Empiric is a company that doesn't believe in the slowly, slowly approach. While the recruitment business expands at an international level, it also provides encouragement for ambitious staff by offering clear promotion and advancement opportunities.

In addition to family-friendly policies, lifestyle benefits, and confidential help and counselling (invaluable during lockdowns), it also supports staff through continuous investment in IT. As well as offices in London and Glasgow, it has expanded in Europe and the United States.

Founded in 2005 by Sam Kamyar and Stephan Williams, it styles itself as a unique and inclusive company whose mission to be the No 1 technology and transformation staffing agency across four key areas of technology - data, security, cloud and digital - is underpinned by the business values of Search, Service, Relationships, Ambition, Character and Team Work.

It has won numerous awards, demonstrating Empiric's commitment to its clients, candidates and employees. As well as featuring regularly in Best Companies lists and the Sunday Times Fast Track 100, it picked up the APSCo award for diversity and inclusion in 2015 and has been recognised as a Disability Confident employer.

In 2016 it launched Next Tech Girls, a CSR initiative to achieve gender balance in tech. Empiric garnered the support of partners such as Virgin Money, Vodafone, Wayra Telefonica and the Department for Work and Pensions, all of whom have hosted tech work experiences for young female students over the past five years.

Featured Workplace Factors

My Company

95% of staff agreed

I believe I can make a valuable contribution to the success of this organisation

The leadership team quickly took steps when Covid-19 arrived to ensure the business remained solvent. It also checked that Empiric's technology infrastructure was fit for home-working and employees could stay connected during lockdowns. Mental health became an even greater priority as clients shut up shop and parents became teachers.

Personal Growth

93% of staff agreed

This job is good for my own personal growth

Training and development is a priority whether staff are in the office or working from home, with technologies such as Zoom and Microsoft Teams used as necessary. While some recruitment firms unfortunately had to make trainers redundant or furlough them in 2020, Empiric hired a new trainer.

My Team

95% of staff agreed

My team is fun to work with

People from across the business were brought together to tackle the problems of office silos, which can lead to lost opportunities and a sense of exclusion that is the antithesis of the company's culture. This increased collaboration and creativity across departments, as well as improving workplace cohesion.
