The culture within Recruitment Entrepreneur is focused around both wealth creation and building a strong income stream, most entrepreneurs never really get the opportunity to build real value in their businesses, our platform and philosophy are based around James Caan CBEs personal experience and journey as an entrepreneur.
James is one of the few entrepreneurs in the UK who’s not sold one company, but eight. Each of the recruitment businesses he's sold has been able to achieve a premium value, based on his track record and reputation for building world-class businesses. As part of the Recruitment Entrepreneur portfolio, partners we invest in have the advantage of leveraging all the knowledge, experience, and expertise from James, the senior management team, and the wider group portfolio founders to support them on their journey of wealth creation.
At the point of realisation and exit of the last group of businesses James sold, they had a combined GP of £50m and EBIT of £11.4m. Due to the scale, size, diversity, geographical spread, and quality of earnings we were able to achieve a multiple of 8.6x earnings. Our current strategy in Recruitment Entrepreneur is to replicate the same success we achieved here.
The ultimate objective of partnering with Recruitment Entrepreneur is to build a successful business and achieve a profitable exit.
