‘The people and salary! We work in a great team and the harder we all work, the more money we all make! Mixture of days in and out of the office – we manage our own time. Walking around in London in the rain!’

‘Team Atmosphere – We are all great friends. Training – Exceptional, I have very few friends who receive the level of training we do, it’s incredible and regular. Family Culture – The business is still under full ownership by Brian, who started the business 22 years ago. Hierarchy / Management – The business has a very flat structure, meaning all management are easily accessible, and more importantly, approachable. Can Do Attitude / Customer Service – We deliver as we promise, and everyone in the business is passionate about doing so. And the best best best thing…. Money – We are rewarded financially for our achievements, and rewarded well! Long Hours – We work long hours, but we are in Sales, so we want to work long hours! Growing Fast – It’s going to be a challenge for the business to keep the family feel, and culture as we continue to grow as fast as we are! I think the management are up to the challenge though, so look forward to growing with the company!’
