I have had the pleasure of working as an Associate recruitment agent with Additional Resources Ltd for several years, and it has been a truly rewarding experience. The innovative business model of ADR has been instrumental in helping me navigate the demanding world of recruitment while allowing me to effectively manage my own time.

Victoria – Essex
I joined AR 7 years ago and it’s been one of the best decisions I have ever made.
The business model has allowed me to work flexible hours around my family and I love being my own boss.
AR has provided me with all the tools and support I have ever needed to allow me to run my business autonomously, whilst always knowing that if I need support or training they are there to help me. Anything I have asked has been actioned incredibly fast and nothing is ever too much trouble. The whole team at AR are nothing short of fantastic and I really can’t recommend them enough.

Additional Resources is a company that is always there for you. Very helpful, pleasant and nothing is ever too much trouble. I cannot recommend them enough. I have been working with them for over 10 years now, the best thing I ever did going out on my own with the support from AR.
Elaine – Reading
Joining AR it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I have worked in the recruitment sector for 9 years, but I never had so much freedom and independence. AR higher management is very helpful, and I can always rely on them. Any issues are solved immediately. I am supplying temporary workers and working on perm vacancies. HR and the compliance side of the business are remarkable, the finance and payroll team are very good and responsive. If you consider working as a freelancer recruiter there is no better place to start than Additional Resources
Hamera – Glasgow
I have been in Recruitment since 1985, in 2002 I decided to go independent having worked for some of the biggest brands at the time. Initially I did struggle to attract new clients as I did not have a big brand agency name behind me. In 2003 I joined Additional Resources (ARL) and have been with them ever since and not looked back. The facilities that ARL offer for a minimal monthly subscription are second to none; they provide access to almost all the job boards and provide you with client leads to get you started, on a monthly basis; they handle all you invoicing and chase any debtors. Basically, they offer the complete recruiter package to allow you to build and develop your own recruitment business under their guidance. This model is suitable for both experienced and new comes to the recruitment business.
Luke – West Sussex
I'm Jay, and I've been a part of Additional Resources for approximately 13 months. Originating from a catering background, where I spent 18 years, I ventured into recruitment with no prior experience, creating a considerable uncertainty about my capabilities for such a transition.
Reflecting on the past 13 months, I can confidently attest that opting for this change was a fantastic decision. The balance between work and life, coupled with an incredible support team in the background, has made this journey immensely rewarding.
My experience has been overwhelmingly positive, and I strongly encourage anyone contemplating a similar move to give it a shot. With a supportive team backing you, the head office handles everything from business development to CV sourcing, ensuring you have the resources to find suitable candidates. Senior figures like Dan are readily available for support, offering valuable advice whenever needed.
If you're considering launching your own desk, seeking an excellent work-life balance, and desiring the backing of a reputable brand with top-notch support, look no further. It's a turnkey investment that can have you operational swiftly, generating realistic and substantial income.
Based on my personal experience, I can only speak highly of this opportunity.
Jay – Shropshire
I joined the recruiter startup program with Additional Resources two years ago after a career break, having decided that I no longer wanted the 9-5 commute into London. It was a risk on my part as I had no recruitment background but having been in business for the best part of 40 years, and having experience within various sectors and an overall good understanding of employers expectations, I decided to give it a go. A decision I have never regretted.
Right from the off, the help and encouragement I received from the support team was invaluable. The CRM system that has been bespoke written especially for their business is very user friendly and is a great central point to work from where your jobs, candidates and jobs boards are all in one place. They really have thought of everything with regards to this.
Once you had accepted a role to work on, the first task was to write an advert for the position. A recent upgrade now means that the adverts team at additional res do that for you! and they send over the relevant “Boolean Search Strings”, which quite honestly makes the search for CVs so simple.
If I ever have a query the lovely Holly, or Daniel are always quick to respond to me and go out of their way to help. The chance to work from home, but at the same time have the look of a professional recruiter thanks to the infrastructure of Additional Resources that I have bought in to, has been invaluable.
For me personally I have gained so much confidence and satisfaction through successfully attempting a new career relatively late in life, I feel so grateful for having found Additional Resources and the opportunity they have given me.
