determination, the ability to plan ahead, resilience and focus, as well comprehensive research into your business idea, the marketplace and your financial options.
All businesses start with great intentions and hope but, in reality, more than half of all businesses will not make it beyond a couple of years.
SSG have launched almost 500 recruitment businesses since we started in 2003. Over the years, the needs of our clients have evolved, as the demands of the industry has changed, and we’ve constantly added and developed our services to match those requirements.
When you’re an SSG client, our team is your team, our expertise is your expertise, our successes are your successes.
This guide intends to help you appreciate some of the elements involved, from forming your company to the next steps in setting up and becoming established, providing brief overviews of areas such as finance, marketing and creating a business plan.
We hope you find it useful.
