Verve Recruitment CIC – Directors & Ambassadors

Val Hogan - CEO Verve Recruitment

Val Hogan

Founder of Verve Recruitment CIC

Verve Recruitment CIC was initially set up for Foster Care Recruitment aimed at the Not for Profit sector. I had worked in recruitment for a very large Independent Fostering Agency, and whilst I loved my job, the ethos of the company didn’t fit. So, I put my money where my mouth is, cashed in my pension and set out to prove to myself, yes there is another way. This way is the Verve way. 

Thank you to Verve Director, Vicky Galligan for her patience and time in producing this podcast.
