Meet our growing team

Our continuing business expansion has enabled us to recruit three new members of staff in early 2018, two grant funding consultants and a Team Support.

James Griffiths and Katie Orchel have recently joined the Granted team as Grant Funding Consultants.

James has a Masters Degree in Physics. His career background spans accounts, investments and finance and includes time spent in investment working as a Portfolio Analyst for a Private Asset Management company.

Katie has recently completed a PhD in Human Geography at the University of Exeter, and has been involved in a variety of consultation roles. Her experience and knowledge extends across research design and implementation, bid writing, data analysis and project coordination.

Lauren Daubney also joins as Team Support to provide administrative assistance to the growing Granted Team.  Lauren previously worked in financial services and is undertaking an NVQ in Business administration at Exeter College.

Jon Williams, Granted Director confirms:

“The recruitment of 3 new staff members to bolster our experienced team provides a step-change in Granted’s capabilities and capacity. Their unique blend of skills and experience will be key to delivering continued growth and help us to meet unprecedented demand for our services. In the past 12 months, we have seen a significant increase in support for research and development projects from the UK government, particularly through funding body Innovate UK which plans to invest hundreds of millions of pounds to support innovative UK businesses.  Expanding our team will enable us to provide clients with a wider range of services whilst continuing to ensure we maximise our clients’ likelihood of success in securing funding”.
