About SThree Group

Like all great ideas, four friends had a great idea to combine their experience and we founded Computer Futures because of the skills shortage within IT and propositioned ourselves as a business that really understands the sector.

Fast-forward to 2015 and we have grown our business to become the world's largest Recruitment provider. We are now the only Recruitment employer to be awarded as one of 'The Times Top 50 Employers of Women 2014 and 2015'. We are a team of 2700 across 45 offices in 15 countries; we have great open plan offices in some of the most incredible locations such as Times Square, overlooking Sydney Harbour and just off Europe's busiest shopping street, Oxford Street London.
