The Client

Capita is a leading supplier of technology enabled solutions and services to public sector organisations.  With a strong track record in working with central and local government, public safety and justice agencies and third sector organisations, our mission is to help our customers intelligently maximise the use of assets and resources to achieve optimal operational efficiency.

The Assignment

Atherton Stone were engaged by Capita in 2015 facilitated by a recommendation from mutual contact.  Following a new contract win, Capita needed to identify candidates across a number of niche technical skill sets for their office in Suffolk.  They had traditionally struggled to find the right calibre of candidate in this location and wanted to partner with a supplier who would approach individuals who were not necessarily looking for a job change rather than relying on the existing candidate pool – many of whom were known to the business.

The Result

Atherton Stone placed two Business Analysts within 3 weeks of being engaged and were introduced to other divisions of the business as a result leading to further placements in the Development team.  The key was providing Capita with access to candidates who they hadn’t previously seen by head hunting from other organisations in the area.


Positions recruited include:

  • Senior Business Analyst
  • Business Analyst


The Candidates view

Dominic Dreut – Business Analyst

Many thanks to Mark for handling my recent recruitment. He made the whole process very easy and his proactive approach meant I was constantly consulted and informed of progress. He then followed this through to ensure everything was in place and I knew what to expect on my start date. I have no hesitation in commending the enthusiasm and professionalism.
