FutureYou partners with APositive to help drive rapid growth
FutureYou is an Australian executive recruitment super boutique challenging current recruitment industry thinking. Founded on the belief that there is a better way to connect outstanding talent with businesses across Australia, the company brings together a team of recruitment professionals to provide clients and candidates with depth of knowledge and specialisation. FutureYou covers a number of disciplines, without the constraints of traditional geographical borders or sector silos.
FutureYou required a partner that aligned with its aggressive growth strategy
From the outset FutureYou had aggressive growth targets. Since launching in April 2016, the recruitment business has organically grown from zero to just under 100 senior professionals from 26 different recruitment firms. The business has offices in Sydney and Melbourne, and significantly grown its permanent, temporary and contract recruitment revenue streams. “As part of our rapid growth plans it was fundamental to switch on a facility to underpin the expansion of our temporary and contracting recruitment business, alongside our permanent recruitment business,” says Simon Meyer, CEO of FutureYou. “We benchmarked and considered major financial institutions as well as a couple of boutique players including APositive, who came highly recommended to us by another recruitment firm.”
“As with all FutureYou business decisions, it was fundamental that APositive aligned to our purpose – the power to connect without limitation, and values. We chose APositive as they offered a flexible and tailored financing solution for our fast-growing temp and contracting recruitment revenue line.”
A bespoke facility that has the flexibility to expand with the company
APositive created a customised recruitment finance solution that has the proven flexibility to grow at the size and scale that FutureYou requires. “APositive’s communication and customer service – pre- and post-implementation – is excellent. APositive make a complex process straight forward for the recruitment industry,” says Simon.
FutureYou now has the ability to meet – and exceed – business objectives
Partnering with APositive has provided the foundation for FutureYou to fuel the rapid growth of their temporary and contracting recruitment book. The partnership has also enabled the company to stick with – and meet– it’s business plan and growth objectives.
