Celebrating 10 years – The highs, the lows and a look to the future
Adversity often brings out the best in people. We know more about that than most. We started Big Sky Additions ten years ago in the midst of a global recession. We knew it would be hard, and it was. But we made it through the tricky first few years which are often the most difficult for any new business. Combined with the after-effects of a recession bigger than any for a whole generation, the odds were stacked against us. Then things started to look better and our business began to grow and thrive mainly through referrals and recommendations as a reward to high levels of service and care.
Yet here we are 10 years later looking down the barrel at more uncertain times. No one really knows the extent of the recession that will inevitably follow the pandemic but few doubt that it is coming. However, we remain strong and resolute that our business can survive and indeed stand firm during the tough times ahead. After all, we have made it this far.
What gives us our confidence?
We’re confident in our ability to ride out the storm because we think, no – we know, we’re different from other recruitment services. Our professional and honest services combined with our knowledge of the accountancy job market set us apart and this has been proven time and time again. We can help your business to find the right staff for the position with a minimum of fuss. Whether it’s a permanent or temporary solution you’re looking for, we work hard to match our candidates’ skills to your needs, with many of these candidates well known to us for over a decade and our knowledge of them beyond the content of a CV.
We know all too well the common complaints against agencies. It was avoiding these pitfalls that led us to start the business in the first place – and how we were able to grow through the tough times. We always listen to our clients’ needs and avoid the rigid scattergun approach. For our candidates, we are careful to provide them with the right interview materials and feedback.
This is what makes us one of the leading specialist accountancy recruiters in Norfolk. And proud of it.
What the recession will bring…
The Financial Crisis that began in 2008 came out of the blue. Caused by sub-prime lending in the US housing market, the consequences rippled around the world. The banking sector almost collapsed and every industry was affected. Some only survived by the skin of their teeth.
The impending recession is a different kind of beast. Caused by a biological event, it is not man-made as such. However, the fact we know it is coming has given us all some time to prepare. You need to get measures in place now to see out what’s coming. That means getting the right staff in place to give you the tools to not only survive but thrive. We can help you do just that so get in touch to find out how.
No matter what the financial conditions, having the right people on board is the most important thing. It’s why we’re 100% sure we can take on the challenges that are coming. Our aim is to help you do the same. Get in touch to find out what we can do for you.
