Flexology makes two senior appointments
Bristol-based Flexology, which is run by business partners Kristal McNamara and Shelley Snelson, saw a 402% increase in turnover between 2017 and 2018. Following this growth, the company has appointed Lena Smeaton as a senior account manager and Samantha Furley as its marketing manager.
Smeaton will manage the company’s expanded client and candidate base. Furley joins from law firm Barcan+Kirby.
The company has a double specialism: Consulting with businesses to develop a flexible working culture; and placing staff into flexible roles at a senior professional level.
Snelson said, “We are increasingly seeing more employers understanding the evidence; that flexible working attracts and retains staff as they are happier, healthier and more productive.
“We have also seen an increase in repeat business from our existing clients due to our continued success working with them.
“The world of work is changing, with an increased focus on flexible working and staff wellbeing, and we regularly talk as subject matter experts on this at key events. Our recruitment business has seen a period of huge growth, but we are also excited to be working with a number of businesses on our consultancy work, introducing more flexible working to their existing business.
“We are highly optimistic about the future, creating a substantial change to the world of work for new and existing staff in Bristol and the South West and helping businesses to create the environment to attract and retain talent.”
McNamara added, “We’re delighted about the progress of the company and the appointments of Lena and Samantha, together with our move to Berkeley Square, is a significant moment for us.
“Lena has 30 years of business experience and has worked across many industries, with customer and client service as a key focus. Samantha brings a range of professional services expertise to our branding and marketing and we are also looking forward to her taking forward our event, research and innovation work.
“We’re building a great team and looking forward to adding to it further over the coming months and years.
“We are also pleased to be in new offices, after six successful months in the offices of NatWest in Temple Quay. We wanted to find a large open plan office in which to grow our team and our location in Berkeley Square gives us a space, surrounded by other businesses, to enable us to continue to build our team and community.
“One of our key company values is client partnership and it’s great that we are also conveniently close to the city centre, where most of our clients are based, to enable us to meet with them regularly.”
