The Recruiting Brainfood Podcast

Brainfood Live On Air - Ep116 - Starting & Scaling A Successful Recruitment Business

July 17, 2021


It has never been easier to start a recruitment business - in the networked era, anyone with some industry knowledge, decent number of connections and maybe a few early customers already onboard, can leave their employer, set up and start trading.

But starting is not the same as succeeding; and succeeding is not the same as scaling. What can we learn from recruitment entrepreneurs who have taken the plunge and grown their businesses to success?

That is the topic of this episode of Brainfood Live On Air

- What's the biggest challenge for recruitment entrepreneurs?
- What is the most important piece to advice you would give to yourself if you could do it again?
- What mistakes did you make when you first started?
- What is the biggest risk you took in your business?
- What will cause your business to fail?
- How to did you finance your business?
- How does Covid-19 impact the future of starting up in recruitment?

All this and more as we talk to the folks who have done it, and are planning to do it.


We’re with  Katrina Hutchinson-O’Neill, MD (Join Talent), James Osborne, Founder (The Recruitment Network), Adam Gordon, CEO (Candidate-ID)  & Alex van Klaveren, CEO (KANDIDATE)
