About us

Who are we ?

Starting a recruitment business independently can give rise to many issues, and the first2group helps to eliminate these. Where our involvement can really add value to a recruitment company however, is in its growth phase. Hiring consultants to grow a business becomes a much more simple process with established HR procedures, contracts of employment, scalable IT and Telecoms, and most importantly, the availability of finance. The first2group effectively creates the necessary conditions for a new business to grow more quickly than conventional independent start-ups.
