Franchise Spotlight: Recruitment
Franchising offers a robust business model in the competitive recruitment sector.
Recruitment companies help other organizations to find staff - either in assisting companies who are promoting internal staff, or recruiting for new temporary or permanent positions. With employers and employees now able to use social media, search engines and dedicated websites to look for employment opportunities, recruitment is not an easy market to enter alone.
A franchise will offer a recognised brand name and key industry links for those who want to enter, or advance, in the recruitment sector. In 2019 the staffing and recruitment market size was valued at more than $150billion (Statista), making this a lucrative sector in which to work.
Companies such as Robocore Recruitment and Novi Global offer franchisees the opportunity to work from home with training in a proven business model. Whether you are interested in working for yourself or scaling up your business and employing others, franchising is a quick way to make important contacts in this huge market.
Recruitment Industry Analysis
Recruitment experience is useful but not critical for many of the franchises available. Rather, experience in sales, business management and excellent people skills will be important. As a franchisee you will be entering a fast-paced, highly competitive market where you will need to be confident adapting to new systems and changes.
For those who work well under pressure, delivering the perfect candidate in a given time frame can be exciting and rewarding, but this pressurized environment isn’t for everyone. Franchisees will need excellent organizational skills and be able to work efficiently to deadlines. In such a competitive industry, there is no doubt that the marketing tools of a recognized brand and the business contacts a franchise offers will be invaluable. For franchisees with a passion for recruitment, this is a lucrative sector to enter.
