What Spinks employees think

We trust each other and you can feel how comfortable we all are as a team, with some here for 15 plus years and others 15 weeks we are all in it together and valued for what we bring to the table. Nice to be in an environment for a good part of your week that has positive energy.

Working at Spinks you get support that helps your career first and foremost, not just the company. Having tailored career path's for everyone to make sure they can maximise their potential is the norm and something I can honestly say I've been able to benefit from immensely.

Spinks is an incredibly supportive and motivating company to work for. I never worry about booking important appointments throughout the week, I know I will be able to work around them and be supported.

About us

Spinks have been a partner to the tech industry for over 30 years. We started off in 1989, in the early days of IT recruitment and, we have since grown and evolved alongside our tech partners.🚀

We specialise in finding top talent for the start-up and scale-up communities. This can include varying roles from DevOps, to Frontend and Backend Engineers to Project Managers, C-Suite positions, CTOs and Sales people.

We also have our embedded solution, Spinks on Site. Our in-house team can be live in any business within days and effortlessly hire multiple people so that quickly scaling organisations can have the teams they need to fuel their success.

Spinks also like to share the experience and expertise we have gained in the last 30 years. So, alongside our start-up and scale-up partners, we release regular white papers addressing key business areas (e.g. The Importance of Diversity and Inclusion, How to Onboard People Well and more). We also share videocasts, online panel discussions, as well as D,E&I events throughout the year.✨

And we love to reward our teams for helping great talent find great teams to join as well as supporting organisations as they grow their tech teams...

Spinks Incentive winners 2022 had an amazing time in Portugal in May!  All that hard work, challenges and successes were worth all the effort.  It’s important our people can strive for promotion, earn great commission and partner with innovative start up’s an scale up business however its an added recognition to then win a place on the Incentive Trip too🛫🏝🌊

Recruitment has evolved so much and Spinks are very proud to be leaders creating rewarding careers. Well done to the London and Manchester teams!🏆

Flexible working at Spinks

Spinks adopted and has been a flexible place to work since 2012. We were keen to support different lifestyles and personal needs so, we introduced flexible working as a trial initially. We wanted to test whether it would work in practice and truly give people a better work-life balance.

It has now been over 10 years, and we can safely say, we haven't looked back! Everyone at Spinks has the opportunity to balance their life and work, be supported by our flexible teams (irrespective of where they choose to work from) and still get fulfilment from their roles. We now also have some people working fully remote.

We have office spaces in London, Birmingham and Manchester (new offices coming soon!), shared Microsoft Teams chats, so that we can all stay connected, and we welcome cross-office visits. In short, we see Spinks as a family and we do our best to make sure our family community stays connected.

Approach to diversity & inclusion

Spinks has its very own #YouEqualTech community. We are massive advocates of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, so much so, we set up our own D&I brand and community.

We created #YouEqualTech in 2011, for CEO, founders, talent partners, business leaders, tech professionals, students, teachers and parents. It's aim – to help everyone keep up-to-speed with the latest news and advice on D,E&I practices and help our start-up and scale-up partners understand how they can take steps towards creating a more inclusive technology sector.

We collaborate with businesses and experts within the space to help share insights and tips on how to achieve a more diverse and inclusive tech space.💡🎯

What do we think of Spinks?

Spinks were fantastic throughout their flexible employer accreditation. In fact, to have both your employer and employee benchmarking scores come out so close to one another is quite rare. This shows that both employees and senior leaders at Spinks are very much on the same page. I highly recommend candidates looking to get in to recruitment to apply to roles at Spinks – it can often be hard to find true flexibility in this sector!
