SSQ Interim Solutions now has ten consultants and four dedicated resourcers serving clients across private practice, financial services and commerce and industry.
Following the new appointments, SSQ’s Chief Executive, Nick Shilton said:
“The last five years have brought a real shift in the use of interim and flexible resource in the legal sector; more and more of our clients are seeing the benefits. As a result, it has been important for us to grow our team further in order to support our clients. We are very pleased to have added Ray and Sylvia to our team. They both have excellent knowledge and wide networks which will help strengthen our presence, at the same time as allowing our clients access to specific expertise to help them with their own flexible staffing.”
