Silverstone Park environment attracts digital media tech recruiter S-SA

13 February 2020

Silverstone Park’s credentials as a place to be for tech careers has been strengthened further as Stafford-Sharp Associates (S-SA) has become the third industry recruiter to locate to the business estate.

S-SA’s 12-strong team has moved into 850?? sq ft of office space inside the Park’s Innovation Centre – its top floor location giving it some impressive views which include overlooking the neighbouring Silverstone Circuit.

“We are heavily into our digital media and when we saw how MEPC is developing Silverstone Park we knew this place would work very well for us,” commented S-SA founder Darren Sharp.

S-SA is a bespoke recruitment agency that specialises in sourcing talent in digital, IT and E-commerce. Darren founded the business in 2007 and it has gone from strength to strength ever since.

Its client base is impressive and it has worked with many large brands such as Next and Interflora for many years.

Formerly based in Northampton, Darren and co have also built a skilled E-commerce team for one of the town’s most famous employers, Avon.

In addition, a second S-SA office in central Manchester has helped the likes of the BBC, Auto Trader and On the Beach to hire tech talent.

Its reach also goes beyond the UK with a number of thriving tech clients and exciting opportunities in the UAE.

Darren added: “We deal with businesses of all sizes from start-ups right up to large software houses. It’s all about finding the right person for the job and vice-versa.

“We are also proud to be a disability confident-committed employer as we help people with all abilities to find their dream job.

“This is something that is very important to us and we are ecstatic to have recently gained a disability confident-committed badge and certificate where we have committed to ensure our recruitment process is inclusive and accessible at all times.”

It’s clear that MEPC’s developing of Silverstone Park into a hub of high-tech business activity is a perfect fit for S-SA.

Darren added: “It’s a very interactive place and that can only mean even more networking opportunities for us in the future. Not to mention there are great social events all year round!”
