The acquisition allows leading property recruitment consultancy to strengthen its holistic suite of talent solutions.

London, UK - April 2023: The deverellsmith group, the London based recruitment & talent solutions partner for the property industry, announced that it has acquired the entire issued share capital of Daisy Chain.

Daisy Chain is an online platform where professionals can match + connect with flexible employers to enhance their careers and work-life balance. Originally, the platform focused on supporting returning parents (specifically mums) to find work whilst being able to balance childcare and employment.

The platform now supports any individual who requires flexible employment across all industries.

Louise, Founder of Daisy Chain, commented: “I am thrilled to be handing over the leadership of Daisy Chain to the deverellsmith group so that it can reach its fullest potential.

I created Daisy Chain to respond to my struggles finding flexible work and hearing my fellow mothers battle to secure jobs that could cover childcare costs and offer some flexibility.

Despite the progress that has been made in terms of attitudes towards flexible working, there is still much work to be done in terms of helping working parents and maximise the opportunity for both employers and employees alike.”

The acquisition of Daisy Chain supports deverellsmith customers in making smarter, faster decisions. The platform provides a cost-effective technological solution to the UK employment market in not just promoting diversification of talent but streamlining the attraction process.

Andrew Deverell-Smith, Founder and CEO of the deverellsmith group commented: “The acquisition of Daisy Chain fits into deverellsmith’s strategy to provide a holistic suite of talent solutions which stimulate positive change.

Daisy Chain already has a proven track record in connecting flexible employers with world-class talent who are seeking a job opportunity which accommodates their lifestyle.

I encourage any individual seeking flexible employment to register for the platform where they can confidently match + connect with likeminded employers.”
