About us

Built on the foundations of providing exceptional technical recruitment services, Proactive has been placing specialists for over 15 years, evolving into a market-leader within our niche business units. Operating from a network of offices covering, London, Egham, Milton Keynes, Brighton, Heathrow and Manchester, Proactive has the in-depth knowledge, experience and expertise to make it a powerful force within the engineering market.

Acquired by nGAGE Specialist Recruitment in 2011, Proactive received a platform to increase growth through the Group’s award-winning shared support services. Backed by the resources and infrastructure of a large and successful group, it allows the business to focus firmly on the demands of its candidate and client base.

In 2014, Proactive launched a joint venture start up called AlphaTec Consulting - a specialist technology recruitment consultancy. One year on, AlphaTec is now part of Proactive, having launched an international division and doubled in size in less than 18 months, allowing the business to move into a market-leading position with additional offices and greater capabilities.
