ERP Associates is a rapidly growing IT recruitment specialist that operates throughout Europe and USA. Since our inception in 2001, we have steadily outperformed our competition by supporting raw talent with innovative internal training and strong processes. Our aim is not to be the biggest, but to be the best supplier of skilled professionals within our niches in the UK, Europe and the USA.

Our business consists of ambitious, hungry and sales oriented people while valuing clients, candidates and other members of staff at our core. We identify niche technology markets where demand for candidates outstrips supply in areas that are exhibiting strong. It is here that we can dominate the market by working more efficiently than our competitors; acquiring excellent talent, high-quality lead generation and deliver a customer-centric solution with a disruptive recruitment model.


Ninety percent of our management team has been crafted from staff that we have trained from the ground up. Recruiting entry-level trainees means we have a massive pool of talent that we can tap into. We prefer to grow our talent in-house and always look to promote internally to reward those that have proven their ability, drive and ambition. Our sales managers, team leaders, operations, sales director and training manager all started as trainees inside the company. We invest heavily in our training and want our staff to grow exponentially during their time working at ERP Associates, in the hope of one day holding shares in the business – something that a number of our management team currently have.

We recruit 90% of our people as trainees and grade all of our consultants based on our 10 points of culture:

    1. Maturity
    2. Intelligence
    3. Team players
    4. Articulate
    5. Fiscally motivated
    6. Natural achievers
    7. Enthusiasm
    8. Sales drive
    9. Ambition
    10. Influence


A common misconception is that recruitment is a basic sales job that entails cold calling and persuasion. Much like the candidates that we source, IT recruitment requires a highly defined skill set. Our consultants have a deep appreciation for their market, their clients and relevant compliance laws across their niche in the UK, Europe and the USA. We host specialist technology training sessions, in which a senior consultant will answer questions and explain the technologies in an understandable manner. This will allow you to become a true expert in your market. We use software specific to recruitment and have a library of resources to ensure you are up to speed quickly in order to make a success of your role, regardless of your experience level in the IT industry.


We invest significantly in training and development. Each consultant enters a structured training program consisting of daily training, followed by review sessions conducted by our in-house training manager. This involves around 90 hours of training throughout your first two months, comprised of individual and group sessions, recruitment role-play, theory and an extensive video library to ensure that you reach your full potential in the recruitment industry as quickly as possible.


Our commission structure and incentives programme means 20 - 22.5% of our total gross profit goes straight to our target-hitting recruitment consultants. Due to our focus on progression, ERP Associates offers an industry-leading remuneration package that includes 3K salary increments and uncapped commission earnings. Based on average performance, those starting on 18k salary with a 42k OTE usually reach 30K salaries with a 65k OTE within 3 years. Besides financial rewards, we foster a competitive yet enjoyable atmosphere by running daily, weekly and monthly incentive and reward schemes.


We give all of our consultants the perfect environment to flourish and we want ERP Associates to be a place that our employees are proud to work in. We understand that you will succeed if you are fond of your workplace. We hold casual Fridays, as well as having access to alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks on a Friday afternoon in our offices. We often have staff away days and regular company social events, such as paid-for nights out locally, plus company BBQs. We always aim to send our employees’ home early on a Friday to enjoy their well-earned weekends!

We also have table tennis and foosball tables, as well as PlayStations in our games room for our employees to use throughout the day.


Unlike other recruitment agencies, we focus on niche technology verticals and maintain regular correspondence with hiring authorities to create a ‘warm’ calling environment for our consultants. As of July 2017, we have over 250,000 candidates on our database and are consistently adding to this through our sourcing team, who are trained to spot relevant candidates and contact them on the candidate’s behalf. We also have a new business function which is specifically designed to find new clients for our consultants and provides an easier process when setting up your own portfolio of candidates and clients. We use cutting-edge software and develop headhunting techniques to ensure that all of our consultants can spot clients and candidates that are not available to most other recruitment companies.
