Semester secures £250k financing
Leading health and social care recruitment firm Semester Recruitment has secured a £250,000 funding line from Positive Cashflow Finance (“Positive”).
Semester had worked with a bank owned funder since 2009, but moved to Positive who were better able to meet their funding requirements.

Nicola Jenkinson, director at Semester Recruitment, said: “We have been looking for a more flexible and supportive lender to work with as the business grows. Positive fits the bill perfectly. They have demonstrated a real understanding of our values and our growth ambitions and have given us the financial flexibility to focus on achieving our aims.”
David Smith, managing director at Positive,added: “The recruitment industry is dynamic and competitive, so we are pleased to have been able to provide Semester with this invoice finance solution. I am confident that it will enable the team to focus on their growth strategy and free up cash to invest in the business and spur on growth.”
Semester, which employs 7 staff, had a turnover of £1.3million last year.
Positive works with businesses and provides funding facilities from £10,000 to £1million to improve working capital, fund acquisitions and accelerate growth. It has offices in Manchester, Basingstoke and Birmingham.
