Business Description

Business Profile

This business is a recruitment technology platform that provides all the tools a freelance recruiter needs to work remotely from one easy to use dashboard. Following initial development expenditure of over £13.2m plus a further £2m, the platform now provides a CRM and talent pool of 4.2m CV’s.


It is either the ideal bolt-on technology platform for a large recruitment company looking to take on more roles from new and existing clients and increasing fee revenues without growing their fixed overheads.


Alternatively the platform could be used by an existing software company to enter the lucrative recruitment market or even as a platform for this and other industries such as estate agency.


It only requires a feed of job roles and freelance recruiters to simply make the placements.


The company was founded some 5 years ago and over £15m has been spent on creating the platform and its online presence.


Before Covid it had recruited some 51 freelance recruitment consultants who paid the platform a monthly fee and a percentage share of the placement fee.


The software is proven and is now ready for a new owner to grow its market share and attract additional consultants.


At a time when more and more professionals are wanting to work from home and be self-employed this Platform allows them to do just that. Each consultant has access to millions of CVs and a professional web-based service.


The platform attracts employers looking for staff that want more than just a Jobs Board and want a professional and personal service from a seasoned professional recruiter who will qualify and sort the candidates and produce a shortlist of the most suitable for a fraction of the cost of a traditional recruitment agency.


Each consultant will have extensive knowledge and well established links with a strong network and contacts in the business community that give them the opportunity of working with employer groups. The Platform enables an individual self-employed consultant to conduct business as if they were part of a multi-national organisation.


Meanwhile the Platform allows an existing recruitment agency to grow exponentially at a fraction of the cost of employing office based staff.


Independence is a key contributing factor to the continued success of the business as this allows the flexibility to provide focus, speed and real commitment to client’s needs. Each consultant ensures that each individual candidate and client receives the same high degree of customer care.


The consultants aim to match candidates’ career aspirations to rewarding job positions, and by investing time and using an exhaustive pre-selective service they make sure only candidates that are well qualified and suited to each vacancy are put forward. 


Recruitment is very much a 'people' business, providing advice and practical support to clients and this Platform makes the consultant an expert in good all round matching while ensuring clients receive a friendly, professional and courteous experience.



Over £15m has been spent on developing a state of the art, multi-user software platform.  The business has excellent back office administrative systems and processes that ensure the business is run efficiently and effectively. It also utilises Sage accounting and payroll software.


The business also has an informative interactive website for candidates and clients alike, while attracting suitable consultants to join the platform.
