Who are we?

Knowit was originally born out of frustration. Frustration for an industry with a damaged reputation. We felt strongly that we could do things differently and so in early 2013 we opened our doors and as they say – the rest is history. We love challenging the stereotype that so many companies and consultants give our industry and one way we can do this is by not being “generalists" who take on any role. Our team is solely dedicated to building product development teams, and our knowledge of this industry and each skillset puts us in the best place to find amazing people, and help companies build the best tech teams.

We help build Product Development teams, all over the globe.

CO-FOUNDERS - SAMM AND NICK

Why Choose Knowit?

There is just under 40,000 recruitment agencies registered as trading in the UK, so you’re really spoilt for choice! What makes us stand out? The proposition, knowledge, culture and team. We believe that modern recruitment is not purely about KPI’s, long hours and call times. Every individual here has a voice and we are encouraged to express our views and ideas. These are discussed fortnightly as a team and every single person is listened to. We are heavily involved in helping define the direction of the company and we all work together to make sure we deliver an awesome service to our candidates and clients. There is a real sense of purpose when you're helping something develop and grow.

SAMM

Just had an incredible idea that came to his head.

Incentives

We run some pretty cool, all-expenses-paid, company-wide holiday incentives. Think European destinations like Berlin and Ibiza right to awesome hot spots in the States such as Miami and Las Vegas. If you hit your target, you will be staying in the best hotels, eating at the best restaurants and partying in the best clubs. If that doesn't get you motivated, I don't know what will. Not to mention our unbeatable Christmas parties... Our last two were in Amsterdam and Dublin. We don't find out where we're going until we're at the airport.

Culture

Our culture is at the heart of who we are. We work as hard as the rest of them, but have monthly nights out and activities to celebrate the previous months achievements. Coupled with these, we go on awesome holiday incentives to let off some steam. Our team is small and we are all very close, getting along both in and out of work. So forget those Monday morning blues... We feel pretty lucky that we like coming to work and genuinely look forward to seeing one another. We have pool and table-tennis tournaments all throughout the week, just be careful not to get 7 or 11 balled! On Friday's, the pool table conveniently converts into a beer pong table, and the competition gets fierce. Check out our Instagram @Knowit_rec or Twitter page @LifeatKnowit to get an idea of what happens during our working week. Watch our video below for glimpse...

London HQ

You couldn’t get much more central than our London office. There are so many benefits to this, a key one being able to visit our candidates and clients in the city. Being right at the heart of Leicester Square we are completely spoilt for choice, sitting right in the middle of Covent Garden, Picadilly Circus, China Town and Soho. We are surrounded with amazing shopping, restaurants, threatre, bars and nightlife all at our doorstep! ... This makes for really fun team activities and nights out. We also work on top of a cocktail club where you will often find us most Friday evenings.

Working at Knowit

At Knowit, we have a nurturing environment where you are coached towards personal improvement. If you want to work in a business where you have the opportunity to put your ideas forward, be listened to, grow quickly and even own a piece of the company, then let's talk! The benefits we offer, are rare in the world of recruitment. We don't have a KPI heavy environment and employee's are given a lot of trust and autonomy.

LILLI

Office seagull. Always losing things.

Collaboration

We put a very strong emphasis on a collaborative culture and because we're still quite small, it means we can all work closely with one another. We have an open plan work space where we listen to music and have regular team meetings where we are working on projects outside of everyday recruitment. We have fortnightly meetings over beers where we go through the ideas box... Samm and Nick love it when we speak up with idea’s so you can't take a back seat here, we want to hear what everyone has to say! Off the back of a company-wide cultural survey we ran, we identified issues around work-life balance and were given benefits like two-hours free a week (time we don’t have to make up), unlimited holiday if you’re on target, 1.5 hour lunch break for the gym and two days a month where we can work from home.

You will also have sessions with several members across the company to train you on all things recruitment and the specialist markets we work in.

Monthly Team Activities

On the first Friday of each month, we finish around 4pm, go through the ideas box, promotions, awards and general company-happenings. We have a social committee who are in charge of making sure these are planned and booked in each month in advance. If we've had a particularly awesome month then we'll do a fun group activtity. Things we do... - Go-ape - Laser tag - Comedy club - Cocktail making - Go-karting - Annual sports day - Escape rooms - Summer party - Mini golf - Shuffleboarding - Flight club - Quiz night - German beer hall - 'Design my night' events/bars - Rooftop bars - Knowit olympics - Beer pong - Bowling - Treasure hunt - Bubble Football Not so good month?
