The Energize Story

Following a decade of sustained growth, winning a host of industry awards, and sparking a revolution in customer care standards, we felt the time was right to export our hugely-successful brand of staffing solutions from Europe to North America.

Heralded as ‘Best Company to Work For’ by the UK’s Institute of Recruitment Professionals, and the first-ever staffing solutions company recognised by the UK Institute of Customer Service, Energize is known for the highest standards afforded to our customers and employees. By applying vital stakeholder feedback we have built long-standing collaborations with some of the world’s most recognisable businesses and some supremely-talented IT and Digital professionals – committed always to delivering a world-class customer experience.

To ensure we manage our partnerships effectively and provide the best-possible service, Energize now has regional offices in Los Angeles, as well as Manchester and London, Brussels and Frankfurt.

Candidates, Clients and Consultants provide the crucial feedback that was instrumental in creating our company Vision:

‘To become the market leader of service standards in the global IT and Digital recruitment industry.’

Every day, our customers provide insights into their experience with Energize. We then analyse these reviews and implement specific changes to our service to drive improvements.
