Be prepared for any eventuality

Firms and customers are increasingly relying on technology to improve experience and increase efficiency, but with more moving parts there also comes the risk of more things going wrong.

In recent years we have seen some of the biggest businesses in the country fall foul of systems issues, cyber security incidents and even operational surges. It really can happen to anyone.

Your firm needs a solid plan for getting back on its feet should the worst occur. Thankfully, this planning and investment need not cost the Earth. There are plenty of cost-efficient solutions that we can help put in place now to protect your business and ensure you can bounce back from any shock.

Managed resourcing solution

Flexible emergency resource

To help protect firms from the impact of surges in operational demands, Huntswood is able to deploy a managed, shared-service staff pool to Huntswood premises. We will allocate associates to clients as per individual commitment volumes. When the service is operational, trained resource can be drawn quickly from the resource pool, meaning we can flex and shrink without delay.
