Lyons Personnel Launch in Taunton with Support from The Recruit Venture Group


Great news for south west businesses and local job seekers as new recruitment agency Lyons Personnel opens specialised in the provision of Driving, Industrial and Commercial vacancies.

Lyons Personnel is owned by experienced recruitment specialist Vicki Lyons and is based in Taunton, Somerset.

With over 10 years’ recruitment experience behind her, Vicki decided the time was right to launch her own business having most recently been employed as an Operations Manager in Torquay supporting local logistical, distribution, warehouse and industrial businesses in Taunton and across the South West.

 “I have been doing this job far too long for other people” said Lyons. “Having already established and grown three branches generating great gross profit and growth for former employers, I believe that now it’s my time to reap the benefits of all my hard work and continue to support my family”

Vicki’s has real drive and ambition making her the perfect person to launch her own recruitment businesses but it can be a big decision for any recruiter to make and ultimately raise concerns.

“My initial concern at the start was how I could continue to pay my mortgage and bills, and source the initial capital I needed to launch the business.” said Lyons “I spoke to a former colleague who had successfully launched his own recruitment business with the support of The Recruit Venture Group and quickly learnt that their start up and support package was a no –brainer, it provided everything I needed to start up and grow.”

The Recruit Venture Group provides full funding and back office support to enable entrepreneurial recruiters set up on their own.

“In having that financial support behind me from The Recruit Venture Group, I knew I could meet my personal financial commitments and the start-up process would be managed by experts who truly understand the industry on my behalf. The administration hassle is taken away from me through their back office support package which leaves me to concentrate on what I do best – recruit and sell.

Vicki is the latest joint venture partner to launch her own recruitment business with the funding and support of The Recruit Venture Group.

 “We are delighted to support Vicki launch Lyons Personnel” said Paul Mizen, Managing Director of The Recruit Venture Group. “She has all the attributes we seek from our joint venture partners – perseverance, resourcefulness, open-mindedness and a desire to make her business a success – we wish her the best of luck.”
