Established in 1998, Vector’s mission has always been to provide an ethical, first class recruitment consultancy run by Engineers and Scientists for Engineers and Scientists, offering focussed recruitment solutions for the Scientific and high-end Engineering sectors. This approach has enabled Vector to secure a unique position in the UK recruitment industry where we continue to offer a knowledge based service to some of the UK’s most exciting technology companies.


The majority of Vector consultants are degree qualified in Engineering or Science disciplines and offer nearly 50 man-years of technical recruitment experience between them. This ensures solid background knowledge in our specialist areas –we understand the client’s business, we understand the client’s products, we understand the job role and we understand the candidate’s career aspirations and technical skills.


Projected turnover for the current year is £1.25million –large enough to operate successfully but still small enough to care about the detail!


We aim to build long term relationships with our clients, many of whom have now been working with us for over 10 years Relationships such as these are achieved by delivering the very best service, flexible terms and being easy to work with!
