Our funding enables entrepreneurs to start and scale recruitment businesses primed for sustained growth, whilst achieving the highest possible personal wealth for each founder. Chairman James Caan CBE and our investment team each personally invest when you do, making our investment a partnership.


Our partners receive leadership advice from our senior management team, who have considerable experience in starting and scaling recruitment businesses. Joining our portfolio also means you become part of a collegiate group of business founders with a proven record in overcoming the challenges in the early stages of building a business.


Developing a robust strategy is fundamental to scaling from a boutique specialist to a recognised business with market share. It takes senior strategic planning, leading infrastructure, and expert support to scale for sustained growth. We work with each founder to ensure their business is focusing its core activity on areas crucial to delivering growth targets.

More than just monetary investment

Financial support

Utilising the right resources, processes and robust financial systems are crucial when building your business. Our team of specialist finance professionals support you in all areas; from payroll and credit control to management forecasting and an annual audit conducted by Deloitte.

Strategic market advice

We work closely with each of our partners to create global sales strategies for client acquisition, retention and growth; reviewing affiliate associations, upselling, and cross-selling opportunities to help you stay ahead of the curve in the eyes of your clients and candidates.

International expansion

We are focused on replicating the success of our model into the Irish and APAC markets, as a major step in furthering our international presence. Our global expansion plans provide excellent opportunities for opening offices overseas and international client attraction.

Branding and marketing

A marketing strategy is critical to standing out within a saturated market and giving our partners the competitive edge in winning business. We support each founder through choosing a company name, branding, designing a website, growing social media audiences and delivering campaigns.

Operational strategy

Our team are on hand to help you overcome operational hurdles by implementing strategic business solutions. We have a dedicated GDPR representative, IT support services and a tailored CRM system in place, enabling you to concentrate on building your business.

A global talent network

Your employee value proposition is supported by our international network of partners, training programmes and tailored marketing for your brand. We have over 65,000 followers across social media and are invested in supporting our portfolio partners in attracting great people.
