Who We Are

Our team is your team, our expertise is your expertise, and our successes are your successes when you’re an SSG partner.

How we support

At SSG we have helped more than 500 recruitment businesses over the past 20 years, making our team well placed to assist you in launching your recruitment business. We have successfully traversed the industry's changes over the last decade and can provide solutions that make it possible for our clients to outperform their competitors.

Allowing our clients to focus on recruiting and billing takes the stressful elements out of running a business. There is no need to worry about accounting, marketing or legal process - leave all that to us, it's what we do.

Our number one goal is to make it as easy as possible for you to achieve your dream of launching and running a successful recruitment business.

The sectors we serve

While other support companies focus on one specific sector, SSG does not. Instead, we work with recruiters from all major markets and industries that offer services ranging from permanent placements to FTC and temp placements.

It is common for our clients to start their journey focusing on a niche market, but as their business continues to grow and with the support of SSG, they can expand into other verticals.


Where our clients reside

It can be difficult to find the perfect location for your recruitment business. When you find it, you want a partner who can provide support regardless of where you hang your shingle. That is why SSG doesn't limit our clients based on location.

Currently, we have recruiters who are setting up their agencies all across the UK. We also provide support for several agencies that are working internationally, including the lucrative US, EU and Asian markets.

Thanks to our team of talented individuals, our accountants, lawyers and marketers have experience helping clients operate in different parts of the country and across the globe.


Core support areas

We understand that no two clients are the same, and we believe each deserves to have their own plan for launching their business. Below are a few of the support areas that you will receive when working with SSG.


Client Support Services

You’ll receive a dedicated support team led by a Client Support Service Account Manager that will assist in establishing growth plans, mapping out roadmaps to success and act as a mentor.


Technical Support

Our technology experts are ready to assist you with anything ranging from setting up new computers and emails to consulting on technology that could improve your business efficiency.


Marketing Support

Work with our team of marketing experts to launch digital marketing campaigns, create social media strategies and attract your ideal clients in engaging ways.


Accounting & Payroll support

Remove the headache of accounting by letting our team of accounting professionals look after your bookkeeping, taxes and payroll each month.
