Jake’s story was a tale as old as time in the recruitment industry – a talented young recruiter who was hitting up against all the limitations he could… 

…limitations as to what clients he worked with.

…limitations regarding when and where he could work.

…limitations on how much he could make, no matter how well he did.

And it was all because he was playing by someone else’s rules – because he was working for someone else.

Whilst some recruiters may be okay with someone else setting the status quo, ambitious ones like Jake generally aren’t, at least when it means their potential is being limited. So Jake decided to take his future into his own hands.

In 2018, Jake started Albion Rye, a recruitment agency specialising in the life sciences sector, both permanent and temporary. His goals were ambitious and immediate, which made us smile – he was the exact kind of recruiter we love to work with. Someone who just cannot wait to get started and run, unbridled, towards their own crystal-clear vision.

As part of our GROW programme, Jake owned 100% of his business straight out of the gate, and his growth was instant.

In just 3 years, Albion Rye grew to:

  • 13 people
  • £1m+ per year
  • Expansion into the EU & US

And who owns all of that success? JAKE DOES. And his life is abundant and full as a result.

Now let’s talk about you.

Maybe you’re like Jake – sick of playing by someone else’s rules, and ready to grow at the same ambitious rate he did. But you’re currently stuck. You don’t know where or how to start.

At SSG, we work with recruiters just like you to create businesses that YOU own, setting YOUR future up for financial success and personal freedom.
