“When lockdown happened, it was a difficult time for everyone. I had to furlough my staff and tried to keep going for the first few weeks. However, as our clients were no longer recruiting, I had to make the difficult decision to furlough myself and temporarily close the business.

“It was one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make, but I knew that it was the best thing to do at that stage.”
