“I actually think our performance post-Covid will be tremendous because it’s opened people’s minds on how they want to work.”

Over the last 3 years, the firm has grown its turnover from £675,000 in 2016/17 to £1.5m last year. They’re expecting this year’s turnover for be £2m and are targeting £3m next financial year.

“We were originally based in Swinton but in 2017 we decided we needed to move to the city centre to improve staff recruitment and retention and it worked,” added Hall.

“In July 2018 we took space at WeWork in St Peter’s Square but the next natural step was having our own office and Hanover House gives us that. It’s the perfect base as we continue to grow.”
