The journey begins...
It’s 2008, the world is feeling the effects of a financial recession, Liverpool is the UK’s City of Culture and Kings of Leon are at number 1.
A 20-year-old Michael Gavin sets up a hospitality recruitment company from a small room in Liverpool. With only one client - Liverpool Football Club - he recruits, trains, and allocates 50 people into retail and hospitality positions. The event is a huge success leading to more bookings and the start of a long-term partnership.
After a few months at the helm, Mike is joined by his former university housemate Paul Marcinkowski and the business picks up a pace. By the end of 2008, we’ve secured 5 major clients and have over 500 Team Members on our books.
