However, with every crisis comes opportunity.
Newly unemployed Steve found himself sitting in a pub garden with his two developers discussing what to do next. During this conversation one of Steve’s developers mentioned that the recruitment company his mother worked for was looking to develop a recruitment website that could match candidates to employers. Back in 2001, this was a radical idea that hadn’t really been done before.
After meeting with the recruitment company to discuss their needs and what would be involved in the project, the boys walked away with an order for £32,000 to develop the website and enough work for years to come.
It was at this point that SJS Solutions was officially born.
