WE ASK YOU: BACK OFFICE SERVICES
In the June 2015 issue of Recruitment International, we were asked to discuss the benefits of outsourcing a recruitment business’s back office functions. The below comment from MD Rhys Jones was covered.
What are the benefits of outsourcing your back office?
As backers and support providers to recruiters who want to own their own recruitment business, the main benefit of outsourcing back office solutions is that it allows our partners to focus on what they do best, recruiting. This is especially important in a startup when you break away from the comfort of an employer. Providers of back office support do vary, some include invoicing, debt collection, and even accountancy. This basic level helps take away time-consuming tasks that prevent recruiters from billing. However, it’s worth researching how much support you can get with different providers. At Davidson Gray we provide virtually everything you can think of to allow you to bill as much as possible. This includes giving the business owner a free website, database, IT support, business coaching and marketing support, all in addition to the standard invoicing and accountancy services.
