Oliver Bernard is an industry leading technology recruitment consultancy with offices in London and Manchester, established in February 2010 by Billy Jenkins and James Mace. Initially specialising in the Java and Web Development markets, we now deliver complete IT workforce solutions to companies around the World.

Supplying exceptional people to world-class companies.

OB has grown rapidly since our inception in early 2010 - we are now generating a turnover in excess of £40 million and have become one of the leading privately-owned staffing companies in the UK. We partner with ambitious, technology led companies helping them grow and to transform through our unrivalled access to a network of the very best technology talent in the market.

Sourcing technology specialists across all levels of every type of company, our work is supported by countless recommendations from recognised market leading specialists – but don’t just take our word for it, please take a look at what some of our valued clients and candidates say about us in their own words.



We have established a successful and professional reputation by providing a world class service to clients and candidates alike and have a passion to work closely with both, building solid long lasting relationships. We truly believe in giving back to the community we love and host the largest regular Agile meet-up in the City.


    Using our large pool of candidates to help your organisation find talented long-term employees. Providing testing and pre-employment screening services, we take the time to ensure we understand your company and exact requirements and will source the right candidates every time. We provide you with advice on market conditions, salaries, the most sought after tech and what will make your job appeal to the masses.


    Providing you with a fast solution to more urgent, shorter term needs. We have a thorough understanding of the contract market meaning we will fill your requirement in a timely and painless manner. We have invested in the compliance and legal resources needed to make contractual agreements simple and provide clear advice on setting up ltd companies, IR35, opt-out agreements, umbrella services and all other associated legalities.


    Our experienced team will scout organisations where the best passive candidates can be found and provide an intensive evaluation process.  Given our specialist knowledge, we offer clients specific market advice and work side-by-side to create a strategy to head-hunt the best candidates.  We will act as an outsourced recruitment arm and tailor the process to your needs through detailed consultation and constant communication.


    Allowing our customers to outsource as little or as much of their recruitment as required, we will take care of managing suppliers, processing payroll, engaging with staff and giving you both a single relationship manager and consolidated monthly invoice. We can provide our clients with an onsite presence where our team will work closely with HR and hiring managers to ensure quality and a smooth recruitment process.
