Our people

People are always surprised to learn we work with a core of only five people. Through the use of freelancers and contractors, our business remains nimble, competitive and adaptable in contrast to other organisations. We are a flexible and fair employer and have strong staff retention with core team members having been with the business for over 8 years. Each month we contract up to 18 people but all are managed by our small but perfectly formed team.
