What we do
In the current climate, many directors are struggling with work overload. The austerity of the past years has dictated that companies make cutbacks and scale down their employee numbers. This loss has consequently left surviving businesses fighting a losing battle with existing workloads, let alone taking on any forward development.
The current COVID-19 crisis has added to these concerns. In many of these circumstances businesses are desperate for an extra pair of skilled and willing hands for any length of time, a day or a week, sometimes two or three months. In other scenarios, businesses just need advice.
As we come out of the first COVID-19 lockdown and approach more uncertainty surrounding the extent of any more restrictions, businesses will have to be leaner and more focused on becoming increasingly competitive to survive. There will be issues over funding, cash flow, recruitment of skill sets, and a redefinition of strategy amidst these remarkably changed times.
And, if that was not enough to consider, we are also fast approaching the end of the Brexit transition period. With even more administration and factors to contend with, international trading, paperwork, tariffs, there is more to come.
This is where we come in. One of our partners can link up with your company for the time frame you require. Their expertise will be best matched to your business’ needs and can help you in any executive capacity.
