Who are we?

In 2009, Vivid was founded. By 2014 we had moved to a 3x bigger space in London, opened our Manchester office and won several awards including Best Recruiter at the Global Recruiter awards! As of 2022 we now have a headcount of over 200 staff across 9 offices in 5 different European countries!

We have hired the best people and kept them on board by being a fantastic place to work and grow a career. Their skills and drive to succeed have helped us become one of the top recruitment agencies in the world, working with amazing businesses across the globe.

Our team has gone from strength to strength, winning awards and helping some of the most exciting businesses find quality candidates. We’ve watched our employees grow and meet their goals, and we will continue to do so as we find our next successes, which you could be a part of.
