Our story

Our best ever year was last year in the midst of the worst recession in 300 years. Even though we’d been operating very successfully for over 20 years, 2020 was a stand out year. We were 30% above our best ever performance, everyone was earning amazing money and blending work with a great lifestyle for them and their families. We were winning more retained executive recruitment campaigns and placing more technical contractors than we’d ever done before. We’d blown up the 80:20 myth of 20% of the people doing 80% of the revenue. Everyone was doing well. Our top consultants were earning over two hundred thousand pounds a year and were working more flexibly and less hours than ever before.

A year of innovation

In 2020 we’d perfected our approach to our markets, enhanced our training, and even extended what we did. We started offering additional services including brokering new venture capital funding for the technology start-ups and even helped them sell their technology to our other clients. One deal currently in the pipeline will net over $85 million for our client and generate over $4million in fees for the recruiter who had brokered the deal.  We were becoming much more than just a technology recruitment organization.
