  • Lovewok: one year on

    lovework-logo

    It is hard to imagine that it was only a year ago that I set up Lovework, to connect exceptional people to exciting, high-growth, entrepreneurial businesses.

    Prior to that, I was working in a start-up myself. I fell into this role, having never even considered the possibility of career options in entrepreneurial businesses. Having been so overwhelmed with big brand names when job hunting, it simply hadn’t occurred to me that there might be another path. However, I so loved the challenge, responsibility, autonomy and ownership that came with my start-up role that I decided to set up Lovework, to help others like me find stimulating and fulfilling entrepreneurial careers.

    And what a great year it has been! We have helped just shy of 30 start-ups to find talented individuals for their teams. From wine to pets, extreme sporting events to healthy snacking, it has been an absolute pleasure to work with such exciting and cutting edge businesses as well as with such talented, dynamic and inspirational people.

    We were also fortunate to have had our achievements recognised through picking up a number of awards in 2013. Smarta 100 named us among the 100 most innovative, disruptive and resourceful small businesses in the UK and they nominated me for Female Entrepreneur of the Year. We were voted as Home-based business of the Year in the Simply Business Startups awards and we were named as one of the Top 20 UK Startups to be founded in 2013.

    As far as first years’ go, we could not have asked for much more. And this has all been down to our loyal customers. We have hardly had to do any business development at all since we started and this is because the vast majority of business we receive comes to us as a result of their kind recommendations. It allows us to focus our time on finding talented individuals for their teams as opposed to selling Lovework’s proposition.

    I look forward to an even more successful 2014!

    The first report produced by Alice in her new role at Racontuer Media.

    Alice secured her exciting new job through Lovework and is absolutely flying. Within 3 months of her starting, the fruits of her labour are apparent here. It is so wonderful to see how well she is getting on and to hear how happy she is in her new role. We greatly look forward to reading her next report on Funding Growth!
