New jobs have been created in Charnwood after specialist feedback firm We Love Surveys has relocated the entire company from London. 

The start-up company had been based in London since 2006 but, 12 months ago, opened a second office at the Advanced Technology Innovation Centre (ATIC), at Loughborough University’s Enterprise & Science Park. 

That office has now become their main headquarters after We Love Surveys owner Helen Dargie made the decision to close the London branch at the same time creating new posts here in Charnwood. 

Dargie is confident staff numbers will increase again in due course, signalling the continued growth of the company. 

“We took the decision to close the office in London and move here because we’ve got access to so much more relevant support, such as the university and other businesses located at the ATIC,” said Dargie. 

“Since moving, we’ve taken on two more new starters, so we’re continuing to deliver on our excellent service promise to our clients. 

Product and business development can take a further leap now that We Love Surveys is based entirely in Loughborough. The company is clearly delighted with the local business environment:

“The 12 months since initially opening the Loughborough office has helped us to stabilise as a team and got us in a good place to work with other local businesses, to grow our own offer,” said Dargie. 

“To be able to take people on and grow the business here – we’ve had more client meetings here in the last six months than we had in the last six years – demonstrates it was absolutely the right move to make. 

“We’re in a lovely office, it’s accessible, it’s a nice place for our clients to visit, and that makes us feel so much more professional and together as a business. 

We Love Surveys, whose clients include the likes of the NHS, Day Lewis Pharmacy, Alliance Healthcare, Screwfix and Orange, and have a client base that stretches from the UK to France, Romania, India and Singapore, are experts in point of experience feedback with a strong track record of working in the healthcare and retail industries.
