Our Portfolio of Recruitment Business Leaders

Our Global Partnership Approach.


At Recruitment Entrepreneur, we’re not looking for managers; we’re looking for true partners and leaders. By investing in the business together, we share the highs (and the inevitable lows) of building something of value.

Whether you’re starting out from scratch or scaling an existing business, Recruitment Entrepreneur’s resources and infrastructure gives you the platform you need to compete with the best in the market from day one.

Growing a recruitment business is not just about billing. It’s about talent attraction and retention, scale, internationalisation, finance and banking, legal issues and so much more. Leveraging our considerable expertise and know-how for these elements enables you to focus on what you’re good at and to realise your business vision.

Turnaround & Performance Management

The journey to success does not always run smoothly, markets can be unpredictable, and new hires don’t always work out as planned. This is why Recruitment Entrepreneur have an experienced senior management team in place to provide support and get things back on track.

Read our full case study of EliteCyber, one of our portfolio businesses that overspent resulting in cumulative losses of –£225k. We worked with them through a period of change, to cut costs and focus on getting back to basics, resulting in a swift recovery and an upturn of £500k.
