29 July 2021|In Podcasts|By Gurnie

This is the LAST episode of the season! 

2020/21 has been epic for The RAG Podcast, interviewing over 120 amazing recruitment business owners throughout one of the craziest times we have ever seen!

Before I begin my short break from recording, I am excited to be interviewing Jamie Woods, CEO & Founder of JCW Group – a 14 year old  international recruitment agency in London, Frankfurt, New York, Austin and LA.

Starting the business from his living room at the age of 24 with 2 yrs recruitment experience, it is safe to say that Jamie has made lots of mistakes and learnt a hell of a lot on the way!

In this episode we discussed:

🎙The story of launching JCW after only 2 yrs in recruitment

🎙How the business was flying going into the Global Financial Crisis

🎙The challenge of managing managers at 30 staff and how he overcame this

🎙How he doubled the business since 2018 when he went back into a hands on CEO role

🎙The vision he has for the future and why he has no intention of selling 

🎙His 3 major learnings for any other owners with aspirations of scale

Genuinely down to earth guy with an insane work ethic, if you would like to ask Jamie any questions directly then please DM him on LinkedIn

Thanks so much for listening to the RAG this season, I value every single one of you!

Back in Aug 21 for Season 5 -stay tuned!!
