Marlin Green Appoints Grant Thornton to Support its International Expansion


Marlin Green, a leading Pan-European provider of niche IT talent has announced the appointment of Grant Thornton to help shape strategy and unlock opportunities for the next chapter of the company’s growth.

Driven by increasing demand for specialist expertise as well as on the ground support, the expansion programme will add to Marlin Green’s presence in London and Dusseldorf. The company is searching for opportunities in key European cities including Zurich, Geneva, Berlin and Stockholm.

“Having achieved the critical mass necessary to trigger our next phase of growth, increasing our physical presence across Europe is a natural next step,” said Toby Dixon, Co-Founder & CEO Marlin Green. “Following the success of our Dusseldorf office, which opened last year, we’ve identified a number of strategic geographies for expansion and look forward to working with Grant Thornton to optimise our plan.”

Marlin Green’s German operation opened in September last year and has quickly achieved seven-figure revenues.

Honoured with the Queens Award for International Trade earlier this year, the company is expected to record revenue of around GBP 34m and pre-tax profit between GBP 3.5m and GBP 4m this year.

“Our success is the result of a proven formula that’s been engineered and instilled deep into the DNA of the business. The result is a repeatable operational model that can be quickly adopted in any region and produce similar rapid results,” said Dixon.

Established in 2010, Marlin Green is an award-winning recruitment consultancy that has quickly established itself as a leader in its field. In addition to placing in the top 10 of the recruitment industry’s league tables for both growth and profitability, the company’s International success has been recognised with several accolades in 2019.
These include rankings in the Sunday Times Export Track 100 and Financial Times FT1000. The company focuses on contract IT recruitment across three core markets: SAP, Business Intelligence and Big Data.
Marlin Green mobilises IT personnel to a broad client range located in 17 countries throughout Europe operating in industries including automotive, consumer electronics, computing, telecommunications, oil & gas and insurance.
