Recruit Ventures Lyons Personnel


Having watched a former colleague create his multi-million-pound business in just two years, Vicki Lyons realised it was a no–brainer to launch her own recruitment business with the support of The Recruit Venture Group.

I got to the stage where I thought Ive been doing this job far too long for other people,” said Vicki.

I had already established three successful recruitment branches from scratch for my employer , each with great gross profit and growth, so I knew I clearly could achieve this on my own.

“It’s a great model, the finance I needed was all in place and I was able to spend my time growing my business”

 “I suddenly realised that I was effectively running a business anyway. The problem was I had all the responsibility but few of the rewards”.

Now, just two years later, Lyons Personnel have established a reputation as experts in Driving, Industrial and Commercial recruitment across Yorkshire and Humberside.

Vicki Lyons is very clear about how she’s managed to shift from employee to employer.

Taking control of her own destiny, she’s built a recruitment business that delivers a flexible, 24/7, committed service. It’s a business that really understands the clients’ and the candidates’ needs.

Lyons Recruitment delivers a bespoke service born out of real knowledge of the sectors they operate in.

“I couldn’t have built a business that can deliver that level of service without the backing and support of The Recruit Venture Group. It’s the only business model that works for startups like me; startups who want to succeed!

“If I’d been worrying about cash flow, invoicing and admin I wouldn’t have been able to concentrate on doing what I do best – recruitment

 “I’d watched other people build a business from my efforts. When I saw someone I know build a successful business for themselves, I knew I could do it too.

 ‘When I saw The Recruit Venture Group’s business model I knew how I could build my business”

Vicki Lyons said: “To succeed I was going to need to deliver what I firmly believe is a real point of difference

“What makes us different, is that we never say ‘one job suits all’. 

“That means interviewing assessing and identifying opportunities for every single candidate.  With backing from The Recruit Venture Group we have the time and the freedom to achieve that”.
