- The funding has enabled the business to start digitising more of its processes, improving customer experience and maintaining company resilience
- The business has started to bring its people back to work from furlough and completed on its new office lease
Santander UK has worked with Tunbridge Wells based Corinthian Benefits Consulting to provide a £175k CBILS loan. The funding will support cashflow during this uncertain period and enable the business to invest in and develop its online services proposition. The funding has also meant some staff could return from furlough and its new office lease has been successfully completed.
Corinthian Benefits Consulting was founded eight years ago and employs 23 people. The consultancy has helped over 350 small to medium-sized companies create bespoke company benefits programmes for over 15,000 employees. They offer advice on pension schemes, business and employee protection benefits and other employee benefit options.
Lee French, Director at Corinthian, commented: “This funding means we can look forward and plan for our recovery and growth as a business. It has given us the buffer we needed to ensure that we have the best chance possible of coming through these difficult times with a proposition better than we had before. Put simply, it means that we intend to recover.”
Craig Carter, Relationship Director at Santander UK, said: “We are pleased to be supporting Corinthian to help ensure that not only will the business survive this uncertain time, but that it can emerge with a stronger proposition than it had before and continue to thrive in the future.”
