Outside of the standard facts of this business, I have maintained a close working relationship with the MD (who is a loyal well-respected individual with in this sector) and directors for over 10 years and have seen them double in size and capability in this time.

They really are a superb company to work for and with. The MD and all the directors really take the time to get to know everyone in the company and continually look at ways to develop people to their maximum potential.
