New year, further success. Building on our first 15 years.

In August, we celebrated the 15 year anniversary of the launch of Recruit 121.

Now, in our 15th year we are building on our success with the appointment of five new employees, the launch of two new divisions and a move to our new offices in Capital Tower, Cardiff.

The recent growth within the Cardiff office responds to an increasing demand for SAP (systems, applications and products in data processing) recruitment services and the introduction of a dedicated recruitment service for finance roles, showing a commitment to expanding the expertise of Recruit 121 to become a trusted brand in the wider recruitment sector.

Recruit 121’s new faces:

Our new recruits are Emma Peterson, Darren Wilcox, Connor Wall, Guy Guest and Abby Hughes. Emma, 40, from Cardiff, is heading up our new accounting and finance division.

Emma said: “I’m really pleased to be taking on the exciting challenge of launching a brand new division for Recruit 121. The company has an excellent reputation and is recognised internationally as a market leader in the area of SAP recruitment.

“My aim is to establish the Recruit 121 brand in the financial recruitment sector and build a strong team, which focuses on sector knowledge and excellent client relationships.”

New office toast

Recruit 121’s new offices:

We are delighted to have moved into our new offices on the 14th floor of Cardiff’s iconic Capital Tower. The new offices will provide us with much-needed space for the growing team and new furniture and technology, including two 65-inch screens for video conferencing.

Our managing director, Che Hookings, said: “We have seen Recruit 121 develop significantly over the past 15 years and our Cardiff team is now proud to be a globally-recognised source of expertise in SAP recruitment.

“We have placed thousands of candidates for more than 500 SAP customers around the world and we continue to expand our client base.

“While SAP might not be familiar to many, it has been estimated that US$600bn are transacted on the SAP network annually, which is 50% more than Amazon, Alibaba and eBay combined.

“Our turnover for the Cardiff office last year was £10.2m, which represented a 5% increase on the previous year.

“We see an opportunity to capitalise on the knowledge and reputation we have built-up, over the past 15 years, and take Recruit 121 to the next level.

“We are confident that we can successfully expand our business model. The introduction of new areas of specialist recruitment, the new office and the latest additions to the team will be instrumental in helping us to achieve that. We are all looking ahead to the next 15 years and to what we can achieve.”


Do you remember the first time?

Whilst all at Recruit 121 in the UK look forward with anticipation to 2015, we have been reflecting on the past.

It has been an incredible 14 years since Recruit 121 Limited was first incorporated in the UK.  Since then we have seen Recruit 121 LLC grow business significantly in the US and our international team develop to a point that we have concluded over 3,500 placements with the world’s most talented SAP consultants in many of the most highly-regarded global companies. 

We have seen much change in this time.  SAP has grown in popularity, market share and has continued to expand through the acquisition of a variety of dynamic competitors and complimentors, including the recent $8.3bn acquisition of Concur.  Much has changed in the sphere of recruitment too:  The growth of social media in general and LinkedIn in particular have radically altered the way that our customers, other agencies and potential recruits engage with each other.

We would love to hear back from you, be it on Twitter (@Recruit121_SAP), Facebook (Recruit121_EMEA) LinkedIn (Recruit 121 Limited) or via the form below, to discover how you first heard about Recruit 121 and how you would like to find out about exciting future opportunies, SAP news and events?  For those kind enough to respond by Sunday November 30, 2014, we will enter you into a draw to win £50 of vouchers or a gift of an equivalent value.

We eagerly await your response and look forward to working with you in 2015!
