Macclesfield based user experience agency, Sigma, has announced it is on track to exceed £4 million turnover for the first time.
Despite the coronavirus pandemic, the firm has celebrated a number of recent client wins and has benefited from the acceleration of the switch to digital technology brought about by lockdown.
Managing Director, Hilary Stephenson, commented:
The past six months have been an incredibly exciting time for us, despite the economic climate and uncertainty.
“With many Britons using digital tools, resources, apps and websites as a first port of call, businesses have increasingly reviewed their accessibility and inclusivity levels and decided to do something about them. We have been very fortunate to have kept working through the summer and it’s great that we can see some real growth opportunities and a chance to invest new team members, new relationships and new initiatives.”
To support its growth, the user experience agency has also announced six additional hires to its team in Macclesfield. Jenny Featherston, Ani Gilmore and Claudia Escorcia join Sigma’s user research and design team; Lisa Matthews joins the firm’s growing content design practice. In Sigma’s DevOps group, Mel Ashby joins the firm’s front-end development team, and Harry Stanyer joins as a software developer on a degree apprenticeship scheme in partnership with Manchester Metropolitan University.
Some of the firm’s recent client wins include public sector contracts with the Department for Education and the NHS, as well as life science sector businesses, such as AstraZeneca and UK Biobank.
