    SQ was founded in 1984 by Bernie Potton, a former Analyst / Programmer and Project Manager who recognised through his own professional experiences, the need for a straightforward IT recruitment agency that understood and could cater for the needs of both the client and candidate.

    SQ's staff possess an IT background or are "home grown" rather than originating from a "sales" background. The intrinsic benefit to both candidate and client is that our team can offer a proper consultative service rather than a sales driven approach.

    An example of this is SQ maintains a "no sales targets" policy - removing the unnecessary pressure and potential unprofessional approach that the majority of our competitors tend to suffer.

    We maintain minimal overheads, through low staff turnover, which in turn allows SQ to offer some of the lowest commission rates within the IT recruitment industry for the UK.
