X4 Group Makes it to the Top of the Recruiter Fast 50 list


X4 Group, a recruitment agency specialising in Technology, Life-Sciences, Engineering and Construction has made it to 1st place for the fastest Growing IT, Engineering & Pharma recruitment agency in the UK, coming 4th overall. Every year the Recruiter compiles a list of the most successful recruitment agencies in the UK and being the X4 Group’s first year on the list, making it in the top 5 is a huge achievement.

With annual revenues of more than £15 million last year, X4 Group – which was founded in 2008 by Peter Rabey, Glenn Norris and Mike Norris has become one the fastest growing and most successful recruitment agencies in the UK.

Going from just 4 employees back in 2011 to 85 at the beginning of 2017, the company continues to grow rapidly. In the last 12 months there have been 2 new UK offices open as well as their first international office in New York.

Director Glenn Norris comments:

“We have grown substantially over the past few years and I believe this is tribute to not only the successful relationships we have established with a broad range of key clients across our specialist sectors, but the culture and environment we have created within X4 to make it a place that staff genuinely enjoy coming to work. With another office move imminent we are excited to see where the next 2 years take us.”

Although this is the latest recognition of X4 Group’s success and professional excellence, in the last 12 months the company has also been accredited ‘extraordinary’ by The Sunday Times 2017 survey, as well as shortlisted for Recruiters Investing in Talent Awards and the 2016 IRP Awards for Best Workplace Environment.

Director Peter Rabey comments:

“We have managed to establish something that can be very tricky to do, create both a great working environment as well as a highly successful business. The exciting thing is we know there is so much more to come; from our existing staff which we will be tackling by increased expenditure on training both internally and externally, as well as the continued hiring of individuals that want to make something of themselves. It has been a rewarding last 5 years since we started hiring and now we know our model truly works, the future both expanding into the UK and globally is an extremely exciting prospect.”

“As owners we are constantly motivated to making the business a better place to work and with every promotion coming from within, will keep engaging with staff to ensure all the aims of the business are achieved.”
