Recruitment - Business Partner

Reference No: 2727022633

The recruitment and search industry has been hit very hard by COVID and the resulting downturn in the economy. As a result there are a number of very high quality consultants and senior professionals who have been made redundant. Whenever they speak to me they always assure me that their clients and candidates are loyal and that they could add significantly to Candidate Connect and to what we are building. So here is my offer, if you are prepared to back yourself:1. We will provide office space, the necessary IT, access to database, operational support, and the chance to work under our brand. Of course if you would like to work from home in the current environment, that is fine.2. We will share any fee that you generate 50/50 - no hidden costs, no 'management fee'. This will be paid at the end of the same month in which the client pays. 3. You can focus on what you are great at, selling recruitment and delivering exceptional service (client-centric) to your clients and our clients.4. This offer also applies to very well networked senior candidates; bring your network and try our industry. 5. There will be a few guidelines in keeping with the brand ethos – 2 of these being honesty and integrity (our core values), and having these in abundance is essential. If this is of interest and you wish to be your own boss, with the support of a great brand let me know and we can discuss this further.
