Join our team of home-based recruitment consultants

For nearly 30 years, AES has been supporting and developing recruitment consultants to deliver a high-quality service to a select group of customers; we are and always will be, in the quality not quantity market.

Is this right for you?

You don’t need to be a recruitment consultant to work with AES; sales and customer service ability along with determination and a mature approach to understanding customers is a great place to start.

Recruitment is a sales business; you must be capable of understanding what your client wants and needs and then you must deliver a solution as quickly as possible and at a sensible price.

With AES’ support, you will never need to feel as if you are on your own because once you have been granted a licence to operate as an AES agent, you will be able to use our name and reputation built up over 30 years, as well as all our recruitment tools and software.

What AES can offer you

The first three months in any business, new job or even building a house is all about making sound foundations. This is also the time when you are at your most apprehensive because a lot of work can be done for very little visual reward; AES will help you through this period. We will give you key performance indicators that we use in the office to give you a good chance of making your first sale in the first two to three months.

With AES, there are no start-up costs and your only charge is a monthly fee of just £1000 plus VAT (which can be reclaimed) for everything we provide. This charge does not start until you have been with the business for three months (we are not charging you when you are laying the foundations of your business). You are therefore likely to put your first person into a job and have money in your bank account; before your first AES charge is due in month four.

The tools that we provide

For your monthly fee, AES will provide you with all the training, software systems, techniques and support to operate your recruitment business from your home/office including:

  • 5 Days (ideally longer if the licence holder can spare the time) initial training at our head office in Worcester.
  • Ongoing support and training – you can work at our Head Office for as long as you need to become accomplished.
  • Access to Dunn and Bradstreet so you can find and develop customers.
  • A licence to use ADAPT – the main recruitment industry CRM system.
  • 15 adverts per month to advertise any roles that you might find.
  • Unlimited access to do CV searching on CV library so you can find candidates that may be suitable for your vacancies.
  • Help and assistance to find, evaluate and process vacancies; especially for those people who have not actually worked in the recruitment sector.
  • Administration support to process your CVs, deal with data protection and to raise, chase and put the money from your invoices, into your account.
  • A VoIP phone so you can work anywhere in the world and it does not cost you anything.
  • Access to AES’ trading name, website and legal processes for doing business (really important with Data Protection and GDPR) and our reputation for permanent recruitment excellence; built over nearly 30 years.

What sectors and geographic areas can you work in?

You will have complete freedom to operate in any sectors that you want, and in any geographic location within the UK.

At AES, we believe in managing customers and not managing industries. If you have come from a sales or recruitment background you probably already have contacts that you would like to reach out to. Providing there is no evidence that any other AES consultant has worked with that company in the past 3 months, you are free to operate as you wish.

What would you see as success?

Most people starting their own business assume they will be a roaring success instantly; this is not realistic. Recruitment consultancy is lucrative and with our help you should be making sales quickly but be patient in your first year; you are laying the foundations of your business and quality of life for years ahead.

Realistically, by month 3 (sometimes month 2) you should be making your first sale. A typical sale for AES is £5,000 and we train our consultants to make 2 sales per month, from working a typical 35 – 40 hour week.
