From start up to business growth - Discovery Park key to Wave Search success
Posted on 24/03/17
It’s been quite a year for Digital, Consulting and Fintech industry recruiters Wave Search – with the choice of Discovery Park as its office base playing a key role in its success to date.
Over the past 12 months the business has transformed from a small recruitment start-up to becoming strategic recruitment partners for several global, multi-billion dollar organisations including KPMG, AON, Tata, Cognizant and Nationwide Building Society.
The company was formed in June 2015 by Gareth Jones, after he spent nine years working in the capital for an international recruitment firm.
“I was living in Deal and commuting to London daily,” explained Gareth.
“So when I decided to set up my own business, it was important to find a corporate but friendly environment that was well connected to London and reflected the calibre of clients and candidates that Wave represent.” “There are great facilities at the park,” Gareth continued.
“There’s a certain level of professionalism here at Discovery Park that was difficult to find in other offices and business hubs locally.
“Setting up a new business can be a daunting task but the support from the Discovery Park team was great and the opportunity to build business relationships and collaborate with other small businesses onsite has been fantastic.
Reflecting back on the launch of the business, Gareth said: “Wave Search began life in the Start Up Zone, it was ideal for us and the other businesses still in their early stages.
“Everyone’s business ventures were at a similar stage, there was pleasant community feel, so it really felt like the right place for us at the time. One of the great things about Discovery Park is the option to scale up or down when your business needs it.
“I have only recently moved to my new office which will suit for the next 12 months but, looking ahead, I’ll need upscale again and it’s great to have the options and infrastructure available onsite.”
