We set out to build a sales team that nourishes high-end sales talent across the tech market. Our business model is ‘search & selection’ centric – meaning we do not advertise or prospect the active market (Job Boards). Instead, we seek to forge long-lasting and on-going connections with the best quota carriers and sales leaders across the tech and software industry.

Placements include graduate and mid-senior appointments across EMEA, working exclusively with ‘Hyper Growth’ Start-Up’s, VC Backed Software/Tech Ventures and Global Tech Leaders.

Consistently working with London’s ‘Fastest Growing Start-up’s’ and the Sunday Times ‘Tech-Track’, our clients are featured in the BBC, Mail Online, The Times, The Sun, Forbes, Wired and tipped for greatness or already established as a trail blazer.


Working collaboratively with our clients we have positioned ourselves as one of the top ‘go to’ businesses for tech hires in London, Bristol and Berkshire. Sourcing and placing the best people, we nourish high end talent sourced though ‘head hunting’ and deliver this into some of the UK’s leading businesses – mainly across the software and Utilities industry. We work exclusively with a number of award winning businesses and strive to source and engage with the very best people – consistently delivering on hard to fill roles.

Placements encompass the entire IT spectrum from 1st line support engineers to Software Developers and IT Directors.


With a sole focus on the UK Energy market, we work with a range of companies from leading consultancies in the City of London, to industry CRM providers and large scale Electric and Gas suppliers – across the UK. Placing industry specialist roles which range from ‘heads of’, to compliance and regulatory managers.

In addition we undertake project work centered around the latest programmes – for example SMART metering, placing Project Managers & Business Analysts with hands on project experience.

Our network to industry specialists is un-paralelled and ever growing. We have forged relationships with some amazing companies and are fortunate enough to network with some of the industries leaders.

What our clients say about us
Amanda Stretton
Head of Ops - London

Finding good people is always what helps us as a business. We use Qurious for our niche positions that require expert knowledge and networks. They always un-cover the best people and so far have placed every role we have given them. I highly recommend them.

Alan Johnson
Sales Director - London

After using multiple recruiters, I worked with Qurious who delivered exceptional candidates within a short period of time. They have filled all our Sales roles and we now work exclusively with them.

Adam Burrington
Software Developer – Bristol

Qurious highlighted a handful of select roles for me, organised the interviews and I had three really good job offers. Sadly, I could only take one! Throughout, as a Candidate, they were efficient, informative and selective. A very personable service that connected me with a great company.

Jo Harper
Director – Reading

Genuinely like the guys at Qurious. They are down to earth, knowledgeable, honest and get the job done. There is no compromise on quality and they work relentlessly to find me the best people.

Helen Beuafort
HR Manager – London

We have worked with Qurious for two years now. They spent some time getting to know us but from this they have consistently supplied outstanding Candidates. Not the cheapest supplier we have but definitely the best and I would not hesitate to recommend and commend them on their service and knowledge.

James Harper
CTO – Bristol

I have worked with Qurious for a few years now and they always find me great people. Honest, easy and deliver.

Adam Burridge
Sales Manager – London

Qurious placed me in my first role as a graduate back in 2015 and have since placed me again as a Sales Manager. I will always turn to them first when looking for a role for myself and building a team.
