Fraud Blocker

Many start-up recruitment agencies seek funding early on. Even when self funding is an option, it is generally not maintainable, especially in the temporary recruitment sector where businesses are required to invoice and make payroll on a weekly basis. Temp recruitment agencies especially can suffer a short-fall when payroll commitments dictate they pay staff before clients have settled their invoices. 

What are your Options?

Government funded schemes and traditional bank loans do offer potential funding options for start-up recruitment agencies. However, these more traditional sources of financial support are highly competitive and often involve extensive application processes. Traditional lenders and lending schemes can also impose strict funding and credit limits.

Due to these restrictions, in recent years the number of recruitment start-ups seeking assistance from specialist recruitment finance providers has risen sharply. What can recruitment finance offer?
