Why join District4?

Own your own business

Are you sick of being micro-managed or working to pointless KPI’s? Do you know in your heart that you could do this by yourself but are scared of going it alone? 

At District4 you get the best of both worlds. You own your own recruitment business but you also have a community of other District4 owners to support you.

Keep up to 90% of revenue

Do you ever look at your payslip and feel like you should be taking home more of your billings? As a District4 owner you take the lions share of what you generate but still have your technology and back office sorted for you. 

You keep 70% of all billings up to £200k pa and a whopping 90% of billings when you bill over £200k pa. Potential to easily double your current earnings AND own your own business.

Launch support

We know the first 6 month are the most daunting so we’re constantly working with our members to design the perfect launch package. We want to make sure you’re up and running quickly, minimise distractions and maximise your success. 

It’s not just providing the tech and tools you need but also support and expertise from our experts and other members. Full info below.

Back office & systems sorted

Do you want to concentrate on what you do best and let us take care of the rest? We provide full back-office support to our owner members as standard. 

This includes credit checks, invoicing, credit control, payroll and invoice factoring if needed; as well as IT support via our partners Enable. And all the systems you need day to day like Talent Rover and Office 365. Easy.

Flexible working

Craving that elusive work/life balance? We hear the term “Work/life balance” a lot. But what does it actually mean? For us it means FREEDOM. Freedom to work how you want, when you want, with whom you want!! 

Freedom to choose your clients, freedom to work how you want to work and most importantly freedom to work WHEN you want so that you can take your kids to school, go to the gym, walk the dog and manage your own schedule without anyone needing to know what you are doing and when. You take care of designing your life as you want it and we’ll take care of the rest.

Be part of a community

Worried that working alone might be lonely? As recruiters we tend to be very social and when we suddenly find ourselves going it alone, we can miss the camaraderie of working with others. That’s why when putting together the District4 model we focused upon giving you the tools to be a recruitment business owner in your own right BUT also be a part of a community of other District4 owners. 

This allows you to share your journey and get support from others who either are going through the same things as you OR are slightly ahead of you and can share their journey of getting there. To us this is invaluable.

Case study


Social Housing Expert

As an experienced recruiter Matt had been thinking about starting his own recruitment business for a while. He was putting the work in and getting the results but didn’t feel as though he was getting what he needed back as an agency recruiter.

But it wasn’t an easy decision to make, so with this in mind he decided to try one more recruitment agency to see if it was different. It wasn’t.

Matt wanted to build something he’d be proud of and be really focused on using his experience to deliver excellent service and results to clients and candidates. He didn’t want to worry about all the business stuff. And he didn’t want to be told what to do because by this stage of his career he knew how to do recruitment better than his boss.

We were introduced and it became clear we shared common vision and values and could give him what he needed to be successful and happy. We helped Matt to launch his business in 2021.

On his start date Matt went live with full marketing support and picked up a new client in his first week. He then did two deals worth £26k in his first month using LinkedIn Recruiter for his very happy new client.

For the first deal members are paid on invoice to help with cashflow so at the end of his first month Matt had £18k (70% of £26k) in the bank.

Matt wasn’t worried about starting his own business anymore. Instead, he was excited about the future of his business and felt fully supported in his venture. If you would like to chat with Matt or any of our Founding owner members about their District4 experience, then get in touch below.

Any Questions?


Because we’re building a community of people who are independent but want to collaborate and build something bigger and better together.
Each member is self-employed i.e. they set up their own limited company which they are a director of. That company then invoices D4 and D4 invoices the client.
Once membership is approved then you’ll be ready to go within a week.

Member success is our single biggest focus and we understand the first 6 months are the hardest. So we do everything we can to help you succeed fast:

  • Support on putting business plan together
  • We’ll provide a coach for the first 6 months (you chose who you connect with)
  • LinkedIn Recruiter for the first 6 months (including latest LinkedIn insights product)
  • Dedicated Member Success Executive
  • Systems integrated and all ready to go from Day 1
  • We pay 70% of first deal on invoice to help with cash.

We’re constantly getting member feedback to see what else we can do to help: a successful member is a happy member! If you’ve any ideas just let us know.

We’re sure you will, good people tend to know good people. Any member referring another member receives 2% of their billings. The more of us there are, the more powerful it becomes.

Yes! Cross-selling, joint pitches, shared learnings and support.
The whole concept is that members will drive the key areas of the Community according to what they’re interested in. We’ll have dedicated groups of members for marketing, community/collaboration, systems, member selection and more who will make the decisions in these areas supported by our Operations teams.
That could happen but the beauty of taking 70% is that you could bill half of normal in your first year and still earn the same. Then in Year 2 onwards you will make a lot more.
