""What makes them different from other agencies is Widen the Net is focussing on quality – not quantity."


We are proud of having played a small part in the success of companies, which have gone to IPO, be acquired for the next step, or end up dominating in their respective marketplace. We have supplied permanent staff, traditional contractors or provided external consultants on a utilised basis.
Companies we have gone on this journey with include:

"They have consistently delivered high calibre candidates across all our global locations; London, Dubai, Washington DC, Sydney, Wellington and Asia, placing candidates into all our business functions and at all levels of seniority."


New technologies demand highly specialised skills, experience, and accreditation, the combination of which may prove difficult to source in a local area.
We will broaden a candidate search to other geographical regions to help. Widen the Net relocates IT specialists from the United States, across Europe and the Middle East, and within the Asia-Pacific region.
We recognise that for our global candidates, an overseas relocation requires a great deal of time, effort, and resources, which is why we assist with relocation at every stage of the process.
