We are a project management and technical consultancy with a strong track record in assessing, defining, planning, designing and supervising major projects and development programmes. Our experts undertake work on behalf of blue-chip private sector clients, governments and development agencies globally.
The Group has well-diversified revenues, employing around 1,600 people and operating from more than 50 locations across the UK, Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East. We are driven by client service and underpinned by technical excellence. We help create value, protect value, and manage risk. We are a partner of choice for organisations operating in complex or challenging environments.
The seven core market sectors we serve are: Defence & Justice, Energy & Waste, Environment (including water and waste water), Transport, Mining & Minerals, Urban & Commercial Development, and Social Development & Infrastructure. Our technical and regulatory expertise, project and local market experience, and client relationships provide us with a clear competitive edge in these markets.
Our aim is to deliver shareholder value and drive growth across the business by implementing our strategy of developing and serving the markets for our consultancy and international development expertise. We will do this through an appropriate blend of organic investment and selective acquisition, whilst recognising the risks and opportunities presented by a dynamic global market and political environment.
In March 2017, the Board finalised a five-year growth strategy which aims to develop WYG’s strong reputation for being a professional services firm underpinned by technical excellence. At the heart of this strategy is a focus on combining the strengths of our consultancy services and international development businesses to generate optimum value for our clients, delivering sustainable growth and improving margins.
This plan harnesses the specialist skills from across our business bringing the improved focus required to address the major challenges of climate adaptation, energy planning, major infrastructure projects, defence, water management, mass migration and the UK housing shortfall.
We keep our strategy under review to ensure that it remains appropriate and focused.
