Buy a recruitment franchise and bring Aussies more work opportunities

Aussie small business is key to Australia’s post-Covid recovery according to a new report by small business platform Xero, which highlights the importance of job creation at the micro level.

The Xero Small Business Insights program’s The Job Ahead report reveals that Australia needs approximately 210,000 additional small-business jobs by the end of 2021 to fully recover from the pandemic.

According to Trent Innes, managing director for Australia and Asia at Xero Australia, nearly half (45 per cent) of private sector workers are in a business with fewer than 20 employees.

Matching new and existing roles to the right candidate is a substantial business. Overall the recruitment sector has been valued at $14bn by analysis firm IBISworld, so there’s no better time to be jumping on to the recruitment bandwagon.

Frontline Recruitment Group operates a niche business where franchisees draw on their personal industry experiences to operate their own small business in their chosen sector.

Franchisees operate in retail, hospitality, construction, health, education, and IT & digital industries.

Backed by 25 years of experience Frontline Recruitment today has 80,000 clients and 1.2 million candidates on its database, which franchisees can tap into. The business model provides business systems, training, budgeting and financial analysis so franchisees are set up for success from the start.

The business was acquired last year by Express Employment Professionals, a highly-experience US business that has introduced its temporary staffing recruitment model to Australia.

Express will expand and market its temporary staffing franchise concept across Australia and New Zealand, creating more opportunities for independent ownership with an international backing.
