Freelance and Home-based Business of the Year 2013
Founder: Catherine Kennard
Year Started: 2013
Not your typical recruitment business, Lovework is a start-up working specifically for other start-ups. It intends to connect the most exceptional people to exciting roles in high-growth entrepreneurial businesses and fledgling companies, providing new ventures with the best team of people to help them become tomorrow’s success story.
In its first seven months, Kennard had already helped to recruit high-calibre individuals for several impressive UK start-ups including payasUgym, onefinestay and Abel & Cole, to name a few. The recruitment company has also focused its efforts on supporting pre-launch businesses to find suitable employees.
Having created an effective, profitable, brand in just a number of months, the disruptive recruitment company has plans to extend its offering and host its own entrepreneur networking events which will look to enable clients to meet potential employees and market their brand.
Lovework has only started trading this year and the judges loved Catherine Kennard’s brilliant track record for placing exceptional people into some of the UK’s best entrepreneurial businesses. Her home-based business was started with £10,000 savings and looks set to more than double turnover next year while posting impressive profits.
