Looking out of our office in Cheltenham this morning, we’ve seen a steady increase in traffic as we build up to the first race of the Cheltenham Festival. Just as Cheltenham is getting busier, so is business. We’ve noticed a steady but significant increase in meetings, interviews, and job vacancies over the past month, and have taken on a number of high profile clients. This increase in market activity doesn’t seem to be restricted to AltoVenus – recent employment figures show that the private sector employment has been hiring substantially in the weeks since Christmas – and all the indications are that this trend will increase over the next quarter. Particular drivers of growth in Q1 have been the advent of Solvency II, with increased demand for project and change management consultants, and increased concerns about information security driving demand for software engineers with expertise in secure systems. We anticipate this demand growing through April and May.
