Sharing some for our good work!
“Lovework only sends candidates that are really worth meeting. They’re also a pleasure and not a quick-fix, to work with and I have no hesitation in recommending them.”
(CEO – parkatmyhouse)
“I am so incredibly glad we found you. I’m delighted with the quality of the service you provide. It’s been a genuine pleasure recruiting with your support.”
(Head of Brand – Abel & Cole)
“Lovework has the knack of finding exactly the type of candidate we’re looking for. They combine true understanding of our business’s needs along with a thorough and committed approach to networking and vetting potential recruits. This ensures only the highest calibre and most suitable candidates make it through to us. They have a superhuman ability to find that needle in the haystack we’re looking for!”
(Managing Director and Founder – It's Only Natural)
“Attracting talent is clearly a massive issue for start-ups, and I’m yet to find anyone that does this better than Catherine at Lovework. I have worked with her for more than 5 years and she has placed more candidates than anyone else at Deliveroo. She has a great sense of what is required and more often than not, has the perfect person ready in her network to take on the challenge.”
(Managing Director - Deliveroo)
“Having exhausted all avenues myself many times over the years, I am truly perplexed by Lovework’s unique ability to find such a consistently high calibre of candidates for my business. Their understanding of a brief and culture, and then finding people that match that criteria is second to none. If you’re an entrepreneurial business looking for a recruitment partner and not a quick-fix, I can’t vouch for Lovework enough.”
(Managing Director and Founder – Raconteur Media)
“Lovework have consistently understood the entrepreneurial dynamics and requirements of our businesses when it comes to finding great talent. Having proactively equipped themselves with a good understanding of the business and each roles requirements, they have then consistently provided high calibre, well screened candidates many of whom have been successful in securing roles with our businesses. Great to work with a partner who can deliver so strongly when it comes to finding and attracting good talent into the businesses.”
(CEO Vita Coco/ Founding Partner – BEAR Nibbles)
“Recruitment is the number one problem for any high-growth business and Lovework have played a leading role in helping us meet the challenge. Lovework has a rare combination of commercial nous, contagious enthusiasm and hustle which makes them effective at engaging bright young people and drawing them into orbit around entrepreneurial businesses. Not only that, they have shown a genuine interest in onefinestay and has invested significant time in ensuring that they understand the type of candidate who will be successful here. They have helped us recruit several people who are now playing key roles in the business, and we have every confidence that Lovework will continue to be a key recruitment partner as we grow.”
(CEO & Co-Founder – onefinestay)
“Lovework has been an absolute pleasure to work with. They thoroughly understand the requirements of young, entrepreneurial businesses and are acutely aware that quality candidates are never more essential than at the start-up stage. They have a supreme grasp of our needs for each role so we know that only the most suitable candidates will be presented to us.”
(CEO – Vivid Drinks)
“I highly recommend Lovework if you’re looking for your next career move. Catherine and Lovework are wonderfully astute at matching candidates with roles that perfectly suit their skill set in some of the most exciting start ups and entrepreneurial businesses out there. I felt fully supported and trusted them wholeheartedly throughout the recruitment process. I have now been in my role for almost three years and have enjoyed two promotions along the way – thanks to Lovework I am fulfilling my career potential and still love the business that they placed me in.”

“Lovework are brilliant at what they do. We are a high profile business with an entrepreneurial culture and ambitious plans. It is important that we recruit and develop the most talented people we can in our area. These are exciting times for Bay Media and we look forward to working with Lovework as our business continues to grow.”
(Director – Bay Media)
“The Lovework team have been and continue to be a pleasure to work with. They took the time to understand our business, needs and culture and, it’s because of that that they consistently find great candidates for us. We don’t waste time with candidates that are not a good fit or don’t have the relevant experience. Instead from sales to customer success we receive candidates that are high calibre, properly informed and have been screened for fit.
Catherine and her team are not remotely like other recruiters. They are professional, polite and get results. It is a pleasure working with her.”
(CEO/Founder – Apperio)
“Lovework have been an absolute joy to work with for the team here at Mind Gym. We pride ourselves on the robustness of our recruitment process to ensure we get the best possible talent – Lovework has been a great asset in that regard and has hugely differentiated themselves from many of the other recruitment consultancies we have worked with.
They have fielded some exceptionally high calibre candidates, demonstrating the breadth and quality of their network and search capability. We often find that recruitment consultants don’t ‘get’ us in terms of finding people with the right mix of intellect, experience, character and what we like to call ‘sparkiness’. Lovework worked so hard to make sure they ‘got under our skin’ to understand the nuance of our culture and roles – and then went on to find people that were simply a great match. Even the people we ultimately did not hire provided us with really stimulating interactions – and in some cases lead to different ongoing conversations and relationships with Mind Gym.
With Lovework’s help we have just filled three of our most senior and strategically important roles with fabulous people – we are very excited about what these leaders are going to bring to the next chapter of Mind Gym’s evolution. Lovework has simply delivered when so many other agencies/consultancies were unable to.
On a more tactical level, Lovework is very swift to respond to all interactions and requests – and has been consistently excellent in keeping me appropriately updated throughout what has been a lengthy recruitment period for us. Lovework are highly personable and take a very tailored ‘personal’ approach to all candidates – and to us as a client. They have also been admirable in their honesty – as quick to point out candidates’ flaws/challenges as well as their virtues. In one or two instances further exploration of individuals’ backgrounds/approaches has led Lovework to suggest they might not be right for us (despite the impact on their ultimate commission!)
What Catherine has created with lovework is a great example of a highly talented individual spotting a need in an over-crowded marketplace – and filling that need in a nuanced, meaningful and robust way. I would highly recommend Catherine (and Lovework) to anyone – and only wish she could go global so that they could help us with our searches beyond the UK!”
(Global Head of Solutions – Mind Gym)
“It’s been a joy to work with Lovework on two key strategic hires into our founding team. Not only did they immediately understand our unique needs as a super early stage start-up playing at the intersection of tech, education and talent, but within a few days, they had sourced a diverse stream of exceptional quality candidates, including the needle in the haystack that we were looking for. Everyone that they put forward had an entrepreneurial flair that’s tough to find and a brought new perspective to the business, which meant the whole process was hugely valuable on multiple dimensions. Without a doubt, working with Lovework has been one of the best investments we’ve made.”
(CEO/ Co-Founder – Founders Academy)
“We retain Lovework because they have had a 100% hit rate in finding candidates who fit. In contrast to many recruiters, who try to get you to accept the first candidate they come up with, Lovework have been relentless in learning about our (slightly quirky) culture. The result is that we often have several candidates to choose from, all of whom can do the job and more importantly, will thrive in the Naked culture”
