Commenting on the business growth, Tom White said: “While 2020 and the pandemic sent shockwaves around the world, we saw in our area of the sector that people hunkered down and consolidated what they were doing. The result a year on is an explosion in innovation and R&D projects coming to the market – all requiring technical and engineering expertise alongside the need for tech sector support staff.”

“We have also seen a boom in the need for video and adaptive Wi-Fi solutions, caused by the large numbers of people now working from home.

“The world is rapidly opening back up again. We are now seeing a surge in certain areas of technology which has allowed us to grow the business. We had a record year last year which enabled us to create many new jobs in our hometown of Bristol and further afield. This year looks set to be another strong year and we’re very focused on providing world-leading talent consultancy to our clients.”
