Andover-based Recruit2Care opened its doors for the first time in September 2018 and serves  Hampshire’s healthcare sector.

The agency is led by Managing Directors Laura Hosking and Denise Coates, who both previously had a long and varied career in recruitment and healthcare before deciding to launch the business with the help of The Recruit Venture Group.

Denise and Laura are looking to use their combined 20 years of healthcare experience to tackle the current staffing issues facing healthcare providers across the region and with the support of The Recruit Venture Group are well placed to do exactly that.

“The demand for services is going up and healthcare providers need good recruitment agencies more than they have needed them before,” said Laura.

““We know, from our time as carers, that people live happier, healthier lives when they receive the right care and Recruit2Care are all about ensuring that people get the care they deserve.

“By launching our own agency we are able to embrace that people-focused approach and thanks to The Recruit Venture Group we have the time to do it.”

Denise and Laura’s business was given 100% of the finance needed to launch by the Recruit Venture Group, removing any financial risk and that support will remain as the business expands.

The Recruit Venture Group provides the business with full back office support, including accounts, payroll, HR, legal and IT, meaning there is no time consuming, expensive administration for Denise and Laura to think about.

“This is a business where you can make a real difference to people’s lives and with the support of The Recruit Venture Group we know we can achieve that,” Denise said.

“The support we have received has made the process of launching our own business really simple and allowed us to focus on what really matters.

“I would definitely recommend the joint venture model to anyone who is thinking about launching their own business. Even if you don’t know where to start, the support and resources you need will be on hand.”
