company history

A key factor in DP Connect’s success has been our ability to deliver in the toughest economic conditions. Since 1990, when established by founder Toni Cocozza, we have successfully ridden a series of recessions with our clients, providing the skills which businesses need to survive. We were also there in the good times –  when competition for technical expertise was at its peak.

From the outset we have believed that the IT recruitment industry could do better. DP Connect has proved it can – pushing for higher standards in the industry and offering first-class quality support to our contractors and permanent placements. Over the past three decades our specialist Consultants have kept on top of the latest technologies, demonstrating and sharing their in-depth market knowledge. Technology is the most powerful source shaping business today – so it has never been more vital to recruit the very best talent and to stay ahead of the competition.

DP Connect has been propelled forward with significant investment and growth since April 2017, when Aidan Anglin, CEO, acquired DP Connect following a MBO. Over a 30 year career Aidan has held senior roles within a number of the UK’s major recruitment organisations and has also held a director position with the REC; the governing body of our industry in the UK.

In today’s culture of rapid technological expansion, our specialist consultants are trained to identify emerging trends in the market; progressing towards mastery of their chosen field and we have a core market of IT, Payments, Digital and Cyber recruitment; the country’s most powerful and evolving technologies.

With Aidan at the helm and a dynamic, ambitious team, our business has an exciting future ahead.
