The year of 2018 marks the 30th Anniversary for Hi-Calibre International since their inception in 1988 by the 2 Directors as the First Executive & IT Recruitment Solutions Consultants in Maidenhead, Berkshire, UK.
Both Directors are originally from a career in IT & Software Companies.
In a recent Interview – they were asked about the 30 years and what the challenges and Key achievements have been:
One of the highlights has been helping Global Leaders to build strong quality Teams for Businesses delivering new & exciting technologies for tomorrow’s needs. Also assisting thousands of excellent Professional candidates of all levels advance their career plan and improve their future prospects.
Back in 1988, they felt that at the time the IT industry and business needs for computer power was expanding and becoming more complex as a Business Solution which had created a real gap in the market for a quality Recruitment Service that understood business growth needs as well as complex IT requirements.
Hi-Calibre was created with this concept which has been the key to their success – to provide a mix of in-depth knowledge to source Business & IT Technical experts for fast growth UK & Global Leaders in Technologies or Business Services.
