The whole C&C team is delighted to announce that our founder, Lucy Chamberlain, has been selected as a finalist in this year’s National Business Women’s Awards.  Lucy joins a host of other inspirational female leaders in the Business Woman of the Year – Small category.

This recognition is an exciting milestone for C&C Search as we continue to shine a light on the untapped talent pool that support staff offer to organisations.  As our all-female team of 17 grows, this year saw us place our 1,400th candidate.

Lucy comments, “When I founded C&C, I’d been through a challenging three years as a single mum. I was single-handedly responsible for my daughter financially, emotionally and physically. Approaching my late 30s, I realised that each day I felt out of alignment; I wanted to provide a more positive role model for my daughter. So, I created a business which was not only financially viable, but also deeply connected to my values, goals and chosen working environment.”

As the destination recruiter for London in our space, C&C continues to create new platforms for our candidate and client communities. Most recently these include a series of client masterclasses, as well as our new PA Hub Event Series. Lucy engenders a culture based on our core company values: authenticity, purposeful, nurturing and progressive.

“I aim to be an ambassador for the people who really make companies successful; the people who ensure that the companies run smoothly at their foundation. I understand that nurturing and encouraging all members of staff holistically creates happy and productive workers at the very level which has the most impact on a company’s success.”

“As a passionate advocate for female founders and leaders, I wish everyone in these awards success. It’s an honour to be included as a finalist.”
