However, we planned for it well and have come through with flying colours. Business levels are increasing month on month and profits are at a record high. It is great therefore to be in a position to announce recruitment plans and especially for such significant new roles that are clearly the product of our continued success.

Both individuals will need to be commercially focussed motivational and highly driven in order to complement the existing team. They are challenging roles but I know that the successful candidates will find them highly rewarding.”
