Graham Ford started his business, Click2Recruit, with the help of a £10,000 Start Up Loan. Click2Recruit are a recruitment agency based in Tamworth. They recruit for the industrial and driving sector.
Graham decided to start his business after being made redundant from his previous job at a recruitment agency. With 15 years recruitment experience Graham felt he had the skills, knowledge and contacts that would enable him to start his own recruitment agency. But Graham struggled to get any backing from high street banks, fortunately his wife came across an SUL leaflet in the local library and Click2Recruit then became a reality.
The business has been going really well, with figures going up each week. Graham currently works alongside his business partner but would like to take on additional members of staff in the near future. He is also looking to expand into recruiting for the engineering sector.
Graham received mentoring which he described as ‘very useful’ and a ‘brilliant help’. He was so impressed with the scheme that his son has now taken out a Start Up Loan and has successfully started his own accountancy business.
