Who are we?

We are global leaders in technical recruitment, partnering with international companies to deliver top-tier talent solutions across the tech, engineering, life sciences, and government sectors. Founded in 2009 as a small consultancy with a team of three, Vivid quickly evolved. By 2014, we expanded to a larger London space, established our first Manchester office, and won several prestigious awards including ‘Best Recruiter’ at the Global Recruiter Awards. 


A decade later, we stand proudly in the top 1% of recruitment consultancies worldwide, with eleven offices across the UK, US and Europe. Our dedicated team has moved from strength to strength, earning multiple awards and aiding some of the most innovative businesses in securing quality candidates. As we witness our employees surpass their goals, we remain committed to nurturing the next generation of successes – and one of them could be you.
