We firmly believe that almost anybody working in Britain today is daydreaming about getting to work in a sunnier foreign clime – and as technology improves, this just gets more possible!
Recruitment agencies come in all shapes and sizes, and some of the agencies we’ve worked with don’t fit the typical recruitment model at all. A relatively recent trend is for recruitment agencies to be registered here, using TBOS Complete to handle their back office needs and provide a UK base, with the directors and sales team based overseas.
Agencies like these use our offices as their registered address at Companies House, with UK bank accounts and UK based phone numbers, allowing them to appear to be based in the UK – but the staff making placements are resting comfortably in cheap condos across from the beach somewhere near the Med.
We also work with UK-facing agencies in Denmark, Sweden, Poland – even Germany – making sure their back office runs smoothly while they handle the billing side of things.
We’re on hand to deal with invoicing, payroll, credit control, and to produce management figures and reconcile online accounts.
TBOS Freedom also allows us to tackle the one other issue that sometimes arises; directors without a UK base can have difficulty arranging an invoice finance facility.
We speak regularly to the directors by phone or email and use video conferencing to discuss accounts monthly in virtual meetings – even when it’s hard to concentrate, hearing the rain against our windows and seeing bright sunshine over their shoulders.
We’re proud to support these agencies, and when other directors raise the idea of running their agency from abroad, we’re always ready to help them get comfortable with the idea and offer useful suggestions.
