As Fingerpost Consulting enters its 3rd year of business, I can’t help but reflect on how the company has changed in such a small space of time. I started out in 2015 with a laptop at home… and by the end of 2017 we will be a team of 5 with an office in Poynton, Cheshire. The team and I currently support 17 market access consultancies by providing temporary, experienced resource for projects. Sometimes we just step in as a researcher, medical writer or project manager for a few weeks to keep projects moving forward; at other times we might be responsible for a specific deliverable from start to finish.
A lot of the work we do is centered on the value story of a product. But what is the Fingerpost Consulting value story? For me, it’s all about Freedom, Flexibility, Friendship, Fulfilment, Family and Fun. It’s a happy coincidence that Freelance and Fingerpost also begin with F. I appreciate there are other ‘F’ words that might be less appealing, but let’s just focus on the first 6 that popped into my head….
FUN provides a healthy balance
Our office is well placed opposite a decent pub. Of course, it’s now Q4 and we have a number of deadlines that mean the pub may need to wait a bit…but we intend to make the most of it as soon as things start to cool off (I know I’ve been saying that since June…). Within the office, the mood is light-hearted and our doggy mascots provide endless amusement and are always ready for a walk, a play or a cuddle. Kipling and Larkin are our resident pooches, but visiting dogs are always welcome. You can see photos of what they get up to on the Fingerpost instagram profile because, well, the dogs are much more interesting to look at than photos of us typing and taking calls!
I can’t believe you managed to read this through to the end, but if I sparked your interest and you’d like to hear more about how we can support you at Fingerpost Consulting, or about our job opportunities, I’d love to chat to you. Fill out the contact form on the website or send me an email and we can set up a call. To be honest though, I prefer meeting face to face… see you at ISPOR Glasgow?
