Celebrating Our 6 Year Anniversary

Celebrating Our 6 Year Anniversary

Six years ago saw the birth of StaffHost as a specialist recruitment consultancy. We had a vision to establish ourselves as a global leader of technology recruitment solutions, providing world class talent and commercial value to our partners, on a global level.

Choosing our selected verticals carefully, we wanted to have teams dedicated to ServiceNow, Cyber Security and Cloud Infrastructure recruitment, specifically with a European focus initially. Whats more, we wanted our teams to be filled with talented and passionate individuals who enjoy coming to work everyday.

Since our inception in 2012, we have become a recognised market leader in the provision of technology talent acquisition across Europe. Our multi-discipline expertise has enabled us to place exceptional candidates with some of the world’s leading brands as well as some of the most exciting technology start-ups. Our expertise, methodology and consultative approach has ensured a first-class experience for our clients and candidates.

We recognise that our staff are at the heart of our success and we don't take their talent and dedication for granted. We're celebrating with a full office re-design and designated area for our employees to relax during their down time with things ranging from a pool table, games console, drinks fridge and more. We've also just launch our brand-new website with new functionality and features, including the ability for candidates to register for custom job alerts. and visitors to read the latest industry news, updated every few hours.
