Gifford increases of working partners

Consultant Gifford is to expand the number of working partners in the business from 21 to 32 from 1 January. The number will rise again, to 50, by July.
“The power of partnership is important to us, as is the importance of independence,” said Gifford chairman Gordon Clark. “This secures our future as one of the largest independent consultancies in the UK.”

The partnership last expanded from seven to 20 in 2006 (NCE 14 September 2006). The 850-strong business is expected to report an increased turnover of £47M in 2008, up from £42M in 2007. It is looking to increase this to more than £50M in 2009.

The firm has won work on more than £2bn of schools projects in the last two months and is part of the M25 widening team.

“We feel it is really important to maintain the owner to staff ratio so that colleagues are empowered and motivated and our clients continue to benefit from the Gifford ‘diff erence’,” Clark said.
