Guy Bevington spent over 10+ years successfully scaling technology recruitment teams for one of the UK’s fastest-growing agencies. It was time to take control of his agenda, finances and long-term wealth creation for his young family.
“Elsewhere I’d be doing the same making somebody else rich and lining their pockets. I was someone who very much had ‘golden handcuffs’ on in my previous role, and that kept me back for a lot longer than it should have done.”
WATCH THE INTERVIEW:
I wanted to focus on doing the customer-facing portion – that’s the part of the job I’m best at and passionate about, so I did want to partner with a firm that could give me the infrastructure to take that headache away.
I had a pot of money that I could use to start my own business, but I also wanted to de-risk a lot of it and get support from investors in order to draw a salary from the business as I ramped up.
RecruitHub were instrumental in that process, helping to build the business model and determine the right amount of investment to take, source the capital and manage the investment process.
I’ve been impressed with how pro-active RecruitHub has been in offering new revolutionary tech that can augment our service and increase our delivery.
The RecruitHub community: we network, and help fill each other’s roles – it’s a real value-add to have great recruiters on hand.
