Grayce has made the Financial Times’ eighth annual list of Europe’s 1000 fastest-growing companies.
The Financial Times’ list of Europe’s 1000 fastest-growing companies is created in partnership with Statista; all companies listed must have had a revenue of at least 1.5m euros in 2021 and be headquartered in Europe. Grayce is featured on the list for the second year in a row, climbing 354 places to rank 501 fastest-growing companies in Europe, compared to 855 in 2022. Grayce is ranked as the 10th fastest-growing management consultancy in the UK.
Grayce’s inclusion and growth in the list show that it is supplying a need that is not only helping the company survive during times of uncertainty but thrive. Grayce provides a unique solution to organisations resourcing challenges. Grayce’s growth shows organisations require a tailored approach to building a talent pipeline that helps businesses to hire, train, deploy and deliver high-quality Analysts and services.
Grayce has continued to grow rapidly since 2021 and has seen revenues grow by 117% in the last two years. Its intake of Analysts has increased by 158% in the last two years alone, and another 600 graduates will be hired this year. To date, the consultancy has helped start the careers of over 2000 people and is now servicing 66% more clients than in 2016 as the demand for skilled professionals in change, data, and tech continues to rise.
This demand has seen Grayce’s turnover increase from £10.5m in 2019/20 to £31.4m in 2021/22, showing a 200% increase over three years, with an 96% increase in turnover for the most recent fiscal year compared to the year before. Furthermore, the last two years have seen Grayce increase its employed staff from 249 to 637.
Grayce recognises its continued growth is down to the talented people within the business, from the hardworking HQ Team that runs the business operations to the ambitious Analysts committed to delivering excellent outcomes for our clients nationwide. Grayce’s people are the key to achieving the business’ aim to change the face of consulting, leading with purpose, and developing future leaders. Last year, Grayce invested in two new £2m+ collaborative workspaces in Manchester and London and a further £2m invested in training to equip more young people than ever with the skills they’ll need for both now and for future employability.
Grayce CEO, Jo Matkin, says: “It’s brilliant to have our growth recognised with inclusion on this prestigious list. The skills gap is a very real threat to organisations’ longevity. We remain committed to our mission to close this skills gap for good, connecting driven, emerging professionals with leading organisations nationwide to deliver the business and digital transformation necessary in these changing times. Grayce’s ‘hyper-growth’ journey demonstrates the high demand for talent across change and transformation, data analysis, and tech.”
Furthermore, Grayce believes it’s all about growing in the right way. Grayce’s values sit at the heart of everything the business does. Its priority is caring for its people, championing diversity, and partnering with organisations that share its passion for emerging talent.
By being recognised on the FT 1000: Europe’s fastest-growing companies list for a second year, Grayce hopes to strengthen its reputation as the leading emerging talent consultancy, developing leaders in change, data, and tech for organisations nationwide.
Jo Matkin, continues: “We are hugely grateful to our HQ team, clients, partners, and talented Analysts who continue to support us on this growth journey. Together, we’re accelerating at pace and expect to continue to quickly rise through these rankings over the coming years.”
