The recruitment start-up connecting “exceptional” people to “exceptional” early-stage businesses
Founder: Catherine Kennard
Launched: January 2013
A recruitment company with a twist, Lovework helps to fill positions for fast-growth start-ups and fledgling businesses.
Having only started trading 11 months ago, the Henley-based recruitment service has fulfilled its statement that it “connects exceptional people to exceptional jobs,” having placed candidates in leading entrepreneurial businesses such as payasUgym, BEAR Nibbles and onefinestay.
As a start-up working to support other start-ups, Kennard has got a good knowledge of the marketplace and her recruitment company even focuses its efforts on helping pre-launch businesses find suitable employees.
Winner of the Freelance and Home-based Business of the Year Award at the Startups Awards 2013, founder Catherine Kennard started the business on a shoe-string budget of £10,000 and now turnover looks set to hit six-figures with impressive profits also projected.
Plans for expansion are forecast for the year ahead and in the new year the business will incorporate networking events within its offering to strengthen client relationships and grow its entrepreneur network.
