Giacom has reported recorded another great year of financial growth for 2021, growing by 20% to £58.6M.
The CSP’s success in the past year has been mirrored by an increase in new hires; with the team growing by 22% in 2021 across all departments. As a Hull-headquartered business, Giacom actively recruits local talent, with 79% of staff originating from the local area.
As well as hiring externally, Giacom aims to promote and develop internal staff. To nurture young local talent, Giacom has started apprenticeships within its Marketing and IT departments. The company has also encouraged training opportunities internally, and recently launched its Personal Development Plan Scheme, which is available to all staff to up-skill themselves. This has lead to 9 staff applying for the highly regarded CMI management certificates.
Additionally, in October 2021, Giacom announced its new partnership with cyber security giant Sophos, being chosen as one of three UK MSP distributors for Sophos. They’ve so far acquired 356 of Sophos partners, and this figure is set to grow over 2022. Because of this expansion, Giacom created a new department and hired an in-house Sophos specialist team.
“We continue to place our staff as our number one priority, and want our staff to feel at home as they grow and develop within their roles and careers. As we continue a hybrid working approach, we aim to help our staff have a better work life balance, while providing them with an office space that helps them to relax and socialise with one another. Investing in our community is important to us too, and we are extremely proud of our Hull heritage.“ Mike Wardell, CEO of Giacom.
