Our vision

To be a world-class technology recruitment partner with a culture built on insight and integrity, delivered with confidence and collaboration. We do more.

Our mission

We work hard and work smart, with a stop-at-nothing commitment to going above and beyond. To meet the needs of our clients and candidates. To be reliable and relied upon. And to build strong, long-lasting relationships across our global network. We deliver more.

We thrive on progress, like the industries we work with. We work hard to adapt, evolve and stay strategically ahead of the game. We pride ourselves on always being forward-thinking and future facing, so we can continuously and consistently benchmark better.


More open

We believe in collaboration. Only by galvanising and building strong relationships (that last), can we consistently go above and beyond for our clients and candidates. We’re people people, who believe in being open, honest and straightforward in all that we do.


More insightful

We understand our clients and the industries they work in, inside out. We know the importance of finding the right person for the job – and the implications of not. With in-depth understanding and clear communication, we do the best for our clients and contribute to their continued success.


Our clients

We’re always interested in how we can help new clients, so if you’re interested in partnering with Mentmore, please get in touch.

Allianz engaged us as part of their global data centre transformation when their consultancy partner 
were unable to supply the quality 
of resources that they required.We made 10 placements with 
them in H2 of 2016 and have continued to make placements since then. This included Technical Architects, Project & Programme Managers, 
Data Centre Managers and 
Technical Migration Managers.


WH Smith were rebuilding their programme delivery function 
and had struggled to fill several positions. We placed their Head of Programme Delivery, subsequently promoted 
to Interim CIO, and then built his team making 9 placements in 6 months. This included PMO, Integration Architect, Security Consultant, Business Analyst and several 
Project Managers.


PwC exclusively engaged us to help build their internal security transformation program (NIS). This program was set up to centralise an internal security organisation to defend their entire member firm network (223,000 users in 160 countries globally) from sophisticated cyber-attacks. Over a 2 month period we successfully placed 3 Cyber Threat Engineers and 2 SOC Analysts within EMEA Threat Detection Centres. We continue to work with them.
