Risk Management Consultants Assent have chosen its Southend-on-Sea office to expand its Technology Team.

Director Robert Clements said:

“Our business serves clients all around the country with hubs in Southend, London and Cardiff so we had to think carefully about where best to place new hires.”

 

Assent will expand its in-house cyber and tech capabilities.

Our web infrastructure is growing, with the introduction of new cyber security services such as Simulated Phishing Attacks, and the newly branded ‘Lorators‘ Learning and Development services, which includes a public Learning Management System (LMS).

“Internet Connectivity, Resilience and the local tech ecosystem all played a part in our decision to place an I.T resource in Southend.  We see #TechCityonSea as a growing tech community which supports our work in other major tech cities.”
Said Director Robert Clements.

 

Seb Coombes, manager at the Hive Enterprise Centre, said

“We’re delighted to see the Assent Team grow and welcome their new members to the Hive Community. Southend is a thriving tech-town and I’m delighted to see family-orientated small businesses like Assent grow and create new local jobs.”

 

This is a big step for Assent, significantly increasing the scope of its support.

We’re committed to providing the best service to our clients, and while we have incredible fee-earning consultants, they rely on support from our offices which we are strengthening going in to 2019.

Assent has seen a huge increase in Information Security, Cyber Security and Business Continuity requests, and the team has been working with clients ranging from Banks, Mobile Apps, Medical & Recruitment.
