The Chosen Ones30 September 2012
As per my August Blog, CPC is set to expand on the back of a successful inaugural year as an LLP. With 75% of our fees against business plan either secured or sitting in high probability prospects at the end of month 2 we are on target to achieve our 20% planned growth in revenue. This success and expansion brings with it a new challenge – people, our most valued asset. We have prided ourselves on developing a great core team of talented people, but to achieve our growth plans we need to both retain and attract new talent to the business in the coming year.
In a market where SMEs are on the decline and multi-disciplinary consultancies are becoming ever larger and impersonal, I am confident that CPC offers a great home for programme and project management professionals who are seeking involvement in leading edge property and infrastructure projects, and high profile consultancy assignments. Our niche and agile approach is focused on providing tailored solutions to our clients and we are increasingly being recognised as trusted advisors in our core sectors.
Our rigorous selection process means that we only employ the best the market has to offer – "the chosen ones", but we need to cast the net wider to achieve our growth plans. To this end we are embarking on a number of recruitment initiatives to attract people from new and existing markets, as well as supporting apprentice schemes, in line with Government plans, to create opportunities for more junior members of staff to join our business.
