LiveLink Resource agrees NatWest funding to build business

A new small business which provides outsourcing services for small businesses has agreed a new funding package to support its own growth.

Norwich based, LiveLink Resource have entered into an agreement with NatWest to boost their working capital funding and save money on their operating costs.

LiveLink which is owned by Wendy Norman and operates from Sackville Place in the city provides clients with an outsourcing of administration services. This includes – answering incoming calls, developing relationships through telemarketing and providing back-office support including bookkeeping, copywriting, proof reading and secretarial/administration support. They also provide event services which includes – conference and seminar management, venue sourcing and exhibition presence.

Their market is very much supporting small businesses but their services can also extend to larger businesses looking to save on human capital costs.

NatWest has provided financial support to assist with the company's working capital, providing it with appropriate funding levels and facilities to help in its initial stages of trading. LiveLink have also been supported with advice from The Business Club Norfolk and its chairman Richard Kerrison who knows Wendy well as they are both active in business networking across the county.

Talking about her plans for the future Wendy Norman said: "Starting a business is a hugely exciting if not slightly daunting venture. My business aims to provide that invaluable support that all small businesses need and as a small business owner myself I am only too acutely aware of the work that is involved in the day to day operation of a business. We have made an encouraging start and the interest in our services has been positive. This new funding from NatWest will be very important in this embryonic stage of the business."

Hannah Parker, relationship manager, business banking at NatWest who arranged the funding added: "Wendy has come up with a very interesting business concept aimed at a distinctive market. Outsourcing is a well rehearsed business concept, but this is different as it is aimed at small business owners who really need the kind of service Wendy and her team provide."
