How we helped Jaeger Recruitment to boost operations & plan for growth


Over the past year, Jaeger Recruitment has gone from onboarding a couple of candidates per week to over 100 per day. Headed up by Paul McGrath, who has over a decade of experience and worked with some of the country’s most well-known financial institutions, and his wife Amelia, who successfully ran her own business for 15 years prior to joining Paul, Jaeger got off to a flying start. But when it came to cash flow, they knew they needed assistance…

Sights on scaling

Jaeger’s growth journey really began in May 2021, when they got onto the PSL of a major client. To place drivers on an ongoing basis, they required a funding partner that could scale up and down credit limits based on seasonality and other influencing factors.

As a husband-and-wife team, they wanted a company they could just pick up the phone and call whenever they needed advice. So they searched for a provider that would offer both flexibility and ease of communication. After a few conversations with Shelagh and co, it became clear that Easypay Services fit the bill.

Funding the success

Not only did Easypay set Jaeger up with flexible access to funding, they also took over Jaeger’s back-office support and introduced them to an umbrella provider who was part of the Workr Group. This meant taking care of time-consuming demands such as timesheet submission and payroll, as well as dealings with HMRC.

Originally, Paul approached Shelagh about providing crane hire staff, as he thought he was managing with his small-scale driving business. When Shelagh said they could expand on this with funding, everything took off. With Easypay’s support, Jaeger has ramped up their operations without worrying about cash flow or credit limits. And, by working as partners, Jaeger can plan for the next stage of growth – including breaking into new markets.

Looking to the future

It’s hardly surprising that Jaeger was recognised as Small Business of the Year at the Sedgemoor Business Excellence Awards 2021. Paul’s impressive industry expertise means he was always destined for success, whilst Amelia has proven to be the backbone of the organisation throughout its continued development. Our funding and back-office support simply helped them fulfil the business’ potential by freeing up invaluable time to do what they do best.

Paul and Amelia are now looking at securing business with a big player in the parcel world. They’ve recently become CIS registered with Gross Status, allowing them to stretch further afield into construction, and also have keen eyes on the healthcare and education sectors. We can’t wait to support them on the next stage of their growth journey – watch this space!

“All I can say is thanks for all the help provided so far, if it wasn’t for that, we wouldn’t be in the position we are now.” – Paul McGrath, Director at Jaeger Recruitment
