Business Name: J Finch & Associates Ltd
Support Received: Virtual Office via Harlow Enterprise Hub
Joan Finch of J Finch & Associates Ltd has found that a virtual office through the Harlow Enterprise Hub is the perfect business solution for her employment services business.
Primarily offering employment services to SME’s who do not necessarily have a HR function, J Finch & Associates Ltd tailor their services to meet the client’s needs. Essentially they offer a pay as you go service, and bespoke the employment materials to ensure clients work in line with the business requirements, as well as helping them to remain compliant with current employment legislation.
We spoke to Joan about her business start-up.
What was your motivation for starting your own business?
Having started in HR in 2002 I really enjoy the challenges it brings. In my last role I headed up the company’s Employee Relations team and enjoyed the various challenges and opportunities this brought – everything from Employment Tribunals and change projects, to running 24hr helplines for Managers and Directors.
I wanted to continue to do what I am passionate about. I mirrored my business to reflect my role, and fine-tuned my business services over time through client feedback and listening to business requirements.
