About Us #team



Where it all started - in Glasgow 1998, FPSG was formed by a team of talented recruitment specialists in the IT and Professional Service sectors.

We quickly built a reputation for excellence with clients and candidates by offering flexible solutions through hands on management and diverse recruitment strategies.  We believed that success was best achieved by building lasting relationships.

Our success allowed us to open in Edinburgh and move into international markets by 2000.  We expanded, diversified and introduced value add services, offering our clients something more than just recruitment - we are partners.




Now, we specialise in recruiting talent for IT, Legal and Professional Services roles from individual assignments to major projects and everything in between.

We have grown with our customers and can count many of our early candidates as today's clients - we love it when this happens.

We continue to innovate by offering our clients services such as the Effect-IV video interview platform and the support of our in house marketing team.

We are committed to supporting the communities in which we live and work by being a National Living Wage accredited employer, through our membership of the Employers Network for Equality & Inclusion and by taking the Scottish Business Pledge.
