Setting Up and Building a Recruitment Business
Have you recently gone out on your own? Taken the plunge to not just build a successful desk, but to build your own successful recruitment business? Feeling somewhat overwhelmed? Rest assured you are not alone!
No doubt you have already mastered the recruitment part - or you wouldn't have taken the risk to set up shop! But how about all the other essential elements that keep a recruitment business humming?
Forecasting; budgeting; managing a P&L; marketing and building a pipeline as well as your brand; knowing when and who to hire; determining what complementary skill-sets you need in the business; knowing when time is right to work on the business vs in the business, etc. Don't panic! There is a light at the end of the tunnel.
This interactive Q&A style workshop is a perfect introduction for anyone who has recently opened their own agency. The perfect opportunity to ask anything to an industry veteran who has built agency businesses around the world as well as his own recruitment business that today has over 4,000 recruiters working with clients in 70+ counties.
Who should attend this workshop:
- Ideally for business owners
- A great refresher for even the most experienced people managers
