Usurpo

We value bright, ambitious people with integrity who often have an interesting character and a bit of flair. We aren't a micromanagement, KPI obsessed company - we don’t even use them! We are big on communication and that means listening. Listening to great ideas, implementing suggestions, respecting everyone that works with us and valuing their input.

About us

Founded in 2011, Usurpo originally focused on the cyber security software market before moving into the Enterprise Software space in 2016. In 2018 we launched our technical and interim division (IT and IT contract focus). 2019 saw the launch of our Life Sciences function which supports VC backed biotech companies hire executive talent, on a retained basis. In 2021 we are growing all divisions with the addition of building a contract appointments team within Life Sciences.

Whilst Usurpo has 2 UK offices (Reading and sunny Brighton), we serve our clients on an international basis. We have partners in 12 countries (outside of the UK), which gives us a strong unique selling point. All of our consultants can participate and take advantage of this alliance network. When permitted, international travel is encouraged!

We are a people first, values led business. We pride ourselves in creating cohesive collaboration between consultants and divisions. We encourage our people to develop, improve and to become the best you can be. You'll notice from your first day that we listen to our employees, take on board your ideas and action what we agree to. You will not find broken promises here. 

We hire adults and will certainly treat you as one. We offer a vibrant and relaxed culture with humane working hours. Our formal working hours vary, giving you time to see the kids, go to the gym or simply enjoy life outside of work. We are not a KPI obsessed boiler room – we hire people that know what they’re doing, and trust them to do it well. In a nut-shell we have high ambition, delivered with low ego.
