    How To Build A Recruitment Business That Works For YOU

    How To Build A Recruitment Business That Works For YOU

    Do you own an SME recruitment firm and feel dissatisfied because you seem to work hard for your business rather than your business working hard for you? If so, it’s probably down to 3 reasons: 

    You aren’t earning what you want; you’re not leading the lifestyle you and your family would like you to lead; or, most of all, you’re no closer to financial security now than when you started.

    In this episode Simon is joined by scalability coach, Mike Ames.

    Mike helps recruitment company owners who want their business to give them the income, lifestyle, job satisfaction and financial security they desire.

    During 45 minutes of honest reflection, Mike and Simon discuss a whole range of topics that will help any recruitment business owner build a business to suit them. Whether that's independent, micro or SME.

    Because the truth is, whilst most of us enter recruitment expecting to build a business through people scale, very few achieve it.

    Recruit. Make money. Exit.

    Hot topics covered in this session include:


    Building a business for the future
    Keeping it lean and mean
    Attracting talent and KEEPING it by building a culture for retention
    Why commission-driven remuneration is detrimental to your business
    What does lazy management look like?
    Why all recruitment agency owners should get a coach
    How to avoid making short-term decisions that affect long-term gains
    And just what is 'refrigerator recruitment'?

    This is a cracking episode with one of the industry's true protagonists.

    In this special off-the-cuff episode Gabi Preston-Phypers and Simon chat about everything from rec tech to removals.

    There’s soothsaying, myth-slaying and a whole lot of fanciful thinking.

    Candidate carnage, Boolean beauties and Disney dazzlers.

    Yes, this one’s a laugh.

    Gabi is co-founder of mobile robotics recruitment agency, Oscar Harrington, and co-founder of candidate sourcing tech, Tooled Up Raccoons.

    In this energetic episode Simon is joined by recruitment leader, Emma McNamara.

    A genuine industry protagonist, Emma founded one of the preeminent recruitment agency brands within the digital sector and became renowned for her no-nonsense approach.

    So, just what is the secret to becoming a great recruitment leader? 

    What does great leadership look like?

    Can leadership be taught?

    And what's charisma got to do with it?

    Whether you're a couple of decades down the recruitment track or just starting out on your journey, this episode lifts the lid on leadership and how the landscape has changed since the 90s.

    Culture

    Culture. What is it? How do we create it? And why does it matter?

    In this episode I’m joined by Miles Lloyd, a professional skills coach and business mentor with a track record of developing people and businesses through transformational change.

    A wide and varied career has seen him work with recruitment consultancies, not-for-profit organisations and the Premier League, with the latter involving professional skills mentoring and business leadership coaching for Elite Academy Managers and Heads of Coaching.

    Miles is also a business culture expert, and it’s this subject we’re getting stuck into today.
