Competition for funding has always been fierce and CICs can sometimes face the toughest battles.
I have been a member of the CIC Team for 10 years and have worked for the Civil Service since the tender age of 17 when I joined Companies House as a Clerical Assistant. I left the Civil Service to start my family, but also worked part time in various roles such as self employed Childminder and a part time contact centre operator. I eventually returned to work in the Companies House building, but this time to the Department of Business Innovation and Skills Pensions section. The section closed in 2007 and I moved on to my current role of Case Manager in the CIC Team.
