Primis Talent, a technology recruitment firm that’s recently launched and is operating in the UK and US is on a mission to improve “the D&I landscape in the technology sector.”
The company’s founder, Ben Broughton, has said the company “will have a focus on putting people first in every aspect of the recruitment process.” To put these promises into action, Primis will offer D&I and unconscious bias training to the hiring manager of Primis clients as well as within their own workforce.
“We are a growth business and will achieve this through a mixture of senior hires as well as organic growth through a structured training academy,” said Broughton.
Broughton is joined by Steve Wynne, the Founder of financial services firm Kingsbridge as Non-Executive Chairman as well as a high profile non-exec team including seasoned strategic management professional Faisel Choudhry; Kim Gray, Head of D&I at NTT DATA and James Mainard, who has spent the last 35 years leading the design, development, and market deployment of cutting-edge technology solutions for the Aerospace, Entertainment, Automotive, Insurance and Beauty sectors.
Ann Swain, Chief Executive of The Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo), said:
“Ben has been a great asset to APSCo over recent years as Chair of our IT sector group – a role which he will be continuing with Primis – one of our newest members. At Premier, he headed up a very successful business, and I am sure Primis will be equally as successful and look forward to APSCo supporting it on its journey.”
Broughton said: “We have a best-in-class training solution delivered by a team that includes Faisel Choudhry who has worked with The Bank of England; Chikere Igbokwe, an experienced Executive Recruiter and D&I Leader and Jina Etienne, who became the first national leader for D&I at Grant Thornton, in the USA.”
