Leeds-based IT transformation consultancy, Iridium, has welcomed two new additions to its rapidly growing team, which has grown by 50% in the last six months in-line with significant client wins.
Having recently celebrated three years in business providing a range of services to a client base of fintech, utility and legal firms, including cyber security, IT transformation, card migrations and technical delivery, the consultancy is set to introduce a suite of new services – along with a raft of permanent new recruits to facilitate the business’s continued expansion.
Nicole Mikulla, who previously held the role of Enterprise Client Manager at Spring Technology and Engineering, which is part of The Adecco Group, has joined the Iridium team from 22nd March to take on the position of client solutions manager.
Mikulla will draw on 18 years of specialist recruitment in IT and engineering to work with existing and new clients to enhance and expand Iridium’s capabilities within their business, whilst assisting in the development and embedding of the firm’s new product offerings.
Nicole said: “I’m delighted to have joined Iridium. I have been aware of the business over the last couple of years, and this is a great opportunity. The company is already known for its agile and flexible approach, and I’m excited to combine my skills and experience with their services and reputation to further develop the adaptable solutions which will help our clients overcome the ever-present challenges of COVID, Brexit, IR35 and a rapidly evolving market.”
Joining Nicole on the new-starter roll call is business operations consultant, Amanda Juniper. Amanda joined the firm in late January to further bolster the busy operations team and support its rapidly growing network of clients and consultants. With over 15 years of experience in business support and operations, Juniper brings a calm, capable and knowledgeable approach to the fast-paced role.
The arrival of Nicole and Amanda takes the internal team to eight people, a number that has doubled in just six months.
Ben Dainton, Iridium founder and co-director, said: “In this digital age, businesses have come to realise that it’s not feasible, or necessary, to have specialist IT permanently in-house, and that by working with us, they can tap into some of the country’s leading IT talent when needed for specific migration, security or transformation projects when needed, or to plug a skills gap.”
“Our internal team has been carefully curated to deliver intelligent, intuitive and efficient solutions to our clients with every single engagement, and we’re delighted to welcome Nicole and Amanda, with their impressive experience and skills, to the team. It’s an exciting time for our industry, and I couldn’t have more confidence in our people to deliver the best possible solutions for our clients as we continue to grow.”
