Could becoming a home based consultant be right for you?


Through the AES licence holder scheme we can offer an alternative way of working where the main beneficiary of your talent, skill and hard-work is YOU.

There are obvious financial benefits in becoming an AES licence holder but there are also real life style choices when you work this way that need to be considered. If you are reading this you have probably decided you want one or more of the following:

  • Take your first tentative step in running your own recruitment business.
  • Receive more income from your efforts – a typical sale at AES is £5,000 and you should do two sales per month for a 37.5 hour week. You receive all the income you generate.
  • Earn enough to work from home and combine a career with bringing up a family.
  • Work with a friend at a location of your choice and in an industry sector you feel comfortable with.
  • Need to work in a geographical location for personal reasons where career alternatives are limited.

The majority of people will never think that they could work for themselves and will only consider it when they are desperate, normally having lost their job; this is silly.

If you are pro-active, prefer flexibility and want more control over your earnings, working for yourself is a viable alternative, especially if you already know you have the potential and just need a company to work alongside you for reassurance.

“I have worked in recruitment for 13 years, constantly hitting £100k targets year on year, whilst working long hours. I now work from home & work a fraction of what I used to. I still make a minimum of one sale per month, which will increase as time goes on. I have a fantastic work life balance which is something I’ve always strived for. Although I work from home, I still have the office support from the AES team as & when I need it, they have been extremely helpful & always make sure I have everything I need.”


“We both have a recruitment background and are used to hard targets and long days in the office. After having our families our priorities changed and we decided to share a licence between us and split the workload. We now both work 2-3 days a week but around our families. We can still feel like part of a team but with the flexibility of the work being around our lives and not the other way around.”

“AES gave me the opportunity that I had been seeking for a long time, I always used to say to my peers I can’t believe how much I am making the company and only getting such a small amount for myself but with the help of AES I finally managed to keep 100% of what I made. Working with AES allowed me to be flexible with my working hours and really give me that work/life balance that everyone craves.”


“With my sales background I found it easy to transfer my skills across to recruitment. I now have the pleasure of being able to work whenever I want with a few of my preferred customers to make regular sales. For me the freedom of being able to take a holiday whenever I want and work where and when I want is priceless.”


“I am a 22 year old sales executive and live in The Highlands of Scotland. I had no recruitment experience but wanted to see if I could start my own enterprise and was attracted to AES because of the support. I used savings for the first four monthly payments and having made 3 sales in this period I had much more than my money back which I was very pleased with. In addition, AES paid for flights and picked me up at the airport for follow up training after I had been with the company for 6 weeks; that was impressive!”


“I am an ex-employee of AES joining in 2006. I decided to be independent in 2007 because I was fed up making AES money! I now enjoy a regular six figure income and rarely go to the office. I could easily do this for myself but having people to do my admin, sort out my invoices and pay the money into my account is actually very helpful. I am also reassured that if I need help (or just want to talk about Rugby!) I can call the office”


“I joined AES in 2008 after an early career in the Telecommunications industry, and following recommendations from existing licence holders. The rigorous initial training quickly got me up to speed with the basics of recruitment and the regular update training has helped my CPD. The AES management team is always willing and able to provide help and guidance at short notice, whether it be contract law or a delicate Client relationship issue.


“I was the classic Recruitment Consultant in the 1980s and 90s – constantly pursuing high sales figures, long hours away from home and feeling guilty about not being able to spend time with the family. I joined AES many years ago, and have built up a small base of core customers who are very happy to give me repeat business, which gives me a similar income with far less hours. I can work flexible hours when I need to, and spend more time with the family. A lifestyle result for me!”


“A health scare in my 50s, for me, was what I needed to readdress what I was doing. I was living in a lovely part of rural Wales but travelling hours on the Motorways and nights away from home were the norm in my role as a Lighting Sales Manager. With many years of sales experience, I was surprised that in the first week with AES I was seeing selling techniques I wish I had known 25 years ago”
