A new franchise operation designed to shake up the executive search market will give 116 senior industry experts a lucrative opportunity to set up their own businesses – and Omni Resource Management Solutions predicts much of the talent will come from the over 50s.
“Although we’re not overtly targeting over 50s for this new division of Omni – which would be illegal when age discrimination law comes into effect in October – we believe the depth of skills and expertise we’re seeking will be found largely amongst this group,” says Omni managing director Robert Leggett.
He adds: “We expect our franchise partners to earn six figure salaries within the first two years, so this is an excellent opportunity for people who have held senior roles in industry to take up a new challenge, at an age when many doors are closing.”
Omni Executive Search & Interim will be one of the few companies to operate across the entire business spectrum, which it has divided into 116 industry sectors.
“Our research shows the ticket to success in executive recruitment is in-depth market knowledge,” continues Leggett. “Recent research by Cranfield School of Management also showed that companies have most difficulty in recruiting at a senior level. For this reason, we’re looking for mature industry experts who we can train in innovative best recruitment practice – not recruitment specialists.”
“The over 50s have the greatest experience of life and work, but often reach a dead end because of their age. This franchise venture will give senior industry experts the opportunity to become some of the UK’s most successful ‘head-hunters’.”
