As our first full year of trading comes to an end we’re thrilled to announce that we have signed our 50th client.
As a team we were already poised to celebrate a great first year and hitting this milestone is the icing on the cake. We have already exceeded our target for the year and with more enquiries still coming in, we are anticipating that end of year results will exceed all expectations.
We have already assisted local and regional businesses by providing working capital of over £25M to SMEs. A figure we’re immensely proud of.
Our 50th new client is Altrincham based recruitment company Rutherford Grant Recruitment. Rutherford Grant specialise in recruiting for the IT and telecoms markets. Although they are based in the North West they recruit for businesses across the UK who are looking for new staff with specialist skills and expertise.
Their Managing Director, Jason Gardiner was looking to switch providers and was introduced to Zodeq by Benjamin Day of Cowgill Holloway Business Funding, a leading firm of chartered accountants and business advisors.
Benjamin Day said: “Having met the team at Rutherford Grant Recruitment and had a chance to understand their business requirements, Zodeq felt like a perfect fit.
“Paul and Zodeq’s experience and specialism in the recruitment sector meant I had no worries about the products suiting the business, having met Paul previously, I knew that they would also get on very well together.”
Jason Gardiner Managing Director of Rutherford Grant has been pleased with the service and the transition to Zodeq. He said, “We were impressed with Zodeq’s approach from day one and their clear expertise in providing facilities in the recruitment sector really stood out. The take on was smooth and all of the team have been great. We see Zodeq as a key partner for us as we continue to grow and develop our business.”
It has been an incredibly busy year first year for Zodeq and as Chester’s first invoice finance company we’re really excited about what we’ve achieved. A growing team, as well as a growing client base! We have become affiliate members of the recruitment trade body APSCo and to qualify for membership, we had to pass a robust assessment process so our membership clearly demonstrates the high standards of service we adhere to.
We’ve also become a strategic member of the West Cheshire and North Wales Chamber of Commerce (WCNW). We hope that through our membership we can get to know even more businesses and be on hand to offer help and support with all aspects of business finance.
The team are now looking forward to making 2018 just as successful!
