Recruit Venture Thorne and Wait

Thorne & Wait hit the ground running

Steve Thorne and Wesley Wait wanted to start their own recruitment business. Recruitment they knew about. Business – they weren’t quite so sure.

“We had the drive to set up on our own but did not have a clue about how to run all that other stuff that happens behind the scenes. In the past, that had always been ‘someone else’s job,” said Steve.

 “The Recruit Venture Group offered us a solution; a complete back office support function to remove the worry and stress”

Steve Thorne and Wesley Wait had each notched up around nineteen years in recruitment.  They were totally confident about their abilities and absolutely committed to to their dream.

It was the shift from recruitment consultants to recruitment entrepreneur that was worrying them and it was finding the right financial backing that was holding them back.

“The Recruit Venture Group offered us not just sound, risk free, financial backing to take our business plan from concept to reality, they also a provided a complete back office support function. It meant we could get on with recruitment.

 “We didn’t, as owners, want to become bogged down with all the administration when we needed to focus on working with our team to grow our business.

“There is no doubt that the administrative back up provided by The Recruit Venture Group has been instrumental in allowing us to grow as quickly as we have,” Wesley added.

“The Recruit Venture Group offered exactly what we needed. Financial backing to allow us to launch and ongoing support to allow us to grow.

‘Without the risk free, all embracing support of The Recruit Venture Group we would not have been able to get to market as quickly as we did.

“We also wouldn’t have had the financial security we have been able to count on or someone to turn to whenever we needed to”.
