No Recruitment Experience but Want to Place People in Roles : Recruitment

Afternoon,

I am an IT professional with 20+ years experience in the UK market (Both perm and contract). Over that time I have built great relationships with fellow professionals, and managers. I’ve lost count the number of times I’ve effectively placed people (contractors) into roles through word of mouth but have always had to refer them to an agency. I have a little knowledge of the recruitment industry and I understand how difficult it may be for a recruiter to find and place good quality people, however what I don’t have is the access to the terms of business, contract templates between agency and client, and between agency and contractor.

Without wanting to sound ignorant or undermine recruiters, would it be possible for me to create a recruitment agency and start placing people myself?

Of course, I won’t have access to thousands of CV’s but what I will have is an very in-depth knowledge of the IT industry, the current in-demand skills, access to very good quality people, and access to managers in senior positions that may be a route to get on to the elusive Preferred supplier list.

Happy to be shot down if you think I’m living in cuckoo land but I thought I’d just put it out there.
