Awards & Achievements
Spinks have been around 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 Spinks on Site embedded solution. Our in-house team can be live in any business within 5 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 many D&I events throughout the year.
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 10 years, and we can safely say, we haven't looked back! Everyone at Spinks has the opportunity to balance their life with 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, Equality 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&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!
Meet who might be hiring you
At Spinks, we see ourselves as the "Spinks family." We are well connected across all our locations and include our remote workers fully in everything we do.
From quarterly meet-ups to all-Spinks Teams meetings, as well as regular lunch and learns, we do everything we can to include everyone, irrespective of where and how they work.
Also, at Spinks, we encourage and support one another. We see one person's success as everyone's success, and we promote a 'help out' attitude, which means we encourage everyone to roll up their sleeves and 'help out' their colleagues where they can.
Working with us means you will be working with some of the world's leading tech innovators and, since we like to keep-up with our partners in the tech scene, we are also innovative in the tech that we use!
So, if you're keen to work in the tech scene – from Music Tech to Food Tech and Tech for Good – Spinks have partnered with most. And, if you're passionate, motivated and keen to roll up your sleeves and get involved then, Spinks could be the place for you.
