Independent recruitment specialists mark major business milestone


A leading independent recruitment firm is celebrating a proud 15 year milestone anniversary as it reveals an insight into the hybrid impact the pandemic has had, and continues to have across the board.

Headed up by Charlotte Owen and Vikki Yarwood, CV Recruitment, based in Stoke-on-Trent, works with an ever growing list of companies, ranging from small businesses to Blue Chip organisations, in Staffordshire, Cheshire and surrounding areas.

The two friends at the helm, who have a combined experience of over 20 years in the recruitment industry, have witnessed several shifts in recruitment behaviour during Covid.

They include seeing many more temporary jobs available than is the norm to cope with demand in certain fields, including home deliveries and warehouse operatives, and revealed many were taken up by self-employed workers to make ends meet as well as alleviate boredom.

Now companies are turning to CV Recruitment to help it adapt to changes, including the new hybrid approach to recruitment of digital and face-to-face, to help organisations redefine their workforce as the country continues to recover from the pandemic’s fallout.

Plans to expand workforce and increase partnerships in the near future

While the friends are celebrating their key anniversary, they have also revealed plans in the pipeline to expand their team “in the near future”, as well as to partner with more businesses as the industry continues to reawaken with fervour.

With a love of working in recruitment, mum-of-three Vikki says it was a natural career step to set up CV Recruitment, which is one of the leading independent recruitment agencies in the region.

She said:

“Where have the last 15 years gone?!

“We’re very proud of what we’ve achieved with CV Recruitment - although its gone so very quickly.

“We are just so delighted to be celebrating over 15 years growth and success.

“We love making people’s dreams a reality whether it’s finding and securing that dream job or an employee getting the best and right person for the right job.”

Looking forward to the next 15 years of growth and success

Charlotte said:

“We’re excited for the next 15 years to accomplish so many more milestones in our business and we look forward to partnering with more businesses where we can benefit with their need to recruit and recruit well with staff for the long term.

“We plan to recruit additional members to the team in the near future.”

CV Recruitment’s vision is to always be open, honest, flexible and friendly and deliver an efficient, effective and professional approach to recruitment with a personal and bespoke touch.
