We're Eligo

We don't just recruit people

We built Eligo around them

The dot-com crash hit the industry hard. Sat in our newly rented office above a pawn shop in Wandsworth, we were questioning if we'd made the right decision.
We started the company to put the focus back on the people at the heart of business; to create a culture where recruitment was a partnership built on the foundations of market knowledge, people and personality. Ultimately, where people would enjoy working for - and with - us. 
The past 18 years have seen us grow into new sectors, two offices, and with many more fantastic people. We're always evolving, however, the values and goals that drive your recruitment success remain the same. 
We're confident that we made the right decision and that, in partnering with Eligo, you will be too.

Our Values

​It's all about you

Values matter; they're the fabric that binds the way we hire, we operate, and we work. Quite literally, we started Eligo because of them.

When it came to condensing these into statements, we wanted the words to reflect not only who we are but exactly what you should expect when working for and with Eligo. But look, that's enough about us. It's all about you.

Our history

Your future

Rome wasn't built in a day but they laid brick after brick, day after day. We share a couple of things in common with our Roman friends; Eligo is a Latin word meaning to choose, search, and select, and we've had our fair share of Caesar salads during the summer months too. And just like the continual laying of the bricks, we believe that it's the habits, the values, and drive to improve every day that makes the outcome. We've come a long way since 2001 and have some exciting plans on how we can go even further. Many people have contributed towards our history, so we can contribute towards your future.

    Eligo opens new office in Birmingham

    Our technology division has always been a strong sector at Eligo recruitment and expanding across the UK has always been an ambition. So, when came the opportunity for our Head of Tech, Rick Deller to set up a base in the Midlands, due to wanting to start a family up north, we jumped at the chance! Now with tech divisions based in London and Birmingham, we are able to help even more people with their recruitment needs.

    Eligo Moves to new Wimbledon office!

    18 years on as our sectors and teams grew, from specialist recruiters joining and internal promotions to Eligo academy newbies, we needed a bigger space to call our own! So where to move next? After many years we’ve enjoyed working in the leafy green yet buzzing Wimbledon district, with its quick commutable access to the city, great local businesses, not to mention great restaurants and bars (and the tennis!). So moving 15 minutes down the road into a newly built office was a great opportunity for our employees and the expansion of the Eligo team, whilst still being able to offer the best recruitment service for our clients and candidates.

  • Ian Campbell, Perl Developer

    The Eligo technology team are a breath of fresh air. It's refreshing to work with agents who understand my craft, and who take the time to understand me as a person and what it is I am looking for. If you are working with Open Source technologies and you aren't part of the Eligo family, then you should be. 

  • Matt Robson, Security Consultant

    Eligo provided expert assistance, guidance, advice, and support in finding a new employer. It's rare that you come across a stand out recruitment firm like them; I would recommend them to anyone looking for a new challenge in the sector.

  • Leon Bentham, JKR

    Eligo take the time to understand the environment and the culture of your business which shows in the quality of the candidates they put forward. They have found a number of gems for us and now Eligo are the only recruiter I go to when looking to fill a position in my team. 

  • Rebecca Bendoris, Digiterre

    Eligo has shown great enthusiasm and efficiency in providing the quality candidates we need. They invest time to fully understand our culture and take a real interest in what we do as a business. With new projects around the corner, we're looking forward to working more closely with Eligo to increase our recruitment drive.

  • Laura Li Causi, SAP PM MM Consultant

    Eligo provided me with precise directions to give me a picture of the job opportunity, listened to my needs in evaluating a new opportunity, and provided support throughout the selection process (and even after), helping me clarify and reach my goals. 

  • James Allenby, iDirect

    iDirect primarily engaged Eligo to utilise their network of Front End focused technical talent. Whilst performing well in this area, what really impressed me was their dedication to assisting the organisation across the board, including roles a lot of front-end recruiters would consider way out of their remit. Great service and excellent delivery from Eligo recruitment. 

  • Marco Buttacchio, SAP SD/MM/PP Senior Consultant

    Eligo stands out because they can do something simple and unique at the same time. Many recruiters just want to close their next deal and move on, putting pressure and making you feel insecure. With Eligo, we had an open, honest conversation, exploring my career needs and desires, guiding through every step of the journey towards a great opportunity. There was a transparent relationship of total, mutual trust.

  • Sohonet

    We worked with Eligo on two challenging hires; we couldn’t have asked for better support. Following a detailed briefing session with us on the role, our culture and needs they immediately understood our talent requirements. We were quickly presented with a strong bench of candidates, helping us employ two exceptional staff members to very specific briefs and in short order.
