Our Trusted Associates

From time to time we use trusted associates on engagements.

Associates (contractors) come and go and for that reason coupled with the fact that there are so many in our ‘associate pool’ we don’t maintain credentials profiles for associates on our website.

We prefer to work directly with clients wherever possible and tend to use associates for larger team engagements or for temporary cover if needed.

For solo assignments where we feel someone else (e.g. a trusted associate) is better suited than we are we will simply refer the client to that associate at no cost and taking no payment from either the client or the associate (as we have done on a few occasions) – i.e. a good old fashioned and simple recommendation.

Feel free to drop us a line if you want to know more about how we work with, use or recommend associates.
