Rapidly-growing IT services provider Aura Technology has expanded into new offices and launched a recruitment drive following a series of client wins.
Aura has created a modern and flexible workspace at Southampton’s Ocean Village as it looks to create 40 jobs for account managers, technical engineers and support staff over the next two years.
Tim Walker, managing director of Aura, said: “Our move to Ocean Village reflects our success so far and we’ve worked hard to create an environment that meets our needs as we continue to grow.
“The Southampton office complements our London operation, giving us two strategic locations from which to service our existing clients and continue our expansion.”
Backed by a team of technology professionals with decades of experience, Aura has won a number of new clients including Vail Williams, Spinlock, Inspiration Marine Group, law firm Humphries Kerstetter, and more.
Aura works at senior level with businesses with between 50 and 500 IT users to develop and implement IT strategies that are aligned to business plans and goals.
Walker added: “We identified a gap in the market and we know clients appreciate the way we work, delivering at a strategic level to transform IT services.
“For example, at Vail Williams we worked closely with the board as the company went through a merger and expansion, ensuring that the transfer of IT platforms was seamless and the IT infrastructure was future-proofed for growth.
“The feedback from Vail Williams was hugely positive, with the managing partner commenting that he saw Aura as a strategic partner with the ‘Midas touch’ towards the firm’s IT transformation.
“This is exactly the kind of service we are determined to deliver for all our clients as we grow further.”
