A look back at Q1

By Methods29 September 2020

2020 has been challenging, but we are managing to keep a positive outlook. As outlined in this TechMarketView article, during Methods Q1 (May-July), we have seen growth within our CoreAzure and Methods Analytics businesses, and maintained a steady YoY with Methods BDT.

We have been heavily recruiting and added 25 new development staff in Q1 (with the aim to recruit a further 50-75 over the course of the full year), as well as welcoming Nick Godfrey to the group as our new Business Development Director.

In terms of new contracts, the Education Skills and Funding Agency (ESFA) has been an existing client for a number of years. However, we are very pleased to announce that we have a number of new projects in the pipeline, including:

  • the provision of project delivery services to support the development of digital services for T-level users – new education qualification that has launched this month
  • user-centred design support for ESFA’s transformation programme across the national careers service, the apprenticeship service and data science
  • digital development services across the same transformation programme areas.

We continue to look ahead into the future quarters with enthusiasm. Delivering better public services is at the core of what we do and we are always on the look out for people who are highly motivated to make a difference. Please do check keep an eye on our careers page for new roles.
