What our customers say

“ICKG is located in the University of Essex’s Enterprise Zone, and the close partnership makes it very easy to take advantage of the university’s internship programme. So far we have hired two 2019 grads, and are considering bringing on a part-time intern and working with MBA students on an upcoming project. All of these positions are heavily subsidised by the university, which has really worked to our advantage and is helping us turbocharge our growth.”
