Recruit Ventures Whurk Recruitment

freedom to focus with the recruit venture group

Laura Claughan identified the potential and huge rewards owning her own recruitment business would bring and turned her dream into reality after partnering with The Recruit Venture Group.

Leaving a well-paid job as a consultant to become a business owner is a challenge, but a challenge that is incredibly rewarding and a challenge that is made easier by launching with The Recruit Venture Group, like Laura opted to do.

“There is so much to consider when starting out in your business, it’s difficult to know where to focus,” said Laura.

“But, with The Recruit Venture Group you are launching with experts who know what is important and they take care of all the important processes that go into launching a business.

“You can’t be afraid of hard work, I am the business owner but I am still doing the same job as I did when I was a consultant.”

“The result is that one day one you are able to go into your own business, in a fully operational office, and hit the ground running; that gives you a real advantage over starting up on your own.”

Laura’s business, Whurk Recruitment is based in Darlington and offers a range of temporary and permanent staffing solutions to clients from a wide range of sectors across the North East.

Whurk Recruitment opened in April 2013 and Laura is delighted with what the business has achieved since launch.

“When we launched I had a plan, I knew where I wanted to take the business to and we are well on our way to achieving that.

“You can’t be afraid of hard work, I am the business owner but I am still doing the same job as I did when I was a consultant.

“If you have the work ethic and the ability to grow a desk then with The Recruit Venture Group’ support you can launch and grow a successful and profitable business.”
