Alexander Charles

Top recruitment firm boosts turnover with ‘alternative’ loan

Here at Fleximize we’re proud to be working with many high-calibre SMEs, and Alexander Charles Financial Recruitment is no exception. Although we fund businesses at any life stage, the award-winning firm based in London already had a successful track record of placing professionals in jobs around the world when the owner came to us.

Founded by Kelvin Trott in 2002, Alexander Charles provides specialist recruitment to clients in financial services, property and technology. Kelvin and his team have taken the business to an enviable level of success, resulting in awards such as Recruitment Firm of the Year at the FDs’ Excellence Awards four years in a row.

Alternative Finance First

With the business clearly going from strength to strength, Kelvin grasped the opportunity to expand. But to fuel the growth, he needed funding.

Having placed job seekers at several alternative finance providers Kelvin was already familiar with the sector’s modern approach to funding. Despite having had a business account at a high street bank for over a decade, Kelvin noticed that “the mainstream banking concept is finished for small businesses”. He decided to work with Fleximize to secure a loan.

Lending Has Led to Rise in Turnover

Using a loan from Fleximize, Kelvin launched a new division dedicated to recruitment in the tech industry. Alexander Charles’ turnover grew by 35% over the next year.

Fleximize has staff who not only understand our accounts, but also our business model, and who respond quickly and efficiently to our needs. We are delighted with the service! Kelvin Trott

Here at Fleximize we really look forward to hearing about Alexander Charles’ ongoing success - and we hope to hear news of even more gongs!
