Annual Basic Salary

How does it work?

We give you access to a full remote infrastructure, otherwise known as a virtual box of tricks, that has the full toolkit you need to set up your own recruitment business under the established Boffin brand name. You work from home, or a cafe, or wherever tickles your fancy and you define your own geographical parameters. You also choose the industry that you want to recruit within, generally based on your prior experience and existing relationships. Temporary and contract as well as permanent recruitment is an option. We work with you to develop your Boffin Business Plan so on day one, you know exactly what you're doing.

What support will I get?

This is the ideal role for someone who wants to set up their own recruitment business but before they take the full leap, would like a slight hand-hold. On a daily basis you have access to: Our Talent Manager as a sounding board, support system, someone to who you can blow your trumpet loudly or for advice and encouragement. Our Social Media Boffin for any kind of social media campaigns or advertising Our Finance & Operations Manager who takes the financial reporting aspect of contract/temp/perm recruitment squarely off your shoulders The rest of the self-employed Boffin Network via Whatsapp and Facebook groups.

What sort of tools do I get?

Access via Broadbean to a selection of UK-based job boards for CV search and vacancy advertising. An email address, inbound telephone number and business cards. Access to a Dropbox full of document templates. Use of an online third party system for timesheets and billing. Access to the REC for legislative information and industry updates.

Who we're looking for:

Bright, engaging people from any area of recruitment. Someone with a proven record of success in a recruitment agency environment. Incredible self-motivation and drive. Your success here relies entirely on how much work you put into the role.

Who is the Boffin Network for?

Our current workforce primarily, but not exhaustively, falls into two camps: Current Recruitment Consultants who've been in the game a long time, have longstanding relationships and want a more flexible pace of life. Return to workers who were successful Recruiters in a previous life, before taking extended breaks e.g. parental leave, family care or because they needed a rest. Whichever one applies to you, we'll give you the transitional and ongoing support that you need to make the business your own.


The band above is a hypothetical. There's no basic salary as this is your own business you are setting up, using the Boffin brand name. There is no upfront investment on your part. Nor any monthly retainer fees. We work on a very clear operating profit split basis. This is negotiable based upon your level of experience/network and works from 60:40 to 70:30 (the larger percentage is yours).

Non-compete clause

Our contract can be terminated at any time and does NOT have a non-compete clause. Your clients and candidates are yours. We can't, and just wouldn't want to stop you from taking them with you in the event that the relationship was dissolved.
