With the rapid expansion of the business and an ever increasing number of enquiries from potential clients, the Principal now wishes to recruit an experienced person to join him on this exciting journey.  He believes this business can expand rapidly, so this a brilliant opportunity for an ambitious person to join the company “on the ground floor” and grow with it.
