Recruitment consultancy Expert Resource is built on its network of proven, tried and tested experts. Specialising in the SAP, Oracle, Salesforce, and IT markets, they deliver bespoke resource solutions to companies, including FTSE 100 and 250, across the UK & Ireland, Europe, MENA, and the US. The business was launched late last year in partnership with Recruitment Entrepreneur, James Caan CBE’s leading global investor in small to mid-size recruitment start-ups. 

Expert Resource was founded by Jonathan Atkinson, who has spent more than a decade building relationships with the top clients and candidates in these niche IT verticals. On the launch, Jonathan Atkinson said:

“I’m incredibly excited to have launched my own business. I have a clear vision of how I believe recruitment should be done and the brand that I want to build and it’s fantastic that Recruitment Entrepreneur have backed this vision. Exceptional, people-driven service is Expert Resource’s core ethos. In such a skill-driven market, it’s imperative that we, as recruiters, understand the nuances of these skillsets and have an extensive network which enables us to cherry pick the perfect candidate for any given role. Our expertise spans permanent, contract and FTC placements, enabling us to fulfil all our clients’ talent requirements.”

Chairman of James Caan CBE commented, “While not immune to the effects of the past year, the IT sector fared far better than most and is set to bounce back to its pre-pandemic growth rate in 2021. There will be high demand and competition for the best talent in the market, as well as for the advice and consultation that specialists such as Expert Resource can provide to clients and candidates alike. With their database of proven, tried and tested experts, I have no doubt that Expert Resource will quickly establish a reputation as the go-to IT resource partner.”

As part of the Recruitment Entrepreneur portfolio, Expert Resource has access to ongoing mentoring, plus the operational support and infrastructure of the wider group. The business itself is a start-up, which champions innovation and flexibility, however being bolstered by a multi-million, global company allows it to stand out in the market from day one and achieve rapid, sustained growth. 

Abid Hamid, CEO of Recruitment Entrepreneur: “Jonathan Atkinson stood out as an investment prospect due to his unmatched knowledge of and passion for the markets he works in. Since setting up a few months ago he has already hit the ground running and I look forward to seeing where he takes Expert Resource next.”
