With over 10 years in the industry, we offer independent, strategic digital consultancy services aimed at helping our customers to find the best ways to solve their problems, and giving them the tools, skills, and knowledge to continue what we start.
Records Sound the Same operates as a collective - it's run by consultant Sally Jenkinson, and when needed, selected specialist freelancers, so that we can put together a programme of work with the skill sets that you need.
Everything we do is focused around you and your unique situation. We can help with identifying your business’ and customers’ needs, and work with you to understand the different options available for planning website builds - especially what this may mean in terms of systems, solutions, timings and costs. Going beyond your website, we can also review your organisation’s processes and services; helping you with digital transformation across how your teams work and the technology that they use.
Relationships are very important to us - not only do we always talk like humans (even when it might get a bit technical!), but we also want to give you the skills and knowledge to continue the work that we start, although we’ll always be there when you need.
If you like the sound of this, we’d love to hear from you!
What do you need help with?
Digital strategy, service design & transformation
Sometimes change needs to be broader than just your website.
We can help with setting strategy, roadmapping the future, and improving user experiences. Maybe you're pondering technology and systems selection, transforming business processes and interaction methods, or introducing new skills to your team - we'd love to help with whatever challenges you're facing.
Project discovery & planning solutions
When you've got a project already in mind, you may need help with uncovering what needs should be met, what options are available to meet these, and planning the details of how best to get where you need to.
Our discovery, solutions architecture and planning support can help agencies and clients who need an independent, specialist spare pair of hands.
Training & workshops
With speaking experience ranging from developer user groups to huge audiences at global conferences, we can offer private/in-house presentations, training, and hands-on workshops aimed at passing on practical skills.
This isn't just for companies - we're also really keen to pass on our knowledge to those who are learning, and have worked with a number of educational insitutions to provide teaching material.
Whether you're looking to bring in someone with a range of industry experience to work alongside your team, have specific tasks, or would like guidance and governance on your projects, we can offer days of ad-hoc consultancy to make this happen.
Our consultancy days can be used for areas including documentation review, technical editing, advice on pitches, helping with individual aspects of work that you're undertaking, or simply getting some advice.
With most projects, once you get in touch we'll probably go through something very similar to the process below. This helps to establish whether we're right for each other, and if your project will need additional resource from some of the wider team that Sally can bring on board.
We'll start with a call to chat about your needs, your timescales, and your budget.
Assuming we like each other, you'll get a proposal detailing some potential approaches and costs.
Assemble the team
If we need to bring in specialists or collaborators, this is when they'll be introduced and we'll all discuss how we want to work together.
Once you're happy with the proposal, the contract, and the team, we'll get the paperwork signed and officially book in the project.
Work gets started!
For most of what we do it'll then probably look a bit like this...
- Understanding your customer and business needs
- Investigating your systems and proceses
- Putting together requirements, solutions and recommendations
- Brief creation, agency partnering, recruitment support
- Training, workshops, on-going consultancy

Marc Goblot, Executive Tech Director at Precedent
“I brought in Sally to fill a much needed role as technical lead to scope technical requirements, discovery of client landscape and solution architecture across a number of our biggest projects.
I could trust implicitly her knowledge, sense of direction and attention to detail whether defining new documentation standards when specifying integration points, writing up analysis of content management systems or holding stakeholder interviews.”
