The Queen’s Award
Enterprise in International Trade
We are proud to announce that we have been awarded the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade.
This is the third time we have been crowned with the award in just over a decade.
Since our previous wins in 2003 and 2009, we have defied volatile market conditions, rapidly growing profits in the UK and overseas. In just eleven years our turnover has increased by over 490 percent - from £61m in 2003 to a forecast £360m in the financial year ending 30 April 2014.
The team has also expanded exponentially in that time, with the workforce trebling from 1,128 to 3,609.
We have established a total of 43 new offices in the last ten years alone, and now operate in 130 countries around the world.
We saw sustained global growth and financial stability throughout the recession, and overseas markets now account for 55 percent of our total turnover.
Vincent Clancy, CEO commented: “Globally, we continue to expand our footprint, while continuing to set the pace in the UK industry - where we have achieved tremendous results.
“Our people are vital to our business and this award is testament to the team’s continued efforts and the partnerships formed with our clients.”
We have a comprehensive graduate and trainee programme to ensure it continues to attract and mobilise the best skills in the industry. We strive to attract the best talent, and in the last 12 months we have brought in more than 259 senior people in the UK. Through our global mobility programme we make the most of our resources, giving staff the opportunity to work on exciting projects in UK and across the globe.
