The Business Connection celebrates its 21st birthday!

On 31st October 1988 Kirsty Craig opened the doors for business and The Business Connection was born!

In those days it was just Kirsty, a telephone, an old Apple Mac computer and a vision – to provide a first class recruitment service to local and national companies, and build a reputation for excellence, reliability and straightforward, uncomplicated solutions.

Over the last 21 years the face of The Business Connection has changed – we now have 6 branches across the northwest, 20 employees, networked PCs and web based applications – but have never lost sight of the vision (we do still have the old Apple Mac in a cupboard – one day it will be an antique!) building solid, long term relationships with both clients and candidates is as important to the business today as it was at the beginning.

Back in 1988 The Business Connection was one of just 4 agencies in Chester.  Today, numbers exceed 75 though The Business Connection can confidently claim to be the longest established agency in Chester, given that those agencies here 21 years ago no longer exist today.

Kirsty has always believed that The Business Connection is only as successful as those that work within it.  At the heart of this success is a commitment to providing the training, support and encouraging environment needed for her team to thrive, both personally and professionally.  Every single member of that team has an important part to play in the overall success of the company, and in preserving its reputation for being the best at what it does.
