Paul Day explains: ‘the Board are delighted to be reporting such a strong, sustained performance on all fronts. The factors that have contributed towards this stellar performance are as important as the numbers themselves, such as the improvement in GP/EBITDA conversion, the contract vs perm gross profit ratio at 84/16 (%), and the truly exciting clutch of long term contracts that have been secured.  Naturally the whole company is buoyed by these results and the tremendous progress of the Group as a whole, including the substantial investments we’ve made.  With four months to go until our 2017 year end we believe we’ll firmly achieve our forecast, which will see the company realise major milestones; not least breaking the £100m revenue barrier for the first time.’

Co-founder and Group Director James Strickland concluded: ‘we are so proud of the whole Group; all three businesses within the Group are performing extremely well, and with the help of our management board, we’re confidently forecasting further growth well beyond industry norms.’
