A year of success: Zodeq looks back at 2023

  Published: 19th December 2023

The team at Zodeq are celebrating the end of its 7th successful year in business.

An acquisition by financial services provider, Praetura Group in October 2022 meant that Zodeq can finance more businesses than ever before and as a result, we welcomed 100 new clients in the last 12 months.

This new business has, of course, also led to a growth in team members, with an additional 8 new employees joining in the past year, including Sales Director, David Vizard.

Specialist recruitment campaigns

2023 saw Zodeq market to specific recruitment sectors for the first time with the launch of two brand new campaigns.

The first, ‘Taking care of your cash flow’, launched in April and spoke directly to healthcare recruitment agencies – often viewed as a ‘high risk’ sector but one Zodeq is uniquely placed to support due to our ability to provide bespoke finance tailored to the individual company. While ‘Finance that doesn’t byte’, a campaign aimed at recruiters who specialise in the tech industry, went live in September, and continues to be enthusiastically received by the sector.


The Zodeq team proudly came together again this year to support numerous charities. In March, Managing Director, Paul alongside Relationship Manager, James and Business Relationship Manager, Michelle, took on both the Chester 10K and Chester Half Marathon in aid of the Countess of Chester’s Blue Skies Appeal. Between them they raised over £1000 and were presented with a medal in recognition of their outstanding support.

Memberships and sponsorships

Other notable events in 2023 included Zodeq joining UK Finance as an Invoice Finance and Asset Based Lending Member. While September saw Zodeq’s annual sponsorship of the Recruiter Awards’ Best New Agency category.

After a fantastic 2023, packed with both business and personal highlights, we are looking forward to Christmas, and, of course, the exciting events in the pipeline in 2024.
