Tom's Libra story

Tom now spends his time at work doing what he's best at, and leaves all the admin to us.


How long have you worked in the recruitment industry?

I started in the recruitment industry around 5 years ago.

When did you first consider starting your own recruitment agency?

After working at the same company for 5 years, I took a year out to go travelling. Now I'm back from travelling I've been looking into setting up on my own to give me a bit more freedom than a 9-5 job.

What were the obstacles to starting out on your own?

Setting up my own business was new territory for me, so one of the biggest fears I had was taking on all the extra responsibility and business admin that comes with running a business. I also didn't want the commitment of a large business loan.

How have you found the setup process, and making the switch to Libra?

It all happened much quicker than I anticipated and I was surprised how little set up was required from my side.

How have you found the support with Libra?

I felt supported from day one. From setting up my business to filling my first booking I was guided every step of the way, and the in-depth system training helped me get off to a flying start.

What differences has our software made to how you work?

It's without doubt the best recruitment system I've used. It makes finding and hiring staff effortless and as it's all online it means I can work from anywhere without compromise.

What would you say about your earnings on Libra?

I've managed to increase my monthly earnings quite significantly. It's been really useful having the flexibility to work when I want to earn some extra money some months to fund my lifestyle.

What's your favourite thing about being self-employed with Libra?

The best part of Libra is that I can be self-employed and run my own business with complete freedom and without commitments such as a business loan. I don't need to worry too much about the business side of things, as all the admin such as payroll and compliance is taken care of, meaning I can focus on what I'm best at - recruiting staff.

Has being a Libra Partner made any differences to your lifestyle?

One of the main reasons I wanted to become self-employed was to give me more freedom to travel. Libra has been the perfect solution, it allows me to be in control of when I work, increase my earnings but without the business responsibilities that I would have if I went it alone.

Any tips or advice for somebody who is considering starting up on Libra?

It really is the easiest and most profitable way to set up a recruitment business.
