Anna has a confession: she used to be part of a big problem. A few years ago, she was a recruiter – and a pretty successful one at that – but she did nothing to make the recruitment process more inclusive. Then two life-defining moments happened.
The first was seeing her husband Dexter, then 27, navigate the debilitating inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn’s. He became seriously ill overnight, had a life-saving operation and needed a new way of working. The second (and third) was the arrival of their daughters Lily and Betsy, who shook up life as they knew it.
Suddenly there was a need for part-time hours, flexible shifts and a different way of working outside the full-time narrative – but those jobs were hard to find. Anna knew they weren’t the only ones. Something had to change.
Taking her 14 years’ experience with her – plus a fresh perspective – Valued was born and the recruitment revolution began.
