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

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.

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 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.

NICK

Spends all his time outside of work attending stag-dos

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...

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 even have a social committee who are in charge of making sure these are planned and booked in each month. 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 - Knowit sports day - Escape rooms - Mini golf - Shuffleboarding - Flight club - Quiz night - Fancy rooftop bars - Knowit olympics - Beer pong - Bowling - Treasure hunt - Table tennis Not so good month? We'll still do fun games in the office, grab some pizza and head out for drinks!

Half-human, half-robot. Does deals in his sleep.

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.

We are proud to say that we have an extensive 'Knowit' training programme for all levels, that we have developed internally from what we've seen works and what we know doesn't.
