Three start-up businesses in Wrexham and Chester have secured investment from entrepreneur Gary Dewhurst, founder of recruitment group Gap Personnel and Chairman of Connah’s Quay Nomads Football Club.

Dewhurst has invested in 3ecruit, POSability and Codersource, which all operate in the recruitment market.

Chester-based 3ecruit, led by Jan Vandewelle, operates as a specialist recruiter to serve the three-dimensional technology, architecture and managed print solutions sectors.

POSability, also based in Chester, is run by Mel Neild and provides candidates with experience in the point of sale, printed and promotional materials sectors.

The third company is Wrexham-based Codersource, led by Maria Moreno, which sources web developers, coders and software engineers for the IT market.

The companies will receive experience and mentorship from Dewhurst, as well as access to Wrexham-headquartered Gap’s back-office capabilities.

They are aiming to grow their workforces to more than 30 employees across the three businesses by 2020.

Gary Dewhurst said: “I am always looking for innovative and scalable young enterprises that can complement my existing collection of business interests.

“3ecruit and codersource, in particular, are part of the technological revolution being experienced by UK industry and will play their part with the continued development of these niche markets through their strong understanding of advanced industries and the talented people that operate in their space.”

Jan Vandewelle, from 3ecruit, added: “Gary’s experience in the recruitment sector is second-to-none and his expertise, combined with support from Gap, will give our business considerable advantage while we are at the start-up stage.”
