Bristol-based Flexology doubles staff numbers and moves to new offices

A pair of flexible employment consultants who set up in Bristol less than two years ago have doubled staff numbers and moved into new offices after quadrupling year-on-year turnover.

Flexible working consultancy Flexology, which is run by business partners Kristal McNamara and Shelley Snelson, saw a 402 per cent increase in turnover between 2017 and 2018.

Kristal and Shelley, who founded the business in March 2017, are now planning to double the size of their business and staff each year for the next three years.

Following the company's growth, the business has moved into offices in Berkeley Square in Clifton after six months in the Entrepreneurial Spark programme atTemple Quay.

Shelley said: “We are increasingly seeing more employers understanding the evidence that flexible working attracts and retains staff as they are happier, healthier and more productive.

“We have also seen an increase in repeat business from our existing clients due to our continued success working with them.

“The world of work is changing, with an increased focus on flexible working and staff wellbeing, and we regularly talk as subject matter experts on this at key events.

"Our recruitment business has seen a period of huge growth, but we are also excited to be working with a number of businesses on our consultancy work, introducing more flexible working to their existing business.

“We are highly optimistic about the future, creating a substantial change to the world of work for new and existing staff in Bristol and the South West and helping businesses to create the environment to attract and retain talent.”

Kristal says she is "delighted" about the progress of the company and is now "looking forward" to growing the business further over the coming months and years.

She added: “One of our key company values is client partnership and it’s great that we are also conveniently close to the city centre, where most of our clients are based, to enable us to meet with them regularly.”
