    Episode 203: Jane Couper, CEO of Novello, a supplier of medical staff with the NHS

    Episode 203: Jane Couper, CEO of Novello, a supplier of medical staff with the NHS

    Jane Couper is a working mum, a woman on a mission, with a passion for making things better.

    Jane initially worked for a local nursing agency, that supplied nurses to hospitals, care homes and ran a domiciliary care service. She then went to work for Medacs, who were part of the Impellam Group at the time, one of the largest recruitment groups in the UK and now an international provider of Managed Services.

    In 2020, just before the pandemic, Jane purposely chose to join a local company that brought her closer to home and more able to manage the challenges of being a working mum to 2 young children. Owned by a GP, it was an interesting business; they were building their own recruitment software to enable GPs and other primary care healthcare professionals to book their placements on an app.

    Jane was successful in launching the app in August 2021, but the culture of the business wasn't aligned with her values, and this was really important to her. She could see an opportunity to create a sustainable model for the NHS using technology to move away from the traditional recruitment model, and so Novello was born. 2.5 years into their journey they have recently been awarded a place on the NHS framework, allowing them to partner with NHS trusts and support them in their mission to reduce their agency spend.

    Timestamps:

    [Start] How did Novello come to be and how does it work?

    [5:45] What values do you have that meant you needed to leave a company?

    [11:30] The NHS and how it's currently broken

    [14:00] Are you a techie? How did you end up developing an app Jane?

    [15:25] Where are you taking the business today?

    [18:20] What is the recruitment going to look like with your new technology?

    [21:50] When values match up, and when they don't.

    [24:30] If your business had a character or personality, who would it look like?

    [27:00] Do you have any plans to sell the technology on?

    [28:00] Have you got a destiny or dharma?
