Business Name: Sim Within Group Limited
Location: Leigh on Sea, Essex
With a successful career in telecoms spanning over 25 years, Senior Sales and Marketing Director Stuart James began to crave more autonomy and flexibility over his working hours. He decided to take the leap into setting up his own business and launched Sim Within Group Limited in November 2016.
We spoke to Stuart about his new business and how Nwes supported him.
What does Sim Within Group Limited offer?
Sim Within Group Limited offers telecoms services and consultancy, mentoring, business process and lead generation. The business utilises my skills and experience to support businesses to increase their margins and sales quickly.
I have made a considerable amount of money for others over the last few years. I’ve been treading water for the last five years, with the urge and passion to succeed in my own business.
How has Nwes supported you?
I sought the advice of Nwes and was put in touch with Business Advisor, Gillian Austen. Together we were able to talk about my vision for Sim Within Group Limited, and how to make this a reality. With 1-to-1 business support, I was able to fine-tune my business plan and financials. I was also eligible for a Start Up Loan, and Gillian guided me through the application process.
The Start Up Loan enabled me to purchase essential equipment to support Sim Within Group Limited, and the breathing space to choose more lucrative business without having to do some work for low margins. It made a real difference, and I’m pleased that I have benefitted from the knowledge and expertise of Nwes.
I found Nwes, and Gill in particular, first class. She offered very useful advice. Moving forward I want to be more engaged with the other services Nwes provides.
