We are delighted to announce our new office in Manchester, where we’ll be working with some of the UK’s fastest growing digital and tech businesses. 

Our new presence in the North of England comes in response to the incredible growth of the Digital and Technology industries in the region.

As of 2015, digital employment has grown to over 56,000 and many companies are planning to follow in the footsteps of the BBC and ITV with their move to Salford’s £950 million MediaCityUK complex. According to the Manchester Investment and Development Agency Service, over £3.5 billion has been invested to drive growth of the local digital and technology industries. With a strong graduate talent pool, the area benefits from a wealth of innovative technologies and emerging start-ups.


Greater Manchester has seen a 70% increase in the number of digital companies incorporated between 2010 and 2013 so it’s clear to see that the digital ecosystem is thriving there - we can’t wait to be a part of it!

We will be working with companies that we’ve developed relationships with from our London Headquarters, and will draw from other existing partnerships to drive business growth in the North. Our goal is to deliver the same consistently exceptional service that we’ve provided to our clients in London, and maintain the success we’ve had in creating and developing tech teams, within start-up and established business alike.

The new Manchester office will be an invaluable extension of our network, with one of our most experienced Directors, Mat Lilley being the driving force behind the expansion. The office will benefit from his extensive background in Digital recruitment, along with his impressive portfolio of clients.

“I’m proud and excited to be opening our first regional office in the centre of Manchester in March 2016. Manchester’s future both as a thriving City and as a digital technology hub seems assured and we’re looking forward to being a small part of that growth and success. Our presence in the North will allow us to extend the fantastic service we offer in London to the Manchester market and beyond” says Lilley. “We’re excited about developing our client base and our team, with the support of our well-established London headquarters”.

Does this sound like the kind of amazing journey you’d like to be involved with? We are looking for exceptional recruiters to join us on our adventure – this is an incredible opportunity to be part of our new office from day one and make a real impact on the success of our Manchester hub.
