Stott & May


We are Stott & May

We believe culture comes from within. That’s exactly why our staff dictate the values that we hold dear in all of our internal and external relationships. We are all different. We celebrate those differences. But we also collectively buy into a unique set of core values.

Our Story

In late 2009, Stott and May was founded on the belief that hiring managers should never have to make the choice between time to hire and quality of candidate.

We noticed a gap in the market for a search offering that can combine the speed of contingent recruitment with a high value, high touch, insightful service more commonly found in the executive search space.

A talent solution that's helpful, engaging and stacked full of value add. We've been building our team alongside the technical teams of some of the world's most innovate businesses.

Our 100 employees across London, Los Angeles, Reading, Dublin and New York are cultivating specialist talent communities every day to deliver the connections to drive growth.

I joined Stott and May to help build out their Cyber Security Practice in 2017 initially in New York where I had a good network. In May of 2018, I was tasked with helping build our presence in California, which had been a lifelong dream for me, so I leapt at the opportunity and am excited to see what the future holds as we grow our business in Los Angeles.

Graduate testimonials

“I joined Stott and May 3 years ago as part of the Grad program. I had no previously experience or knowledge about how recruitment worked however from first week of the Grad Scheme I was given the ability to find my feet in the field after an intense weeks course. Coming from being an Estate Agent in a small 5 person office, it was awesome to be a part of a buzzing sales floor. The sales floor is in no means intimidating or overly boisterous but exactly what you need to get in the zone and learn from people around you. I’m the sort of person who needs to physically do something to learn and my manager along with the L&D team were there every step of the way to help me grow. 3 years later I’ve been promoted from Associate to Consultant to Senior to Principal all from having zero experience. You get out what you put in, in Stott and May” – Toby Etherington, Principal Consultant

“I had never worked in recruitment before joining here and having studied a non-related (law) degree at university, I certainly have no regrets since joining Stott and May. Having a clear career path and a dedicated L&D department with the support of my manager has really helped me to progress and constantly find new ways to challenge myself and learn. From the initial interview, everyone has been so welcoming, friendly and supportive! From lunch clubs to office holidays to Christmas parties, the environment is always energetic and fun and you constantly feel rewarded and appreciated for your efforts!” – Ben Fox Software Consultant, DACH

“I joined Stott and May from a previous job in a marketing region, With no prior experience in Recruitment at all! From my very first Call with George, I knew Stott and May was the step in the right direction I needed to enter a career with huge progression within the company and personally. I’m based in the Dublin office and in my short time with the company so far, I’ve already been brought over to the London office on two separate occasions for weeklong Candidate and Client sessions and whilst being over I was welcomed into the office with the same attitude as if I had been with Stott and may for 10 years, the experience was nothing short of amazing. The social aspect and culture within the offices is something that needs to be celebrated as I’ve never worked for a company with this being such a core value. All in all, I could not recommend Stott and May enough to anyone who is thinking about making the leap into a career in recruitment.” Christian Dietz, Associate Recruitment Consultant
