A brand-new recruit-to-own business model has been introduced at leading global recruitment firm, Express Employment Professionals. Proven a success in the US, the exciting program delivers more opportunities for ambitious individuals to become their own boss.

Now the highly successful system is in operation in Australia, enabling would-be entrepreneurs to benefit from salary security and a strong level of support.

Express Employment Professional ANZ CEO, Arthur McColl, said the program attracts top performers looking to be their own boss.

New recruit-to-own program attracting high fliers

“We are actively hiring high performing sales or recruitment professionals with a burning desire to run their own business,” he says. “Our Recruit to Own entrepreneurs will ultimately benefit from the franchise structure but with the support of a competitive salary package, accelerated leadership program and finance to support them into ownership of their own business within a nine to 15 month period.”

Introducing this innovative system creates a new pathway for high fliers who want some certainty as they build their businesses.

“Our Recruit To Own model is a unique solution for recruitment and sales professionals who have the talent and drive to build a strong and profitable business but need the security of salary, the backing of an experienced team and further development to achieve that reality,” explains Arthur.           

The brand-new program is already underway. Fired-up recruits are joining the Express Employment Professionals brand eager to start their franchise journey. The recruitment firm signs up prospective business owners as employees and then nurtures them through the steps to franchise ownership, helping them develop the skills needed to succeed as a franchisee.

Express brings US experience to Australian market

This exciting system is a smart way for a whole new cohort to benefit from the brand’s experience and knowledge. It’s an alternative to the existing traditional franchise acquisition activity.

The business has a history of first class flexible recruitment and staffing. It has operated for nearly 40 years in the US. Express entered the Australian market in 2020 and opened its first agency in Sydney Olympic Park. Today there are an additional three agencies now operating in Adelaide, Greystanes in New South Wales and Canberra. 

Express acquired the established Australian franchise recruiter Frontline Recruitment Group in 2020.  

CEO Arthur McColl has led the brand under new ownership to record growth, extremely high owner engagement and an increase in multi-site ownership. The same leadership and head office team based in Sydney supports both Frontline Recruitment and Express Employment Professionals.

Strategic growth for Express

Recruitment is a multi-billion dollar business: Express alone has an annual turnover exceeding US$4.5 billion dollars.

And with 880+ locations across five countries, it is a globally recognised player in the marketplace. Expansion into Australia is an important step in the growth of Express Employment International.

This latest initiative will be a major contributor to the brand’s strategic growth. It will also provide an important entry point for would-be entrepreneurs. Express Employment Professionals can become a catalyst for them to fulfil their business ownership dreams.
