By Mark Hayhurst 30 Jul 2019
Crafter's Companion is celebrating the first half of an impressive year by hitting the 200 staff mark.
This year alone, the company has employed a total of 28 people across its marketing, TV, trade, warehouse and product development teams, in addition to its retail stores to support its ambitious global growth strategy.
As part of the growth plans, Crafter’s Companion has also invested in developing its UK, US and new EU ecommerce websites, its video-selling platforms and its in-house TV studio.
Sara Davies MBE, founder of Crafter’s Companion, said: “At the beginning of the year, we announced that our US team was moving to a larger head office space because it had outgrown its premises ahead of time and we’ve also experienced outstanding growth here in the UK. Therefore, our recruitment strategy to support the company has become integral to our ongoing evolution.
“We have been expanding our team on a global scale and the calibre of staff that we have at Crafter’s Companion is phenomenal. As an employer, I am so proud that we are able to continue to recruit so many amazing people who believe in the company and are actively invested in its vision to create inspirational, educational products for craft enthusiasts everywhere.
“Three years ago, we announced that we had hit the 100 staff mark and the fact that we now have double that amount in such a short space of time is so overwhelming but absolutely fantastic.”
