A Norwich-based firm of business advisers has expanded its special projects team in response to increasing demand for outsourced support.
Grant Thornton says more companies are looking for services from bespoke project management to support for one-off transactions, particularly in times of change or challenge. In response to the demand, its recently-restructured special projects team has trebled in the past three years.
Grant Thornton partner Giles Mullins, who heads up the team, said uncertainty and change could pose problems for firms, while recruitment for individual projects was often not financially viable.
“Businesses experiencing rapid growth often face difficulties in recruiting the right people with the right skills at short notice, especially given the ongoing talent shortage which makes quality, experienced individuals, particularly in finance, hard to find,” he said.
