Many of the government’s big IT projects have run into trouble, but this Manchester company, which specialises in IT procurement for government departments, claims never to have had a major complaint. Headed by Jim Young, Oakleigh Consulting says that successful projects – such as the jobseekers’ web portal, Worktrain – have ensured that 80% of its sales come from repeat business. Having recently added British Airways to its client base, the Manchester company has boosted its sales 51% a year from £3.9m in 2002 to £8.9m in 2004.
