About Our Client
Our client has grown its income over the last few years since it took on UK Company and Charity Status in 2011 and 2012 respectively and as of December 2019 recorded £12.8m m in turnover compared to £3.8m in 2015. With income growth, also comes the challenge of establishing and sustaining increased controls and regulatory oversight. The UK regulatory environment has also (over the years) required organisations working in the sector to become more stringent in the ability to demonstrate efficiency and value for money. The year 2017-2018 saw the emergence of new requirements around GDPR, Safeguarding, prevention of Terrorism etc. in addition to increased reporting by the non-governmental and other sectors, all requiring regular monitoring and oversight. They have experienced massive growth over the last few years which has also informed a need to grow its supporting systems and technology. To this end, management has taken steps to implementing the Business World (formerly known as Agresso), Enterprise Reporting Planning system from 2020.
