About the employer

We are a small group of dedicated professionals who love what we do. We have served our time working for major plc's and top 100 companies; sadly we believe that the 'big boys' have had their day. How often are you let down by major suppliers? Can you name a single utility or telecoms provider - or even a bank nowadays - who is trying to do anything other than provide rich pickings for themselves and their shareholders.
