About Us

BrightBox was established 5 years ago because of our own experiences of recruitment in the software, tech and digital industries. We deliver the quality candidates, with the best skills and the right cultural fit that result in our clients continuing to build a performant business. We lean on our own experiences as business owners and software / technology experts to disrupt the traditional models, working with clients to find creative answers that fit their need and vision, rather than work with the ‘one size fits all’ model.

We continually explore new ways of approaching the old, delivering permanent, contract and team/outcome based solutions to our clients supported by commercials that work for clients. Our deep industry knowledge combined with decades of experience working within the Tech community, means that we are able to appreciate our clients’ needs. This all results in us supporting our clients to perform at their highest level; to be the brightest box.

Service Summary

Testimonial

“Starting up a new, leading edge technology business can be a daunting prospect, especially when it comes to hiring the right team. Given their software / digital heritage we approached BrightBox to understand how they could help me grow my team. From day one we had niche requirements and we were amazed at the pin point accuracy they had with candidate matching, this included assessing the cultural fit for the business we wanted to grow. It was also helpful to talk with the owners about the journey they had been on. I would highly recommend working with BrightBox whether you are a new startup or an established business.”
