Tech recruiter SPG Resourcing expands in US with key hire

Technology recruitment specialist SPG Resourcing has launched its first international operations in the US following the appointment of Ben Alston as principal consultant.

Alston brings a wealth of experience in the technology sector, having held senior positions in global recruitment companies, and developing expertise in cloud technologies and e-commerce.

The firm plans to open a US office next year to serve its clients. SPG Resourcing has experienced rapid growth and has a team of 18 professionals across Leeds and Newcastle. It achieved revenue of £3.85m last year and is on track to reach £7m in revenue for 2023.

The firm also plans to create 10 new jobs over the coming year.

Sam Hameed, co-founder and managing director of SPG Resourcing, added: “The US tech sector is worth nearly $2 trillion (£1.6tn), and we believe that it holds a significant opportunity for SPG. Ben brings a wealth of experience and insight to the role as we launch into a new market for our business.”

SPG Resourcing is part of the Solution Performance Group, which helps companies achieve their digital transformation goals by providing technology consultancy, software development and talent recruitment services.

It provides interim and permanent technology resources to many businesses, from insurance and financial services to health, housing and large FTSE businesses.
