02 About us

What we do

We are considered subject matter experts by our clients and we partner with industry leaders and directors for the UK’s most exciting and progressive technology companies. We offer a much broader range of talent services than other providers. This enables us to build closer, more collaborative relationships which means almost every career opportunity listed on this site is exclusive to us and not available anywhere else. This approach enables us to spend more time with you and ensures we make placements that last the distance. We are proud to say that 94.2% of placements we make are still in place after 12 months.  A truly remarkable achievement.

We won’t work with anyone. Every job you see here is for an employer that has passed our ‘Recruitment Fitness’ test. This means that they must be able to offer the right employee value proposition and demonstrate adherence to equality and diversity. This protects you, ensures your career moves in the right direction, and demonstrates that they will value you.

We work with autonomous small teams in big businesses and with smaller, more agile technology companies where we can add value and make a big difference. So we work with startups, scale-ups, shake-ups, the unusual suspects and companies you may not have ever heard of but soon will.

We coach, mentor and advise. We're personal branding experts, CV builders, and tech market specialists. We're approachable, friendly, insightful, never pushy, always positive and we know that your success is our success. Whether you're actively looking, assessing the market in readiness for a move or just need some advice, our team are here for you.

Words that speak for themselves

Professional, Casual and Calm

I talked with Simon and Caroline a few times and they helped me find a job that suits my needs, my skills and I am happy about it. The process was really professional and also in the same time casual and calm. They considered my experience, even my worries, helped with advice and place me in the right role. I am grateful for the caring, patience and all the messages, emails and follow up calls. Thank you.

Attention to Detail

Over the years Simon and the team at EMBS have not only found me my dream job but are now helping me build my marketing department. For me what sets them apart is how they get to know the candidates and the business, matching them up not just based on their CV but on their personality and ethos. Because of this attention to detail they've helped fill my team with amazing people who are able to take my business to the next level and fit seamlessly into the company culture.

Infectious Enthusiasm

5 stars don't seem enough to rate EMBS Talent and specifically Simon Bucknell. Simon is an absolute delight to deal with - he is a head hunter with his finger on the pulse. His enthusiasm is infectious and his experience and advice invaluable. His collaboration with clients and applicants alike and his facilitation of discussions and negotiations makes the entire whole recruitment process stress-free and streamlined. Whether you're looking to hire someone or looking for a new job, you won't go wrong with Simon's help!

I have known the guys at EMBS Talent for some time now, most noticeably Simon Bucknell. Due to the pandemic, I had some unfortunate issues around work, but Simon helped me find my latest role very quickly. I know that Simon and the team work as fast and as professionally as they can, which has helped me no end.

Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness

I had a great experience with Simon from EMBS - he put in some fantastic work to find me multiple appropriate roles that fit my skills and did a great job putting me in touch with some brilliant people, as well as keeping me filled in on the recruitment process as it progressed. Plenty of great support and advice to assist my journey as well!

Now for something completely different…

Are you feeling frustrated in your current role? Do you work in sales or recruitment and fancy a change?


Do you want to find a more positive and fulfilling career where everyone in your team cares about what they do, works collaboratively and with a common purpose? Perhaps it’s time to talk to us about joining our team?


Everyone in our team has the same vision and shares the same values, both professionally and personally. As a people business, it’s essential to be authentic, empathetic, caring, open, and positive. This creates a positive culture that gets results and achieves success, for everyone. We’re not fixated on ‘winning’, this would suggest the game has an end. It’s never over, it’s infinite and it’s this mindset that sets us apart from others in the recruitment industry; where they believe size means more than quality and where high growth is a badge of honour, that satisfies the shareholders but rarely the employees who are often treated as commodities.

It is clear that huge improvements can be made within the recruitment industry and due to our new, unique service offerings, we are able to solve all talent problems and cannot wait to shake things up in 2021. If you wish to be a part of our vision, our future and dare to be different, join us in the pursuit of happiness.
