Goose said: “The positive figures we are able to report this year demonstrate the direction in which we are heading. The strategy we launched last year is already yielding results.
“At a time when so many contractors have had to make really tough decisions regarding salary cuts and redundancies, I’m immensely grateful that we have been able to navigate the last 12 months without having to do either of those unenviable things. We have a clear role to play in UK economic recovery, and I will make sure we do everything we can to support our clients, supply chain, and communities where we work as we emerge from the pandemic.
“Our focus will be on our people – the existing teams and those who join us in the future. And I am confident that the investment we deliver in their development and wellbeing will pay great dividends to us, their families and the industry.”
