Recruitment Entrepreneur - open for entries
by Startacus Admin
James Caan, leading entrepreneur and ex Dragon is on the lookout once more for self starters in the recruitment sector who want to grow or develop their recruitment businesses.
Since setting up his Venture Capital fund Recruitment Entrepreneur, James has invested in seven startups within the sector.
The investment isn’t purely financial though - successful startups also receive intensive support and mentoring on all aspects of their business to help ensure they truly achieve their goals.
What’s important to remember is that this is no ordinary VC fund - it’s in a niche and extremely competitive sector but it’s led by a man who is truly an expert in the field. For evidence of his success at starting and growing recruitment businesses, you need look no further than his first recruitment business, Alexander Mann Solutions which sold for £260 million in 2013. Impressive wouldn’t you agree!
So who can apply?
If you’re a recruitment professional who has started your own recruitment business or even if you just have an idea for one, you’re eligible to apply. You’ll also need to have at least 3 years’ experience in the sector and have real entrepreneurial drive, a strong work ethic and a genuine passion to succeed. Above all, you’ll need to be committed to creating a market leading business - not just a lifestyle business.
