We are thrilled to announce that we were recently named this year’s winner of Best Recruitment Start-Up Investment Firm by Global 100. It is a credit to our commitment to make a positive impact on the recruitment industry, as well as to the 33 talented founders in whom we have invested to date.
Our goal is to empower ambitious entrepreneurs within the recruitment industry to achieve their full potential and be able to compete with the best in market from day one. As well as funding, we cover all back-office functions, from marketing and legal to finance. Our senior management teams’ extensive industry experience also positions them well to consult and advise on strategies such as talent attraction and internationalisation.
On the award win, CEO of Recruitment Entrepreneur Abid Hamid commented, “This award is a celebration of all our hard work over the last six years, but it is especially meaningful to win in what has been such an unprecedented and difficult year. We are proud to have built a strong portfolio of businesses and to have the infrastructure and resources required to fully support them. We are unique in our partnership model and offering – this award demonstrates the success of what we do and the stellar reputation that we’ve built. A huge thanks to everyone in the Recruitment Entrepreneur team and wider portfolio for their achievements this year.”
Despite its challenges, 2020 has seen Recruitment Entrepreneur launch three new businesses - Bila Group, Baldwin Boyes and Walter James Solutions - and hire two Investment Directors to drive new investments and expand its portfolio further.
James Caan CBE, Chairman of Recruitment Entrepreneur, added, “It’s great to see Recruitment Entrepreneur continually recognised to be providing the market with a truly exceptional service. Our sustained growth this year is testament to the team’s remarkable level of business acumen and tenacity. I look forward to seeing what the remainder of 2020 and the coming year hold for the group.”
