Recruit Ventures supports launch of industrial and driving agency
Recruit Ventures has supported the launch of Ancora Recruitment, a recruitment business based in Bristol owned by entrepreneur Ian Hope.
Hope, formerly a sector branch manager at Best Connections, has more than 30 years’ driving and industrial experience in the recruitment marketplace with an excellent local reputation.
Ancora Recruitment which began trading on 10th October 2016 will specialise in the provision of temporary recruitment to the industrial and driving industry throughout Bristol and the South West.
“I am delighted to finally be here, opening the doors to my own recruitment business which without the financial and back office support provided by Recruit Ventures would never have been possible,” said Hope (pictured).
He added, “Having worked within the industry for over 30 years, I had considered, on many occasions setting up on my own but was never fortunate enough to be in the position to have the financial capital available. After hearing from a former colleague how Recruit Ventures had supported them with the launch of their own business, I was intrigued to find out more.
"The business package they offer is legendary, 100% funding, guaranteed salary from day one and a full back office support function so I can focus entirely upon what I do best – recruitment.“
John Buckman, chairman of Recruit Ventures, said, “We are delighted to support Ian in his new recruitment business venture said From my initial meeting with Ian, I could sense that his passion and drive would quickly turn his concept into a profitable agency, with us being able to provide the investment and back office support he needs to get going. He can now focus what he does best, recruitment and build a reputable agency.”
This is the 38th joint venture since our launch in 2011 and have achieved in the past twelve months £130m worth of sales and 6.1m in owner profits.
