SSG offers just as much support helping to launch recruitment businesses as it does helping them grow over the course of five to 10 years.

Our Solutions

Unlike the backend support providers on the market, SSG takes a unique approach to supporting your recruitment business. Instead of offering a cookie-cutter approach, we take the time to understand your business and goals to tailor our solution to your needs.

By offering multiple tiers, there is a solution for everyone. Each solution provides you with all the benefits of running a business without the natural risks of entrepreneurship.

To make the transition from employee to a business owner as seamless as possible, we take on the responsibility of running the business for you. That means you can focus on billing and growing your recruitment team while SSG focuses on accounting, marketing, operations and legal tasks.

We've got almost 20 years experience in launching recruitment businesses and nurturing them through growth through their partnership with SSG. Every journey begins with a business plan, and you can download our beginners guide by completing the form.

100% ownership options

SSG’s 100% ownership options consist of two different programmes - our Solo Programme and our Grow Programme. Both are great options for recruiters looking to start their own business while retaining 100% ownership.

Both plans are similar, but they do have their own unique benefits. For example, our Solo Programme allows recruiters to launch a business without staff, which means the recruiter can focus on billing while SSG takes care of the rest.

On the other hand, our Grow programme offers the same flexibility but is better suited for a recruiter or pair of recruiters who want to be a little more hands-on with the business and help it grow into a mid-sized company.

Whether you choose Solo or Grow, you will find that both provide you the freedom, independence and support you need to run a successful recruitment business.

Options with capital investment

If you or your team of recruiters are looking to scale your business quickly and are okay with parting with some ownership stake, SSG’s capital investment programmes are the best options available.

Our Accelerate Programme is one of the capital investment options available to clients and provides a quick launching pad for the agency. Along with market-leading back office support, owners also receive capital in exchange for 20% of the company stake.

Owners who have their eyes set on building a recruitment business that can be sold within a 5-year timeframe should consider our Enterprise Programme. While SSG retains 51% of the company stake, owners receive the ultimate recruitment business support package, including back-office support, mentorship, capital and a roadmap to selling the business.

These options are available through our SSG Ventures team.
