Encompass 200Encompass Corporation, the technology solutions provider to financial services, legal professional and insolvency and corporate recovery firms, has made a number of significant appointments to its team, bringing the total number of staff to 32 in the UK.

In early 2015 Encompass employed just two software developers at its Glasgow headquarters.  Since then, the business has grown considerably with recent hires including the appointment of Scott Goodsir Smyth to bolster the firm’s customer success team.

Scott is responsible for establishing and growing a new team in Glasgow, where he has already recruited a Customer Success Specialist from the financial services sector.

Other recent appointments in their Glasgow office include 4 people for their sales team to target professional services clients and two developers in the market leading data products team.

Former Equifax manager, Graeme Port, is the new data products manager and Abigail Smith has joined as marketing and events co-ordinator.

In their London office, 4 field sales advisors (two professional services; two financial services) have joined Encompass and Natasha Miller, formerly a manager at Workshare, has joined as professional services product manager.

Responding to the information security requirements of clients in financial services, the company has also appointed a security and standards specialist to manage accreditation and ensure Encompass complies with strict information security regulations.

Wayne Johnson, founder and CEO at Encompass, said: “Since the company’s inception, we are delighted to report that the business has grown from strength to strength, and this is reflected in the calibre of the staff we are recruiting.  We design and develop products to ensure maximum quality and performance for our clients.

“It is therefore key to have the right team in place.   We employ staff who thrive and grow in our innovative work environment and they respond by creating products that help our clients take advantage of new market trends.”

The ethics of the SRA’s social media warning notice

Mena Ruparel

Social media portals are regularly used by firms and those who work for law firms in both professional and personal capacities. Their informal nature and the fast pace of use makes it all too easy for regulated people to get carried away with online discussions or comments which can fall foul of the regulator. This is more likely to happen on social media platforms as these are virtual, accessed in the solicitor’s own time and space. It can be easy to forget that solicitors are regulated just the same at 11pm on their home computer as they are at 3pm in the office or at court.
