Team Consulting recruits its 100th employee
Team Consulting has hired its 100th employee to cap a surge in recruitment that has seen numbers almost triple in less than six years.
Eleanor Hughes joins the marketing department as employee number 100. The milestone follows the company’s office expansion earlier in the year and the end of 2016 announcement that Team had transferred into a new employee ownership trust, giving all staff a share in the business.
The medical device development consultancy says demand for its services in design, engineering and human factors continue to increase. The 30-year-old Cambridge consultancy had only 35 staff in 2011.
Team handles a range of projects – including the development of drug delivery devices such as inhalers and auto-injector pens, complex medical systems that assist in surgery and innovative diagnostics equipment.
Andrea Pybus, Team’s HR director, who has road-mapped and overseen recruitment, said: “I joined a company in 2014 with just over 50 talented employees and no HR department! Today we are 100 talented people and it is the power of the whole that is so inspiring.
“Our culture is about continuous improvement and currently we are looking at what it means to further develop our employee ownership ethos to make Team an even better place for our employees to work and to ensure that as a growing company we remain engaged and grounded.”
Dan Flicos, CEO at Team, reflected on the pace of change and development at the company: “Back in 2011 there were 35 employees at Team. At that time, we decided that we needed to double in size in order to be able to handle the larger projects that our clients were asking us to do.
“That set us on a path of organic growth, fuelled by client demand that has continued to today. Reaching 100 employees is a significant milestone in our journey and it gives us cause to celebrate the contribution of all of our staff.”
