About Us

Making successful people

Our story

Our story began in 1996 when our founder, Paul Huntingdon, decided to establish a recruitment business that was different from every other in the market. He commissioned research which revealed that a lot of people felt they experienced poor service from most recruiters. Paul wanted to change this. It was with this ideal that ARM was born.

From that point on we have achieved far more than could have been imagined nearly 20 years ago. We’ve experienced growth of 58% in revenues in the last five years alone, we've been recognised in over 40 awards and are proud to be ranked the 50th largest recruitment firm in the UK.

We’re excited to work every day with 100 highly talented and passionate recruitment consultants, each an expert in their specialist areas. We’re a team that prides itself on a natural ability to pinpoint talent in some of the most in-demand technology and engineering skill sets. Explore our areas of expertise here.

Each member of our senior management team has an average of 17 years’ industry experience, so you really are in safe hands. What’s more, an incredible 95% of our management team have been with us for over two years and 77% have been here longer than five. We don’t just hire great people; we develop them and keep hold of them.

Our divisions

Over the years the market has changed and so has our business. Since 2014 we have assembled our capability into two divisions:

  • Corporate services which is orientated entirely around servicing high-volume recruitment contracts for large employers.
  • Specialist markets which is focused around securing rewarding career and contract opportunities for candidates with a vast range of employers.

Naturally, our two divisions work closely together to ensure the best possible outcome for our customers. Follow the links above to find out more.
