Working with us

Our business model is to engage resources on an ‘as-required’ basis, offering clients a fast-responding and cost-effective service. We are able to take on smaller projects, which larger consultancies may find difficult to resource.

In line with our core value of flexibility, there are a number of ways in which to engage our services:

  • Fixed duration contract - recommended for a one-off piece of work.
  • Fixed price contract - recommended for a discrete project.
  • Framework agreement - recommended for when services need to be provided on a regular basis.
