Top Track 250

Investment in cloud-based technology has helped this London-based firm work remotely during the pandemic, with staff conducting interviews by video, which it says are quicker to schedule than physical meetings. Founded in 2007 by chairman Simon La Fosse, 56, the recruitment business’s customers include Sony, Skype and Apple. It focuses on roles in data and analytics, cyber-security and digital transformation. In 2018, sales hit £108.4m, up 27%, and it opened an office in New York — its second in America — before launching in Canada last year.
