EXCEPTIONAL COMMUNICATION, BUSINESS OFFERING & EXPERTISE
Having owned my own business previously, I was looking for a new challenge and recruitment was always something that I had a real interest in. I did my research into the different sectors of the industry and realised there was plenty of opportunities available to go it alone and buy into a franchised business. I chose Kenect Recruitment primarily due to their exceptional communication, business offering, and expertise.
From the very first contact all the way through to completion of the franchise agreement I felt “cared for” and that it was me they were interested in. They are so willing to work with you and are behind you all the way as you begin to grow and expand your business. Thanks, Kenect!

AUDIENCES AND SECTORS
The recruitment industry is HUGE in the UK. Did you know 9 in 10 companies use a recruitment agency!? This means only one thing... there is ample opportunity for all involved to take a piece of the pie. Unlike other franchises, Kenect offers our franchisees the opportunity to work on three key sectors rather than just the one. This means you can focus on different markets at the same time and secure different revenue streams which will then contribute to a bigger overall profit.
Logistics which is one of the biggest industries in the UK. From LGV Drivers and Van Drivers to Planners and Transport Managers there is huge demand and competition for staff. According to the FTA there were 2.54M people working in the industry in 2017 rising to an estimated 2.76M for 2018 and over 3M forecast for 2019. This market is very lucrative and focused on more than any other by our competitors. With 99% of logistic companies using agencies and an average £4.50ph margin, you can see why.
The industrial sector is also mainly Logistical based however it exists everywhere in almost every business. Most people class Industrial recruitment as warehousing however it also covers factory workers, labourers, driver’s mates, refuse workers, pickers, packers, labellers, FLT Drivers, production operatives, loaders, Council workers and much more. It is believed there are more recruitment agencies in the UK that supply this sector than any other, this is probably due to its diversity and reach.
The Commercial or Office sector is also one that falls in with both the Transport and Industrial sectors. There are more permanent opportunities and higher profit margins within this sector than the other. From Office Juniors all the way up to M.D’s and CEO’s there is huge scope and opportunity for success. Nearly every business has an office of some sort or administration staff so you can see the potential.
