“I joined DP Connect because I wanted to work for a niche, specialist agency and I was impressed by the credentials of both the business and Toni. I was also impressed by the length of service so many of the Consultants have, it is somewhere it I can stay for a long time and really build a career”
Cherry Swayne – Head of Cambridge Office
“I joined DP Connect nearly 6 years ago as initially I was looking for a role outside of London but still working in IT recruitment, in a role I could be in for the long term – at my interview I met 2 of the longest serving consultants who have both worked for the company for over 15 years . It’s a great place to work as we have a good mix of people, from Juniors to very experienced people, so there’s always lots of opportunity to both share knowledge and gain knowledge, this also means as a Resourcer within the company I always work on a wide range of industries, roles and projects due to the diverse teams we have, with account managers who all specialise in their own areas. At DP Connect there is always the opportunity to have your views heard and contribute to ideas for the company.”

“I have worked for DP Connect for the last 8 years. The support I have received has been second to none. It has a family feel and everyone is treated equally. DP Connect has given me the opportunity to progress within Recruitment from a Delivery role to a Team Leader to Head of Delivery. As Head of Delivery I have complete ownership of delivery across all three of our offices. With the experience I have gained at DP Connect I am now in a position to assist in making detailed assessments of each client opportunity, guaranteeing client satisfaction in sourcing the best talent in a demanding market. I also decide on what candidate acquisition tools we use across the business. I get to regularly travel to our other offices to help with sourcing strategies and knowledge sharing with new starters. I think DP Connect have a really strong management team, fun environment to work in and offer on-going support to the staff. I have really enjoyed the last 8 years and extremely looking forward to the next chapter.”
Matt Taylor - Head of Delivery, Bromley HQ
“In April 2016 I started an apprenticeship with DP Connect. After being very worried for several months about never being able to find a career I really wanted to get into, I interviewed with DP Connect for their 12 month apprenticeship which, once completed, would give me an NVQ Level 2 in Recruitment. To my luck, I was offered the job and started at DP Connect a week later. It turned out to be one of the best life or career choices I have made to date. I was given constant support and all the training I needed in order to be a successful member of the team. Before starting, I didn’t even know what recruitment was, but I was put into a team with people of all different levels of experience, which enabled me to learn new things from a range of colleagues. I had a Team Leader who spent many hours of my first 12 month period training me and showing me new tricks and tools. I was given targets, just like everyone one else across the business. However, given that I was new to the business there was a great deal of flexibility around these targets to ensure they were achievable and realistic, as they understood I was learning along the way.
