When Chairman John Buckman first launched Recruit Ventures back in 2011, he believed that there were many recruiters who truly had the drive and ambition to launch their own business.
He created a unique business model based on his experiences which offered 100% funding and a complete back office support package with no financial set up fees, giving a recruiter everything they need to get their business of the ground and the freedom to grow.
Having himself launched Jark Recruitment (a joint venture), in 1996 and grown it to become a successful network of recruitment branches across the UK, John knew what he was doing when it came to launching recruitment businesses and felt he could impart his industry experience on those looking for a partner to help them achieve success.
In 2016, he took the decision to transfer over his branch-network of 22 recruitment business to become independently-owned recruitment companies. He empowered many of his existing branch managers to become business owners and this was to be the catalyst which unified Jark Holdings, the parent company of Jark Recruitment with Recruit Ventures Ltd to form The Recruit Venture Group in April 2017.
Over 50 recruiters so far have launched their own business with the support of The Recruit Venture Group, collaboratively achieving in excess of £131m by March 2017.
With plans to open between four and eight new recruitment businesses every year over the next 10 years, the company is on the right path to continue its journey to grow the largest joint venture recruitment operation within the UK.
