Soho Runners is the brainchild of three friends with experience of the rental side of the business. They identified a gap in the market for a specialist agency that could provide reliable runners.
“We aim to provide a convenient and affordable way for Soho's companies to gain access to high-quality, trustworthy runners,” explained co-founder Spencer Saffer.
“In return, we provide the runners with a competitive wage but also give them the chance to benefit from the vast experience available in Soho's top facilities.”
The agency recruits from universities, but has also grown from word-of-mouth. “As more facilities don't want to commit to full-time staff and people get laid off in Soho, we're finding considerable demand for temporary runners,” said Saffer.
