The Pulse Umbrella Group, specialising in umbrella and accountancy services for contractors, has been included in the second edition of the London Stock Exchange’s ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain’ report 2015. The report identifies the fastest-growing and most dynamic small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) in the UK.
To be included in the list, companies needed to show consistent revenue growth over a minimum of three years, significantly outperforming their industry peers.
Chris Futcher, CEO of The Pulse Umbrella Group, comments: “Being recognised as being among the highest performing SMEs in the UK is a huge honour for us and acknowledgement of our commitment to delivering fantastic services to our clients.”
“Contracting remains a popular way of working and we’re proud to support this important part of the UK workforce who provide valuable and flexible skills to UK PLC. Contractors must often navigate a stormy sea of paperwork and tax matters with HMRC and we are focused on making this as easy as possible for our clients so that they can concentrate on their actual work, not paperwork.”
Only 70 companies providing financial services were included in the report and the sector was ranked as the fourth industry for job creation with a 7.1 per cent share after food & beverage (8.8 per cent), information technology (8.6 per cent) and manufacturing (7.6 per cent).
Xavier Rolet, Chief Executive, London Stock Exchange Group said: “This report is a significant part of London Stock Exchange’s broader campaign to support UK high growth companies in their journeys from Start-up to Stardom and to create an entrepreneurship revolution. I’m delighted that a strong alliance between UK Government, financial market participants, investors, entrepreneurs and companies has been created to support these inspiring businesses.”
