Season 6 | Episode 15 – Ephram Stephenson on growing to over 100 people in 12 months of trading

6 January 2023|In Podcasts|By Sean Anderson

On this week’s show, I am joined by Ephram Stephenson.

Ephram is the CEO of Collar Group, a recruitment group based in Australia with nine offices and over a hundred staff. 

Interestingly, Ephram only started the business in the summer of 2021 and sent his first invoice in October 2021.

Since then, he’s grown an agency that covers predominantly blue-collar recruitment, but is now moving into white-collar recruitment and exec search.

Now, this is not Ephram’s first venture into recruitment ownership.

He got into the industry in Australia in the 2000s.

He did two and a half years as a consultant where he was a top biller earning a lot of money, and then started his own business, which he had for 17 years.

He’s launched a number of different recruitment businesses and brands within that time and has been hugely successful.

He is one of the most energetic and enthusiastic owners I’ve ever met. You’ll notice this on the podcast.

There have been a few guests over the last couple of years that stand out with that no-holds-barred, high-growth energy and absolutely no ceiling on where they want to go. 

And this is another installment of that type of episode.

So if you are in the blue- or white-collar recruitment space, and you are looking to hear about a story of someone with absolutely ridiculously high growth plans, this is one for you. 

Super honest, super open, and hugely inspiring. I loved every minute of recording it, and I hope you enjoy the show.
