Looking to 2018

After leaving 2017 on a high, we're looking to make 2018 an even BIGGER year for Big Cloud! So, what's in store? We're investing even more in technology in the office to make sure our consultants are the best they can be. Growing our recruitment areas globally. Adding more amazing people to our team here in the NQ! Expanding our social media and marketing efforts, check us out on Twitter @BigCloudTeam... you'll see we already attract a huge following! Will YOU be joining us on this journey?

We've done some maths...

Let's say you work a 9 hour day. That is 540 mins. Minus let's say 45 mins for lunch, that is 495 mins. Multiply that by 5, you work 2475 mins per week, not including weekends. Multiply THAT by 46 (approx 46 weeks per year worked). You spend approximately 113850 minutes per year in the office. Not including your lunch break. If you fancy it in scientific notation that is 1.13850 x 10^5 minutes. We could work this out as a proportion of the total time in a year, as a fraction or a percentage. We could deduct approximate sick days, time away from the office, social events etc. But the point remains... we work a lot. Why do it somewhere you hate? Work for BigCloud.

More than just recruiting! We want to make you an expert on everything from boolean to the dark arts of x-ray searching.

Are you an animal lover? We definitely are! Here's a few of the Big Cloud team's pets for Love Your Pet Day! 💕🐶🐱
