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 that spans the UK and abroad, Proactive has the in-depth knowledge, experience and expertise to make it a powerful force within the STEM 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. Three years on, it is now part of Proactive, having launched an international division and doubled in size, allowing the business to move into a market-leading position with additional offices and greater capabilities.
