When launching your own business, it is essential to have a solid and achievable plan in place. Writing a business plan should form a key part of your due diligence, to help you decide whether the business opportunity is right for you and gives you the optimum chance to achieve your business and personal aspirations.
We are holding Business Planning and Preparation sessions throughout October dedicated to understand the business planning involved in launching a recruitment business.
Tony Jones, our Chief Operating Officer will be running a session on how to formulate a robust business plan, tailored for launching a recruitment business.
Tony has an extensive sales & marketing career spanning 35 years, within two of the UK’s largest asset finance businesses, culminating in operating at sales director level, then as running his own recruitment business for 18 years as a franchise owner. This experience gives him a unique insight into the challenges of building a successful mid-level search business. Starting in 1994 as a single person business, Tony’s business, at its peak, employed 30 staff and was around £3 million in revenues per annum. Today he brings to Antal extensive sales management experience gained in corporate life, combined with first-hand experience of building his own recruitment franchise.
In this session Tony will provide practical advice on the three business planning elements essential for the launch of your recruitment business, regardless whether you plan small/home based operation, or plan to scale this into a business that will have wealth value.
Please let us know if you would like to register for one of our business planning sessions.
