Who we are

Since 1984, we’ve been providing people with life changing opportunities, and helping companies find solutions to their greatest talent challenges. We connect great companies with great people, project by project, job by job.

Our vision is to be the STEM talent partner of choice, for all of our customers, providing the skills needed to build a better future, one job at a time. We aim to deliver a service that is so trusted that our clients, candidates, colleagues and suppliers recommend us without hesitation. In short, we put our employees and customers at the heart of everything we do.

Gattaca's inaugural GattStock Summer Festival

At the end of our financial year, we hosted a festival for our colleagues and their families to celebrate the incredible achievements of the past 12-months.


Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Whether you’re a colleague, candidate, client or supplier, we strive to build a safe, inclusive and supportive working environment for everyone, founded on our values of trust, professionalism, ambition and fun.

As a business, we promote fair, transparent and inclusive processes. We objectively assess candidates and suppliers based only on their suitability, and we work together with our clients to realise and improve on their own objectives.

Our internal ED&I Network and Working group, formed of and by our Gattaca colleagues, directly influences the changes we make around the business. They help bring the voice of every person to the forefront of the conversation, prioritising our strategic goals to make Gattaca an ever-evolving, inclusive workplace.


Our brands

With more than 500 employees spread across four continents, our community is filled with opportunities to work, learn and grow as a professional.

While our company has changed and evolved significantly over the last 40 years, we haven’t lost the ambitious and culture driven focus that made us different to begin with. You can find out more about our global locations on our website.

When partnering with customers and delivering solutions, our colleagues typically operate under one of our two specialist recruitment brands – Matchtech and Barclay Meade.

Matchtech is an engineering recruitment specialist, with over 35 years of experience in successfully matching engineering professionals with hiring employers in sectors across the engineering industry, all over the world.

Barclay Meade are our professional staffing specialists, providing permanent, interim and consultancy recruitment services across commercial management, finance & accountancy, HR, procurement, sales & marketing and supply chain management.


Recruitment Process

Applying to work with us

Here’s a quick outline of what comes next, and what to expect:

Application: Follow the link to our website to start your journey! We’ll only ask you for the key information we need - there’s no lengthy questions or forms to complete.

A call with one of our friendly Internal Recruiters: Once you’ve applied, we’ll arrange some time for a call with one of our team, to help us find out more about you. On the call, we’ll ask you about the skills and experiences you’d bring to our business as a new colleague. We’ll also ask you some competency and situation questions, to give you a clearer idea about the job and what to expect.

An interview with a hiring manager: If you’re successful here, we’ll invite you to your local office to meet some of our hiring community, and experience our office culture first hand. If you need any additional support or reasonable adjustments , let our team know so that we can make your experience as comfortable and accessible as possible. You’ll have the chance to showcase yourself through a formal competency and situation interview – we’ll let you know what to expect ahead of the day.

Your Employment Offer and Induction : We’ll let you know within 48 hours if you’ll be offered a position with us, and will agree your start date from there. You’ll get started in our training Academy induction alongside other new joiners, where you’ll learn all about your new job, our organisation, and how you can craft your own professional journey here!

Why should I work here?

Career progression opportunities, a fun working environment and competitive benefits are just three of the reasons why our colleagues love working here. By joining Gattaca, you’ll have the chance to take control of your professional journey and have a direct impact on the success of the business – you’ll build networks, learn from colleagues with a wide range of skillsets and expertise, and partner with multiple clients across different sectors. Over 90% of our senior leadership team started with us as consultants and carved out their own paths to success, and you could do the same.

The happiness & job satisfaction of our colleagues is important to us – that’s why we invest heavily in training and wellbeing packages, offer clear progression and development plans, and host a variety of social events throughout the year.

We ask our teams to share their feedback across the year with monthly employee surveys, which give us a real-time snapshot of how we’re doing as an employer. We use this to help us make the right changes that have a real positive impact on our colleagues, and keep us moving forwards as a business.

Our success comes down to the innovation and hard work of our employees, and you can be a part of our success story too!

Culture & Values

What do we believe in?

We’re proud of our reputation and maintain high standards internally and externally. We deliver a professional service that customers do not hesitate to recommend.


We’re high performers, and we operate with edge and pace. Every day, we strive to set an industry example in everything we do and try to make a positive impact on everyone we work with.


We enjoy the work we do and the people we do it with. We collaborate, celebrate and promote a working environment where everyone is valued for their contributions and treated with respect.
