AN entrepreneur from Gosport has been named as a finalist in this year’s UK Mumpreneur Awards,

Joanna Murchie has been shortlisted in the final 10 for the Best International Business Award for her company CV Essentials and its subsidiary, Military CV Services, out of more than 1,500 nominated companies.

As well as being included for this category, Joanna is also in with a chance of winning the title of The UK’s Inspirational Business Mum 2013.

Formerly a senior executive in the film industry, Joanna gave up her previous career when her children were born, and has since been determined to prove there is another way for mums to return to work without compromising their family life.

CV Essentials was launched in 2011, followed by Military CV Services in 2013 which draws upon her experiences as a navy wife.

She said: ‘I am delighted to have been recognised for my achievements since giving up my previous career. Helping others succeed on their own career path is something I am deeply passionate about, especially those connected to the armed forces.’

The awards are on September 28.
