“Having our cash flow and administration running perfectly was vital to our launch, growth and success”

Barry Griffiths recognised the need for flexible, cost effective, recruitment strategies in the driving and logistics sector.

With the backing of The Recruit Venture Group he’s been able to develop a business offering an unparalleled level of service to large and small businesses.

“The Recruit Venture Group provided finance, systems and an industry leading back office operation. It meant I could get on with what I needed to do; grow my business.

“You can’t grow a recruitment business unless you can get out there to find clients and develop a pool of candidates. To do that you have to know that the office is operating smoothly and reliably.

“Having our cash flow and administration running perfectly was vital to our launch, growth and success”.

“This is a route to starting up that I’d recommend to any recruitment professional who wants to do it their own way.
