3 Simple Steps to Recruitment Business Success

When you start your own recruitment consultancy, you just want to get out there and recruit. Right?

Nobody wants to deal with all the paperwork - it gets in the way and stops you doing what you're best at… recruiting. And that's how we can help.

Get your business up & running

It's a complete service. From the moment you join Hilton Lord we co-ordinate all the activities to get your business off the ground.

Company Registration

As soon as you've decided on your business name, we'll handle all the paperwork and deal with Companies House on your behalf.

Accounts set-up

We'll set-up your company accounts, bookkeeping and payroll systems - ensuring your finances are well organised, HMRC compliant and tax efficient.

Branding & Stationary

Our graphic designer will create a unique business identity to really make a statement in the market. You’ll soon have your own business cards so you can start networking.

IT System set-up

You'll receive a new laptop pre-configured with Microsoft Office, and access to our bespoke recruitment software. We'll also set-up multiple email addresses on your domain..


We provide a professionally designed, bespoke website with your own domain. It will be mobile-friendly and fully integrated with your recruitment software for posting vacancies and accessing contractor timesheets.

Start recruiting & invoicing

Having a support team working away in the background leaves you free to get on with developing client relationships and placing candidates.

Recruitment Software

Our secure recruitment software manages all your clients, candidates and vacancies, and supports both Temp and Perm Recruitment. It's web-based and mobile-friendly, so you can access it whenever you want, from wherever you are. The system is fully searchable, integrates with your email, enables fast CV importing and is very easy to use.

Free job boards

We'll provide you with access to some of the UK's leading Job Boards so you can search for candidates and advertise vacancies straightaway.


We'll take care of your client credit checks and send out your invoices & statements; you just need to wait for the payments to come in!


Any temporary / interim staff you place on assignment have access to our bespoke online timesheet solution, accessed through your website to continuously drive client and candidate traffic back to your site. Each week, we’ll lend you the money required to pay all your contractors and process the payments for you.

Build on your success

You can go as far and as fast as you want, we're with you every step of the way. The only limitation is your own ambition.

Mentoring & Business support

Starting your own business can be daunting; it’s useful to have someone at the end of the phone. We’ve made the mistakes and seen what works and what doesn’t. You’re free to call the team whenever you want – we‘re partners in your business and will always want to help.

Management reporting

Stay on top of your business with our comprehensive finance reports, so you can become more profitable and grow your business.

Associate Networking

When you join Hilton Lord you become part of a wider network of Associates. You can share challenges and discover new ideas, and it's great to know you're not on your own.

How do I get started?

Taking the decision to start your own recruitment consultancy is one of the biggest you'll ever make. That's why we don't believe in hard sell. We offer a free and confidential telephone meeting to chat through any questions you have. And when you're ready, we'll organise a meeting so you can talk to managing director Dave Kershaw and the team.
