The Independent Recruiter Hub

What Hunted Says

Setting up on your own. Ugh. Think of all the HMRC and legal and financial and systems stuff you'd have to do first. So I guess you'll have to keep working for a company that only lets you see max 40% of your billings. Constantly funding someone else's dream. Well not any more. The Independent Recruiter Hub covers all the boring bit for you. So you can get set up and billing ASAP. Line your Monzo account with 70% of your commission. Plus with their referral scheme, you can take home an extra £5k per person you introduce to the IRH. Introduce 5 people and that's an addition £25k per year... on top of your own billings. Winning.

Rethink setting up on your own

What grinds recruiter's gears more than candidate drop outs? Admin. And the admin that comes with setting up your own business is enough to put the most determined recruiter off it. Peter Hobson worked in recruitment for 10 years before setting up his own Supply Chain recruitment business as a 1 man band. And what did he find? A never ending to do list of admin and stress. Sleepless nights over systems, advertising, accounts, legal. Where to start, who to use, what to do!?! After successfully launching his own business, Tom Samuel Recruitment, he decided to help other recruitment entrepreneurs do the same. Welcome to The Independent Recruiter Hub.

The Big Twelve12

To earn £100,000/year as a member of The Independent Recruiter Hub, you need to bill an average of £12,000 a month. We call it doing “The Big Twelve12”. Minimum monthly targets in most recruitment businesses are at this level but they will not pay you £100,000 to do it! Here is the best bit. Once you have done the Big Twelve12 (or £144,000 in the calendar year), YOU WILL RECEIVE 100% OF THE REVENUE for the remainder of the year. Check out the table below to see what you could be earning👇👇👇

Earn as much as you like... No really. I'm serious

Average revenue for recruiters in the UK (according to the REC) is £97,000 per annum per consultant. Average salary for a UK recruiter is £27,820. If you billed £97,000 as a member of The Independent Recruiter Hub, you would earn £68,000. Our members often earn far in excess of this. The Independent Recruiter Hub is a great solution for both top billers and those only able to commit to part time hours (parents, people with busy lifestyles outside of work etc.). For top billers, the sky is the limit. For our part time members, the minimum requirement is £60,000 revenue per annum.

There's no 'I' in team...

But I suppose there is in Independent Recruiter Hub Despite the fact we're running our own businesses we're very much still a community. If you don't like sharing then we might not be for you. We revolve around the Spirt of the Hub. We all share information, candidates, clients, collaborating as one team despite the fact we're separate business. We have a quarterly get togethers where we attend training and community events... and the pub. Remember we take no shares or equity from your business. All that happens is your end clients pay us then, we pay you 70% of your billings... once you've billed £144k, you'll see 100% of your earnings.

Been there done that. Take it from Gareth

"It was a daunting decision to set up and go it alone but ‘The Hub’ was really supportive at each stage of my decision making. Since starting, I have not looked back. I have found that the ongoing support from ‘The Hub’ has enabled me to start billing quickly, realising my first fee within 2 months of trading. The investment from ‘The Hub’ in the tools and tech to do the job is second to none, and what has been especially great is their willingness to listen to your ideas, take onboard feedback, and implement changes. I have most definitely rediscovered my passion for recruitment, and found that a good strategy allows you to work more flexibly than most of the big recruitment brands would have you believe – in terms of processes, KPI’s, and hours at your desk – whilst earning significantly more of the fees that you work hard to generate. I couldn’t recommend The Independent Recruiter Hub highly enough."
