New tech recruitment firm Primis makes pledge to client and organisational D&I

Founder Ben Broughton has said the company “will have a focus on putting people first in every aspect of the recruitment process"

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.

“We want to educate and expand the views of tech communities across the UK and US when it comes to hiring diverse teams,” he continued.

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.”
