Daisy Chain, an online platform where professionals can connect, has been acquired by The deverellsmith group, as the platform provides a cost-effective technological solution to the UK employment market.
“I am thrilled to be handing over the leadership of Daisy Chain to the deverellsmith group so that it can reach its fullest potential. I created Daisy Chain to respond to my struggles finding flexible work and hearing my fellow mothers battle to secure jobs that could cover childcare costs and offer some flexibility. Despite the progress that has been made in terms of attitudes towards flexible working, there is still much work to be done in terms of helping working parents and maximise the opportunity for both employers and employees alike.”Louise, Founder, Daisy Chain
The acquisition allows deverellsmith to strengthen its holistic suite of talent solutions.
“The acquisition of Daisy Chain fits into deverellsmith’s strategy to provide a holistic suite of talent solutions which stimulate positive change. Daisy Chain already has a proven track record in connecting flexible employers with world-class talent who are seeking a job opportunity which accommodates their lifestyle. I encourage any individual seeking flexible employment to register for the platform where they can confidently match and connect with likeminded employers.”Andrew Deverell-Smith, Founder and CEO, the deverellsmith group
Originally, the platform focused on supporting returning parents (specifically mums) to find work whilst being able to balance childcare and employment.
The platform now supports any individual who requires flexible employment within the Build to Rent sector and across all industries.
