About Us

IT Career Experts


Since 2000 we have partnered with our clients to fulfil their ever-changing talent requirements.

Through this time Vertex IT Solutions has witnessed two recessions along with peaks and troughs of demand. We have adapted our foundation of knowledge inline with our clients’ needs. Moving from client/server requirements to Cloud (PaaS, SaaS & IaaS) environments, the emergence of Open Source technologies and use-ability of Mobile applications.

Trust and relationships are key to this success and we believe that our Candidates are just as important to us as our Clients. Our Candidates trust us because we provide full disclosure to them along with constructive feedback. Our Clients likewise, as we are Technologists; we understand the requirements and therefore have the ability to vet our candidates, ensuring the speed of delivery is impressive.

Our employees are hand-picked, ensuring that our high levels of quality, customer service and professionalism are attained at all times. We believe in rewarding loyalty and hard work, take a look at the image on the right, where we are celebrating 10 years of service from Vin.

Combined, our team has over 150 years experience in the IT Recruitment industry. We follow ISO9000 practice and maintain a fully auditable process.


“Some people can do one thing magnificently, like Michelangelo, and others make things like semiconductors or build 747 airplanes – that type of work requires legions of people. In order to do things well, that can’t be done by one person, you must find extraordinary people.”

Steve Jobs

Speed to hire is essential. The most in-demand talent have options, and businesses that prolong the hiring process are often losing their preferred candidate to competing offers. To counter this, Vertex provides a number of services within a consultative framework.

Our History

Vertex IT Solutions was formed in October 2000 by Tony Cook and Mark Jeffcoat. Tony, coming from an Oracle Technologies background and Mark, having specialised in Networking and Support for many years. This formed the backbone of the organisation for many years until in 2008 we were joined by Keith Jeffcoat, who, from a Development background completed the circle of experience.

Keith, Mark & Tony come from a customer service orientated background and were disillusioned by the recruitment market and in particular the lack of professionalism at that time. It was the aim (and still is) to provide the highest level of customer service possible for both our recruiting clients and our candidates. By doing this we develop long-standing and trusting relationships with both.

Since surviving the worst recession in history, Vertex has gone from strength-to-strength. We now own our offices in Beckenham and employ over 25 skilled recruiters. Currently, we provide expertise across Networking & Infrastructure, Dev Ops, Development (Systems & Web), Oracle Technologies, Testing, Training, IT Sales, Business Intelligence & Big Data, Cloud Technology, Business Analysis and Project/Program Management.

We feel we add huge value to all of our clients and we would be happy to add that value to you.
