Data Centres

In every facet of life, from communication and commerce to healthcare and education, we generate and rely on enormous volumes of data. Data centres ensure business continuity and disaster recovery. In times of crisis or natural disasters, data centres become invaluable, enabling organisations to quickly recover and resume their operations.

Data centres also contribute to environmental sustainability. Through advancements in energy-efficient technologies and renewable energy sources, they strive to minimise their carbon footprint. By consolidating computing resources in centralised facilities, data centres help optimise energy consumption, reduce electronic waste and promote a greener future.

Our specialist project team source market leading talent for employers across the globe. The infrastructure of the data centre industry is essential for continuous operation. As businesses continue to move to the cloud, the demand for data centre infrastructure is witnessing unprecedented demand, providing growth in the number of opportunities available.

The data centre industry is a global, high growth sector, where careers have exciting fast track opportunities all around the world. Plus, it’s also full of amazing people!


Everywhere. As global recruiters in a global industry, there is opportunity from the EMEA to the USA, to the APAC and any other abbreviations you can think of.

Industry projects you can get involved in

Hyperscale construction projects in Europe, US and APAC, working with operators, developers, general contractors, and specialist consultants.

It’s important that data centres remain secure and therefore confidential, but for recent news on projects and proposals, read Andy’s newsletter here . You can find an array of upcoming industry projects from around the world, giving you insight into what the future holds, all in one place.

We recruit for the whole lifecycle of data centres, from development and design, through to construction and operation. Whether it is a small or major project, or long-term live facilities you want to get involved in, we have the recruitment solution for you.
