2017 – A Year in Review

2017 – What a year! The 10th anniversary year of Roc Search, the opening of our New York office, our first employee to mark 10 years with us and our new Reading HQ - just to name a few of the highlights. And now, as we begin our journey into 2018, it’s time to reflect on our successes.

The highlight of last year was of course our 10 year anniversary celebration. What started as a small recruitment outfit at my home in Reading, has now grown to an internationally renowned recruitment company with a revenue of £38M, 140 Staff and Offices in Reading, London, Manchester, Truro, Frankfurt, Austin and New York. A remarkable achievement for which we invited our entire workforce on a VIP weekend experience at the Tivoli hotel in the marina of Vilamoura, Portugal. We wanted to thank all of our employees for their contribution to the Roc Search success – and what a weekend it was! Be sure to check out all the photos and videos on our Facebook and Instagram pages.


This 10 year anniversary also means that we are seeing our first employees achieving their ten year work anniversary with us. In 2007, Ryan Chant became the second Roc Search employee back when the company was in its infancy. Ryan joined Roc Search with no prior experience in the recruitment industry, and is now heading up our Tank Business in Truro. He’s been instrumental in developing Roc Search to what we are today.


Our second highlight has to be the move to our new HQ in Reading in December. The Reading office has expanded significantly over the ten years. With this being the third office move in Reading since 2007 we are now in the prestigious ‘White Building’ in the heart of the town, allowing us to grow in excess of 200 staff. Every detail has been looked into. The building offers 80% daylight at all times, it offers showers, parking and also a roof terrace. The office features bespoke sales floors geared toward the markets we cover along with chill out areas, scooters, themed meeting rooms and a bar - just to mention a few details.


Our international expansion also continued this year with our office opening in New York last July. Based near Penn Station in the heart of Manhattan this office will allow us to expand on the fantastic work the Austin team had already done in developing the US Tech recruitment business.

We have also continued supporting charities by organising and being involved in various fundraising activities. From the annual Roc Search Santa Run in Reading to this year’s unique Christmas Toy appeal where we teamed up with Reading Family Aid to collect as many toys for struggling children in and around the Reading area. As part of this campaign, our staff were happy to cancel our Secret Santa tradition and instead donate their gift to the Christmas Toy Appeal.


It’s been a great year for all of us at Roc Search. We worked hard and we played hard. The secret of our success is in our employees as well as our dedication to making Roc Search the best recruitment company to work for. We have our strategy in place and an incredibly strong team to support this. We’re ready to continue our successes going into 2018. This year where we will focus on growing our UK business and further developing our international business. To this end I’d like to announce that I have relocated to the US for the next 6 months to guide our teams in Austin and New York to the next level of their success.


Thanks to everybody who contributed to our success in 2017. Our employees, our clients, our suppliers and everybody else who has been involved with our business. Without your support, none of this would have been possible. If you haven’t been to our new Reading HQ, we really hope to see you there in the new year to share a bit of our exciting company culture with you.

Have a fantastic 2018 everyone!
