Stott and May

What Hunted Says

Stott and May class themselves as much a tech company, as they do a recruitment company. Which is no surprise with the amount of technology they utilise to make their consultants' jobs easier- including a custom built AI software that takes the strain out of business development. Maybe this is why they work with some of the most disruptive tech companies out there. Maybe this is why they work such a high percentage of their assignments on a retained basis. And maybe this is why they have recruiters billing £1.5million a year. You can expect offices to feature quirky elements from VR Goggles and cinema screens alongside the bar and table tennis facilities that so many start-ups offer these days. Other perks include flexible working, lunch clubs and two incentive trips a year.

A message from Stephen Stott

Thanks for taking the time learn more about our company - feel free to get in touch, we'd love to get to know you better. We really want to do things differently and revolutionise the way talent acquisition is delivered. This is a truly people-centric business. As a result, the most important people in any room are our consultants. Clients are important, as are candidates, but if our employees aren’t relentlessly passionate about what they do and where they work, we’ll never do justice by either. You have the opportunity to shape the next chapter of this incredible journey. If you want to work with some of the most exciting technology focused brands in the world and be part of a high performing, uber commited team - then read on.

The perfect marriage of quality & speed

We've experienced high double digit growth year on year and now deliver annual revenues exceeding £50 million. To thrive in this rapidly changing and increasingly competitive recruitment landscape, you need to find an angle. A USP. A reason for people to use us. Stott and May bridge the gap between the pace and volume of contingent recruitment and the quality and service associated with executive search. The deep relationships we have developed with some of the world’s most innovative and exciting technology brands demonstrates our ability to execute on this vision.

Our Core Values

We believe culture comes from within. That’s exactly why our staff dictate the values that we hold dear on all relationships. Coming up with those values was a process we called Stottercise. It’s a bit like excersise but not as challenging as it comes naturally to every Stotter. So that you know the type of people you'll be mixing with at Stott and May we've outlined our core values below: Passion Family Need for Speed Deliver on Promises Value Leadership
