Risk management company kickstarts 2021 with £600k of project wins

An East Midlands-based risk management company is trying to shake off the COVID-19 hangover and Brexit disruption by kick starting its new year with over £600k of new project wins in construction, food manufacturing, electrical vehicle supply and waste processing.

Finch Consulting, which is based in Ashby de la Zouch, specialises in helping organisations understand and mitigate environmental, health and safety, and engineering risks. The new appointments include projects in the UK, EU and the UAE, to support clients by solving compliance, reputational and litigation issues.

One of the new UK projects is to advise on engineering safety and compliance in sinking three new mine shafts at Woodsmith Project in North Yorkshire. This £2.8bn project has attracted wide media interest as it is set to access the world’s largest, highest grade resource of polyhalite and create over 2,000 jobs.

Other projects include the provision of company-wide machinery safety training for three international food manufacturers, and health and safety support to the managers of one of London’s most iconic buildings and training senior management staff in a global datacentre provider on health and safety compliance.

Operations Director Janine Watterson said: “Our success is down to our people and our relationships. We recruit, support and retain the best in their fields, and nurture long term relationships with our clients, who return to us again and again, enabling us to support them in good times and bad. Our positive start to 2021 is entirely due to the relationships we have developed, and to the tenacity, candour, and resilience of our people.”

Finance Director Andrew Millington added: “Finch Consulting is resilient. The businesses which became Finch were started in recessions in the 80’s and 90’s and came through the recession in 2008 and 2009. Our agility derived from being a small business, and open culture has helped us adapt and transform.

“I think there are plenty of reasons to be optimistic about the future. Our diversity across many sectors is a strength – we work across food (human and animal), energy, waste, pharmaceutical, manufacturing as well as the service markets that support them such as law firms, financiers, insurers, brokers and adjusters.

“We’re also supporting leisure and entertainment which has been hard hit by COVID 19, to ensure they  bounce back as vaccines start to make a difference to personal freedoms and risk.”
