About Us

Our story

Having collectively spent 30 years with one of the UK’s largest engineering & technology recruitment firms, Tech Connect Group was founded in 2020 by Geoff Fairgrieve, Joe Collins and Kevin Mundy.​ Operating predominantly within the Aerospace, Automotive, Defence & Motorsport markets, we’ve dedicated our careers to enhancing our knowledge of these 4 sectors whilst developing substantial candidate and client networks within them.​

Each of us are immensely proud of the reputations we’ve built and we decided together that the only way to be truly accountable for the level of service we offer our clients is to shape and maintain those high standards ourselves; and with that, the company was formed. ​ Our business mentalities are aligned; high calibre customer service, delivered in a straightforward manner, by hardworking individuals. A solid blueprint, we feel, for the industry in which we operate and a mantra that we will ensure lies at the heart of everything we do as we grow the organisation.

Why choose us?

For salaried recruitment, our answer is simple: we've developed a fee structure that bucks the trend in the recruitment industry but more importantly, one that mirrors our expertise and approach to business highlighted above. ​

These terms not only seek to offer exceptional value for money to our clients but also to demonstrate the confidence we have in our candidate qualification methods and technical understanding of the vacancies we are assigned. They’ve been designed specifically to drive the right behaviours in the recruiter by directly linking commercial gain to quality of service – a unique proposition in our market.

To that end we offer the following to all our clients;

100% fee rebates for 3 months

Put simply, if the candidate we place earns less than £70,000 pa base salary and does not successfully complete the first 12 weeks of their assignment, regardless of the reason, you get 100% of the fee refunded. No caveats. No small print.

50% of the fee up-front | 50% 6 months after placement

EXECUTIVE SEARCH: most search firms charge per stage for this service with strict rebate terms after placement but our method is different; your first instalment pays for discovery, search, screen, shortlist, introduction and placement of the £70,000+ pa individual. You then don’t pay us a penny more until the candidate has successfully completed 26 weeks at your organisation.

30 years networking | digital marketing | legislation

​3 decades in contract recruitment has allowed us to build substantial candidate networks within the Aerospace, Automotive, Defence & Motorsport industries, as well as solid technical understandings of their working practises.

Candidate attraction methods are evolving so to ensure we stay ahead of the curve we’ve invested in the latest digital marketing platforms, giving us, and in-turn our clients, access to live candidate populations many other recruiters cannot reach.

Partnering with the UK’s leading contractor payrolling, employment law and tax legislation experts means we’re able to offer our clients and contractors clear guidance on the latest regulation changes.
