Siobhan Courtney, managing director and founder of The Eventus Recruitment Group, is delighted to be a finalist for the Inspirational Woman Award at the 2022 Enterprise Vision Awards (EVAs).

Siobhan overcame cancer after being diagnosed with bone cancer in her left leg, when her first daughter was just six weeks old. After months of chemotherapy, she returned to work in recruitment to be met with comments like “Please wear your wig in the office it upsets people” or “You must take leave for your scans”. These were the main motivators for Siobhan wanting to set up her own recruitment business.

In 2008, The Eventus Recruitment Group was founded – the lifestyle business that Siobhan had dreamt of, offering flexibility for all staff. Initially all her consultants worked from home across the UK, but after requests she opened up the Lancaster office in 2019 and the Wilmslow office in 2021.

This enables her staff to choose where to work – whether that be office-based, home-based or hybrid. Siobhan has regular conversations with her team about employee benefits to ensure they are rewarded and fulfilled in their work.

Furthermore, Siobhan and her team campaign for improved working conditions and employee benefits in the Legal, Finance and HR sectors – the sectors the Eventus Recruitment Group specialise in.

Siobhan Courtney said: “I’m delighted to have been named a Finalist of the Inspirational Woman Award of such a prestigious awards ceremony. I would like to thank everyone who nominated me and everyone for the messages of support.

“I worked in corporate recruitment firms for many years and became increasingly frustrated by the unnecessary bureaucracy for flexible working and wanted to work for a business that reflected this. After being in discussions for 6 months with a certain “dragon” from Dragons Den, I decided to set up on my own to create the “lifestyle business” that appeared to be so looked down upon by the industry. Although it took me a few years to do it, I knew I had to do it to stop others being treated how I was.”

Outside of work, Siobhan is committed to fundraising for the Bone Cancer Research Trust and raising awareness of the rare cancer. She also speaks at conferences to promote Women Leaders after cancer and has just become a Non-Executive Director of the Lancaster Chamber of Commerce. In addition the Eventus Recruitment Group sponsors Typhoons RUFC, Lancashire’s inclusive Rugby club.

The EVAs award ceremony will take place at the Winter Gardens, Blackpool on Friday 23rd September 2022.
