Leaders Behind Locations - The Midlands


In October 2023, we proudly established our Birmingham office, capitalising on the multitude of benefits the Midlands has to offer. This strategic expansion enhances our support for clients and candidates in the surrounding areas.

Our sector, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), finds the Midlands to be particularly enticing, thanks to its role as a dynamic hub for innovation and growth. Its central UK location, exceptional connectivity, and access to a skilled talent pool from local universities make the Midlands a top choice for STEM businesses. The region is home to a flourishing innovation ecosystem, numerous science parks and tech innovation, all supported by significant infrastructure investments. Collaborative networks across academia, industry, and government sectors drive innovation. Furthermore, the diverse economy and supportive business environment offer myriad expansion opportunities.

These factors create an ideal environment for STEM businesses, and we are excited to be a part of the Midlands' vibrant community.

The Leader

At the heart of our Midlands venture is Steve, with over 17 years of experience in technical recruitment. Steve’s expertise isn't just broad; it's deep, especially within the Electronics Technology Industry. From Embedded Software and Firmware to Electronics Design and beyond, Steve has been instrumental in the success of numerous professionals and organisations.

Yet, Steve's life is far more than his work. Beyond the office, he finds joy in the company of his family, the greens of the golf course, and the creative outlet of his DJ studio.
