The history behind VN Recruitment

Laura originally founded VN Recruitment as she wanted to build an honest, fair, and caring service to both candidates and clients alike. Striving to work differently from any of the other recruitment agencies at that time (2015.)

She is originally from Yorkshire and grew up in a Village in the middle of nowhere surrounded by beautiful farmland and animals. Throughout childhood, Laura was always outdoors, and you’d most likely find her walking the dogs, horse riding or playing sports.

Laura is very people-oriented, with a real passion for helping others. Day to day she enjoys working with others who have similar interests and hobbies to her. It may sound cliché, but she really loves her job.

Laura went to university in Newcastle where she studied Business and HR at Northumbria University. Before she had even graduated, she was scouted to work in Manchester in an IT Recruitment Company- which she thoroughly enjoyed.

However, she really missed Yorkshire and consequently returned!

On return to York, she was offered an opportunity within a (Human) Healthcare Recruitment Company. On her first day they gave her the challenge of building their Veterinary Recruitment Sector from scratch (before she started there, they hadn’t even spoken to a surgery or candidate!)

Whilst working here, Laura realised she couldn’t offer the niche recruitment service that she still strives for now.

This is where the dream of VN Recruitment originated! She hasn’t looked back since. VN Recruitment proudly celebrated our 8th Birthday on 13th April this year!

Outside of work, Laura spends a lot of time exploring the outdoors with Archie Buss, spending time with family, going to the gym, and competing in strong woman competitions. Otherwise, you’ll likely find her with her other half, watching rugby!
