Stafffinders CEO recognised by Family Business United

Posted: 30th January 2024

In a recent initiative by Family Business United, the invaluable contributions of women in family firms across the UK are being celebrated through a dedicated campaign. This initiative aims to shine a spotlight on the remarkable achievements of women, both family members and non-family members, who are making a significant impact in the vital sector of family businesses.

We are delighted to share the exciting news that Stafffinders’ very own CEO, and the driving force behind the recruitment agency, Jane Wylie-Roberts, has been acknowledged in the annual report compiled by Family Business United. Her remarkable leadership skills, commitment to innovation and advocacy for family businesses have earned her a well-deserved place in this important report.

As our CEO, Jane has consistently demonstrated exceptional leadership qualities that have propelled the family business to new heights. Her vision, strategic thinking, and ability to inspire and motivate her team have been instrumental in their success and have carried on the legacy her father began in 1971.

As Stafffinders celebrate this well-deserved recognition for Jane, they also extend their congratulations to all the women who have been acknowledged in the Family Business United campaign. Their stories are inspiring and highlight the integral role that women play in the triumph and sustainability of family businesses across the UK.
