What makes us different?
We're former software engineers, system architects and technical consultants.
We have 20+ years’ experience doing the roles we now recruit for.
So we understand what our candidates do and what our clients want.
We have been on both sides of the interview table.
So we recognise what it's like to be in your shoes.
When you talk to us, we pay close attention to what you want. But we will push back, challenge and even say no if we believe it's in your best interests.
We find the right people for the right role. Not just skills, but fit too. We won’t waste your time. Typically we’ll only introduce a handful of candidates. The right candidates.
You want a multilingual, Fintech-savvy data engineer, with a passion for green causes, to build a cloud-centric analytics platform? We’ll find them.
We give you a shortlist of high-calibre, precisely-matched, fully-briefed candidates.
We understand your technical specifications, because we’ve worked in your industry.
We are your eyes and ears in the market. And your voice. True brand ambassadors.
We are not afraid to challenge the status quo or ask the difficult questions.
Laser-focused, we will tick the boxes on your wish list, technical or otherwise.
We are proud to have built our business through word-of-mouth and referrals.
We don’t deal in mindless keyword matching. We won't shoehorn you into your next role.
We give you timely, honest and constructive feedback at each stage of the process.
We want to share your career journey and build relationships, not just one-off engagements.
We speak your language. We’ve done the roles we recruit for.
We know you’re a person, not a commodity. We champion your best interests at all times.

We particularly enjoy filling roles that can’t be keyword-searched or pigeon-holed. How do you find a techie that can communicate fluently with both the dev team and the C-suite? What is that role even called? We find answering these questions fascinating.
We have helped companies scale rapidly in the UK, across Europe, APAC and the Americas. We have a passion for adapting to cultural nuances and repositioning roles according to geography.
I graduated in Computer Engineering and spent 20 years as a software developer, solution architect and technical consultant, in management consulting and financial services. I changed sides in 2013 and established Mongoose Gray. Since then I’ve worked extensively with startups, scaleups and small businesses.
I have lived and breathed recruitment for over 25 years. I’m experienced in RPO, in-house and agency recruitment. I understand assessment and selection methodology, attraction channels and company-employee value propositions. I built the HR Recruitment function for the Robert Walters Group from scratch.
We'd love to hear from you. Say hello.
We look forward to hearing from you.
