The Recruitment Startup Subject Podcast – Recruitment Funding Special
Episode #7 with Simon Jay

Welcome to Season 1, Episode 7 of The Recruitment Startup Subject Podcast with your host, Max Jones. The recruitment startup podcast fixated on understanding what makes a recruiter start & thrive in their own agency. Specifically focussed on understanding what brings entrepreneurial recruitment consultants to the point of starting their own agency.

From what made them finally “make the leap” to the challenges they have faced & how they have overcome them. If you’re an aspiring recruitment business owner, which I am sure you are, why not learn from those that have done what you’re going to do? Trodden the path you’ll take & overcome the challenges you’ll face – real-life recruiters, all on their own unique recruitment startup journeys but all with hurdles overcome, advice to share & a story to tell.

In this latest episode, we were joined by the passionate & enthusiastic expert – Simon Jay. Simon has worked in the recruitment funding market for a decade & back in 2019 decided to make the leap & start his own business specialising in providing funding solutions to the recruitment industry. The journey he has been on is one that we know so many entrepreneurial recruiters can relate to & if you’re sitting there reading this blog today toying with the idea of starting your own recruitment agency – why not take the next hour or so to listen to a humble & open account of someone who one day decided to leave the security of employment & venture into their own business.

We touched upon so much but I suppose these are some of the ‘key areas’ we spoke about:

The importance of making sure that the timing is right for you to ‘make the leap’ – both professionally & personally so!

How it’s important to have the confidence & assurance in what you do to turn business way in the early days that might dilute the offering you bring to the market

The importance of partnerships & the importance of having people & companies around you that both compliment your skillset & add value in areas you may not know too much about

Why he ‘took the leap’ & what the last 11 years of working in the industry has taught him about recruitment startups

& much, much more
