The inaugural Entrepreneur Wales Awards, produced by the organisers of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards and the publishers of Fresh Business Thinking, is a national celebration of entrepreneurship and has welcomed in excess of 230 applications from businesses and entrepreneurs across Wales.
JVP supports employers across the UK with an innovative recruitment advertising solution, which includes employer branded ad writing, multiple job board advertising, a time saving applicant management system and testing solutions. JVP have been shortlisted for both the Service Industries and Micro Business Entrepreneur of the Year award, for their commercial and critical success attained through high and sustained customer satisfaction.
HR Director of Boots Hearingcare said: "JVP has enabled Boots Hearingcare to attract the best people, not only for our support office but for all our retail stores across the UK. Cath and her team provide a first class expert recruitment service and have provided us with quality recruitment consultancy advice, despite us giving them extremely tight deadlines – none of which they failed to deliver against. They have the unique ability to be external recruitment specialists who feel like they work in my team."
Founder and Managing Director of JVP Group, Cath Harrison said: “We are delighted to have our core values and innovative solutions recognised, and client satisfaction will remain at the forefront as we continue to grow.”
The short-listed entries are now being considered by an all-star line-up of Welsh entrepreneurial minds including Hayley Parsons, founder and former CEO of Go Compare and Jonathan Davies, editor of Fresh Business Thinking.
Francesca Russell, founder of the Entrepreneur Wales Awards, said: “The Awards Ceremony itself, which is being held at the National Museum on November 12th will be a night to remember, with VIPs from the world of business and entrepreneurship gathering to celebrate the entrepreneurial spirit in Wales.”
Economy Minister, Edwina Hart said: “Entrepreneurs are vital for creating growth and jobs in the Welsh economy. I am always impressed by the talented and hard working entrepreneurs we have in Wales and these awards recognise and celebrate the role they play. The Welsh Government is a pro-business government and supports our entrepreneurs to create a more prosperous Wales.”
