New business partner for Recruit Ventures
Thorne and Wait Recruitment Specialists has launched its business with the financial support of Recruit Ventures.
Based in Kidlington, Oxfordshire, Thorne and Wait will specialise in driving, industrial and commercial recruitment led by directors, Steve Thorne and Wesley Wait.
Thorne and Wait have over 30 years’ industry knowledge between them.
David Simons, managing director for Recruit Ventures, commented, “Steve and Wesley are clearly enthusiastic, focused and driven in the world of recruitment which is what we look for within our business partners.
“From our initial meeting with them at the start of the year, I could detect a strong desire to develop a forward thinking business and clearly an excellent opportunity for us to invest.”
Thorne and Wait first approached Recruit Ventures for support in setting up their business after they heard about the opportunity from another business partner.
Thorne said, “After two years of thinking about the idea. Wesley and I decided now was the right time both professionally and personally to launch our own recruitment business.”
“Having thought about going it alone, we quickly realised that we are face to face people and are not specialised in the back office function of setting up a business. When Recruit Ventures explained that they would take care of everything from IT, HR, payroll, marketing etc. and provide ongoing support, we knew then that this was an opportunity not to be missed.
“We are very excited, if not a little nervous but we are confident in our abilities and not only do we have a point to prove to ourselves that we can do this and be successful but also to our families and to Recruit Ventures who have invested within our business.”
Wait added, “Having worked for other recruitment companies for over 15 years, I could see many good reasons why it was the right time for us to take that leap and become our own boss.
“We have an excellent local reputation so it was an obvious decision to put our names to our business and position our office just outside Oxford. With its excellent transport links and accessibility, we hope to quickly attract new clients and candidates alike.”
Thorne and Wait Recruitment Specialists began trading on Monday 9th May 2016.
