Longueville Group is the result of a 1995 merger between IT recruitment business Flavell Divett International and software developer Mountfield Software. Trading together since 1991, Roderick Flavell is its chief executive. While the majority of billings come from placing IT contractors, the more profitable area of the business involves placing contractors who have endured 2½ year training programs, during which they are individually mentored by experienced programmers. 4% of billings come from placing consultants in charge of clients’ IT systems and staff, earning the company its most lucrative return on investment of 120%. Last year the company set up its first overseas operation in North Carolina’s Research Triangle area by putting an advertisement in a computer programmers’ magazine directing anyone interested in the service to visit its web site. Analysis revealed that most web site visitors came from the Research Triangle area and, much to their surprise, the Czech Republic.
