The Explore Group has been helping companies recruit top talent in the ever-evolving world of technology since 2005.  We’ve adapted alongside the changing IT market to become increasingly specialist enabling us to support our customers on their journey through the new digital economy.  Our niche divisions of Open Source, Cloud, DevOps, Mobile, Digital Marketing and Technology now provide both candidates and clients with the knowledge, market insight and advice that they need to build great teams now and for the future.  

The Technology sector is one of the UK’s leading economic success stories but this can only continue if organisations secure top talent in an increasingly competitive market.  Explore has evolved to consistently deliver that top talent through carefully tailored services using leading recruitment technology, candidate attraction techniques, embedding ourselves deeply in our candidates’ world and relentlessly learning the intricacies of supply and demand in each niche. 

We believe that our core values of integrity, expertise, partnership, passion and collaboration are also key to helping our customers succeed.  We are committed to continuous improvement, innovation and knowledge sharing and try to add value wherever possible for our customers whilst keeping the recruitment process simple and easy

Recruitment will always be a people business and our success is built on the strong long lasting relationships we have with our customers.  We always encourage our staff to ‘do the right thing’ from providing an honest and open level of service to delivering on all promises.  We also support them through extensive training and coaching to create new ideas, experiment and look at issues in new ways enabling us to unearth new solutions that we can share so everyone has the knowledge and information to succeed
