Rapid Expansion

Shortly after moving into our new office, Square One has rapidly expanded. We have more than doubled in size in 2018 and are now looking forward to further growth in 2019; exciting times ahead!

New Customers

Whilst we have expanded internally, we also greeted notable customers to Square One too and are proud to deliver them the best service possible!

New Website and CRM

Halfway through 2018, in accordance with our new branding, we designed and implemented a new website (which is the website you are on now!). We also introduced a new CRM system in October 2018, which has streamlined our processes, allowing us to deliver even better service to our customers.

Cyber Essentials Certification

The Cyber Essentials certification scheme ensures that the most important cyber security controls have been implemented, meaning you can rest assured that we will protect your data from cyber-attacks and criminals. We’re proud to say we became certified in July 2018!

British Irish Chamber of Commerce

We became a proud member of the British Irish Chamber of Commerce, which has strengthened our existing ties with Ireland and our Irish customers. Established in 2011, the British Irish Chamber of Commerce is a bilateral chamber which recruits members from both Britain and Ireland and aims to champion trade between the two islands.

Trade Show Season

The second half of 2018 was a busy trade show season for Square One as we aimed to increase our brand awareness and generate new leads. These were a great success and we look forward to doing more next year.

Recruitment Expo, NEC Birmingham, 3rd & 4th October 2018

Best Practice Show, NEC Birmingham, 17th & 18th November 2018

International Security Expo, Olympia London, 28th and 29th November 2018

And while all of this was going on, we also had fun along the way!

As the festive season approached, we had our first Christmas jumper day.

We also enjoyed a fantastic meal at one of Bristol’s finest steakhouses, as a reward for hitting quarterly targets! We’re also proud of Simon and Jack, who travelled across to France in a souped-up second-hand car in fancy dress, all to raise money for charity.

Well done guys!

Exciting times ahead

It’s safe to say that Square One has achieved a lot in 2018! We’re now looking ahead to 2019 and are excited for what the next couple months lie ahead. Watch this space and follow us on LinkedIn and Twitter for all the latest updates.
