Antal International Network, a global executive recruitment company, has been helping clients find the right candidates and assisting individuals to progress their careers since 1993.
Using a methodical approach to recruitment, this privately-owned business grew by opening a number of company-operated offices. Today, Antal International Network has approximately 159 offices in 38 countries, including China, India and Russia.
Instead of focusing on a country or region, the company’s consultants specialise in a single discipline or sector, such as banking and finance, building and construction, information technology or law and legal services, which means they have in-depth knowledge and understanding of the industry within which they work.
This strategy has resulted in consultants successfully placing many thousands of candidates in roles in small and medium-sized enterprises and multinational corporations every year and earning millions of pounds in fees.
The Antal Charitable Foundation has been supporting charities such as the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, Regenerate UK, Friends of Sure24, Chance UK and Compassion for Migrant Children since its formation in 2008.
How does the Antal International Network franchise model work?
Recruitment is a specialist industry, which is why companies use businesses such as Antal International Network to find top talent on their behalf.
Antal International Network franchisees tend to focus on the sector in which they worked prior to investing in the franchise. Using the franchisor’s tried-and-tested methodologies, a franchisee’s role is to develop long-term relationships with client companies at a senior level, while assisting clients to make their next career move in line with their personal goals.
A franchisee’s income is derived from placing mid to senior level candidates in suitable roles, from which they earn between 20 and 33 per cent of the individual’s salary and remuneration package in their first year with the employer.
According to Antal International Network, the essence of its business model is collaboration across its international network. The company says over 21 per cent of all revenues are from fee sharing between offices, as it’s not unusual for franchisees to work together on a particular assignment.
