This recruitment business was established in 2000 and has been trading successfully since then. Specialising in the building and construction industry, the business offers permanent and temporary recruitment services for housing developers, construction companies, main contractors to name a few. They also provide a bespoke technical support service within the same industry. The business has established a vast client database and a candidate database of in excess of 3000. The business offers a unique approach to recruitment in this industry, with a competitive pricing structure and a personable, friendly and confidential service for both clients and candidates.
Although currently operated from Essex, this is a home-based business and as such could be relocated worldwide.
REASON FOR SALE
The business is only being offered for sale due to the impending retirement of the managing director who is willing to offer consultancy during the transition to ensure a smooth handover and offer continuity.
BUSINESS INFORMATION & FUTURE SCOPE
The business utilises a number of online resources to trade successfully. These include a fully managed, comprehensive business website along with online advertising via Reed and Indeed. Use of social media channels including Facebook, Twitter and Linked In could significantly enhance the business as these are not currently utilised. There is also plenty of scope for expansion for the new owner, maybe with the addition of one or two new consultants, to dedicate more time contacting existing clients and generating new ones. All current online channels in use will be including in this business sale along with all branding and both the employer database and candidate database.
The business is currently operating with only the managing director and his wife in owner-operator roles and working on a very limited part-time basis. Additional consultants and more time spent would certainly allow the business to rapidly expand significantly.
The business has grown since inception in 2000, generating a turnover of £265,553 in the 2015 accounts and even this was achieved working on a part-time basis. The turnover in 2017 was £108,600 and this is only lower due to the very limited working hours of the current owners. Full financial details are available for viewing.
Working hours are entirely flexible as this a home-based business. The current owners work negligible hours at present to achieve the current level of turnover and profit.
This is a fantastic opportunity to acquire an established recruitment consultancy. The business has grown and maintained a great reputation since inception eighteen years ago and has a vast candidate and client database. This business is entirely relocatable and has fantastic potential for future growth and would be ideal for someone looking to push the business forward and build on the current foundations.
