g2 celebrates 10 year anniversary
2013/2014 saw turnover reach an impressive £28m, and gross margin hit £5.3m – representing a 13% increase in turnover from 2012/2013 and represents a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 82% since the company’s inception.
g2 was founded in 2004 and at the time consisted of just 3 members. Today headcount totals 65, comprising 45 sales consultants and 20 operations staff.
Across the decade the company has expanded UK and international office locations. UK locations include head office in Bristol, as well as offices in Manchester and London. In October 2012 g2 launched overseas operations with offices in Houston, Texas.
g2’s three core divisions are IT, Engineering and Oil & Gas. With roots as an IT recruitment specialist, IT recruitment represents around 60% of today’s business. The company’s Engineering and Oil & Gas divisions have also gone from strength to strength, representing around 40% of today’s business.
All g2 sales consultants partake in the g2 Academy – an internal training and development programme to ensure consultants are experts within their specialisms.
James Gorfin, g2 CEO, is proud of all that g2 has achieved over the decade and believes the best years are still to come.
He says, “Our proven ability to recruit, develop and retain high level individuals gives me confidence that the best years are to come and far greater growth is in store.”
Keeping in line with the g2 ethic of “work hard play hard”, the company will be throwing a Ten Year Anniversary Bash in the summer for all g2 employees to toast ten years of success.
