The Recruitment Duo are now the faces and a featured case study of a Government report “Investing In Women Code” 2023 and their associated website the Invest In Women Hub.
Following a review of female entrepreneurship in March 2019, known as The Rose Review, it was recognised if talented women business owners were given access to more financial resources and support in order to scale up and grow their businesses, it would generate an extra £250 billion value to the UK economy. In response to the findings the Government launched a landmark initiative, to promote greater transparency in the UK funding allocation through the creation and promotion of the “Investing In Women Code”, to spearhead female entrepreneurship, which produces an annual report.
The Recruitment Duo, were selected as a 2023 case study after being submitted by their
business banking partner Metro Bank to highlight a successful women led business, who were able to scale up their business through an initial start up loan through the British Business Bank. During the process with the Department for Business and Trade, they requested to use an image of the 2 Directors Holly Vaughan and Louise Dunn as the face of this year’s report, which has been widely circulated through national media.
Louise Dunn, Co-Founder and Director of The Recruitment Duo commented “We are enormously proud of our achievements so early into our business owner journey. Seeing our faces and case study featured as part of a Government campaign is an incredible accolade, and has empowered us further to use our platform to support other women business owners. Through my position on the Executive Committee for the Solihull Chamber of Commerce, I have the opportunity to engage and be inspired by many successful business women in Solihull, under a strong female leadership team. I hope to continue to wave the flag for women led businesses locally.”
