Walks around the streets of London and Hong Kong gave birth to recruiter, Orbis. Its co-founders, Craig Davies and Wayne Hilditch, were based at opposite ends of the globe, but talked almost daily of their vision for the company they would run together.

Orbis's name, meaning "global", reflects the mission to create a worldwide recruitment agency, catering to diverse tech markets. It was set up in the back of a friend's office with five staff, but now has more than 50 employees, based in London, Amsterdam, New York, Nashville, Miami, Los Angeles and Austin.

There are plans to more than double that number to 120 employees by the end of 2022, with seven office sites across three continents.

Its clients include online homewares seller, Wayfair, review website, Tripadvisor, and financial media and data company, Bloomberg. Alongside recruitment, the company offers a bespoke employer branding package.

Orbis’s driving values are "be real", "inspire excellence" and "exceed expectations". They are reflected in the company culture. Working for Orbis means having the freedom to challenge things, receive the support you need to thrive and an alternative to a strict culture based on key performance indicators.

For staff, Orbis cultivates an environment in which colleagues are supported and their achievement is celebrated. It says: "We maintain a mindset in which we all strive to be our best. Everyone on the team is genuinely encouraging and proud of one another."

Featured Workplace Factors

My Team

I feel a strong sense of family in my team

Knowing how daunting it can feel to return from annual leave and come back to a huge backlog, Orbis has implemented new 'handover guidelines' to prevent work building up and ensure employees are not tempted to work whilst off. The new guidelines ensure all colleagues feel supported and highlight the benefits of necessary rest.

My organisation encourages charitable activities

The company uses offices run by property firm, WeWork, which means it adopts their meat-free menu, which encourages lower meat consumption. The coffee is always Fairtrade, the lighting in buildings is automatic, and single-use plastics are banned.

Quote from the top...
I think the best way you can engage someone is to give them a platform to be the best version of themselves. But also, an environment where they feel comfortable to challenge stuff, at any level, in the right way. That challenge culture means we encourage each other to grow and be better. It’s about a collective growth mindset.

Craig Davies, Co-Founder - Orbis
