Roc Search Earns Investors In People’s Gold Accreditation


This is a very proud moment in the Roc Search success story as the international tech and engineering recruiter gains further recognition for maintaining the core values that were set out when the business was formed in 2007. Roc Search’s approach has been simple from the outset: People. Placements. Passion. The company ethos is that anyone can achieve their potential, if the circumstances are right.

Placed 7th by The Sunday Times Top 100 in The Best Small Companies To Work For 2016, Roc Search is already multi award winning, the recipient of various recruitment industry awards and nominations, winning Best Management Team at The Thames Valley Business Awards 2015 and gaining supplier recognition for excellent service, receiving HCL’s Best Temporary Recruiter Award earlier this year.

At Roc Search, positive working environments and excellent benefits are the norm and encourage collaboration and having fun at work. There is a strong learning culture with a focus on personal development, and a general awareness that the company’s expansion and success goes hand in hand with on-going individual professional development. Leadership skills are nurtured at all levels encouraging personal buy-in from individuals who are trusted with responsibility from early stages in the Roc Search career path.

Founder and Managing Director, Conor Roughneen, is still hands-on with the day-to-day running of the business. He is supported by an excellent Senior Management Team that leads by example and is passionate about not only what they do, but how and why they do it. They recognise that purpose and process are just as important as outcome for the majority of young people entering today’s workforce.

Conor Roughneen, Founder and Managing Director, Roc Search Group said,

“The business was founded on sound principles and we have fostered a strongly collaborative culture from the outset. High levels of employee engagement are testament to our people-focused approach. Our employees are, and will always be, our greatest asset and the key to our ongoing success. So I am extremely proud that after an in-depth assessment process Roc Search has been recognised by Investors In People and awarded their sought after Gold Accreditation. I look forward to working with Investor in People as we continue to improve our business processes, ensuring our business model is sustainable and serves to promote the continuous improvement and development of our employees, as we enter the next phase of our international expansion.”
