The DeverellSmith Group, the London-based recruitment & talent solutions partner for the property industry, announced that it has acquired Daisy Chain, an online platform where professionals can match and connect with flexible employers to enhance their careers and work-life balance.
The acquisition of Daisy Chain allows deverellsmith customers to make smarter, faster decisions. The platform provides a cost-effective technological solution to the UK employment market in promoting the diversification of talent and streamlining the attraction process.
DaisyChain was originally set up to support returning parents, particularly mothers, to find flexible work that facilitates them being able to balance childcare and employment. It has evolved to be able to help any individual who wants a flexible job across all industries.
Speaking about the acquisition, the Founder of Daisy Chain, Louise, said:
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 maximising the opportunity for both employers and employees alike.
DeverellSmith works with small agencies to world-renowned businesses, from housing developers to property managers and investors. The company supports the evolution of hiring strategies and internal capability shaping how real estate recruits, attracts and retains talent. It facilitates recruitment and executive search assignments across the globe by harnessing technology, its data and research function, knowledge of the market and genuine industry connections.
Founder & CEO of Deverellsmith Group, Andrew Deverell-Smith, added:
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 seeking a job opportunity that accommodates their lifestyle. I encourage any individual seeking flexible employment to register for the platform where they can confidently match and connect with like-minded employers.
