2017 WHERE IT ALL STARTED

APRIL

Every great story needs a beginning and, for us, that was April 2017 when Tempting Ventures opened its first London office and announced a minority investment from Hydrogen Group.

AUGUST

We launched our first brand, Tempting Talent, who focus on the US Recruitment to Recruitment market.


SEPTEMBER

We invested our second business, RO. As a start-up, RO began with a laser-like focus on the US Solar industry.

NOVEMBER

After two successful start-up launches, we shifted strategy and supported a management buyout of UK-based Uniting Ambition who are specialists in the UK tech sector. We helped Management to restructure and narrow the focus of the business, increasing profitability and presence across defined technology verticals.

2018 THE HARD WORK PAID OFF

JANUARY

A month of exciting growth. We reported the Portfolio's first months consolidated profit. Tempting Ventures, Tempting Talent and RO moved HQ to a larger office space in Eccleston Square, Victoria.

JULY

We launched Uniting Cloud, specialists in technical recruitment across specific verticals within Cloud technology. Based in the UK and covering the UK market, Uniting Cloud leveraged our network of UK offices and talent acquisition function to ramp up headcount quickly.

OCTOBER

For the first time, the Portfolio achieves £100k EBIT in a month.

DECEMBER

The Portfolio achieves £3.8m 2018 NFI.

2019 EXPLOSIVE GROWTH

APRIL

We invested in Eastward Partners, an established Executive Search Firm in New York.

September

We launched Uniting Enterprise who specialise in delivering recruitment solutions for German S/4HANA and SuccessFactors professionals.

DECEMBER

Our Portfolio finished the second full year of trading with a headcount of 70, £22m Revenue, £6m NFI and £600k EBIT

2020 AGAINST ALL ODDS

JANUARY

After massive success and growth within US Solar, RO expanded into other niche verticals across Clean Energy & Infrastructure within the US.

FEBRUARY

Tempting Talent opened an office in New York to support their growing client base and hiring demands from within the Portfolio.

March - DECEMBER

As Covid-19 hit global markets, we collated all the expertise within the Portfolio and adapted our processes, technology and marketing behaviours to ensure we could still maintain our high levels of delivery to clients and candidates. After weathering the storm, we came out the other side a better business. We're super proud that across our Portfolio we were able to maintain 90% headcount for this period.

Despite the odds, in 2020 the Portfolio is set to deliver c.£5.7m NFI and match 2019 EBIT of £600k​
