Our Services

Richard Wheeler Associates first began recruiting permanent IT talent back in the late 80’s for pioneering companies such as Insignia Solutions, Superscape, Bishopsgate Systems and Octel Communications. Unsurprisingly, we’ve made this software engineering focus a priority of our business ever since.

With over 30 years’ experience of emerging and leading-edge technologies, RWA has built a gilt-edged reputation and demonstrable record for tracking down scarce talent at the most challenging end of the market.

Central to RWA’s reputation as a leading cyber security recruitment consultancy has been our work partnering with pioneering, often best-of-class private sector companies - from start-ups to global enterprises - to build teams of top drawer, permanent, security professionals.

Since 1987, security companies such as Clearswift, McAfee, Oracle-Secerno, Gotham Digital Science and Osirium have recruited business critical engineers and specialist cyber security talent through Richard Wheeler Associates.

Today, with increasing numbers of devices connecting to the internet and an increase in cyber-attacks in the UK, the demand for cyber security specialists has never been higher.

Richard Wheeler Associates partners with world leading artificial intelligence (AI) companies to build R&D, machine learning and big data teams - often from the ground up.

Our AI recruitment partners include spin-outs from the University of Oxford, University College London (UCL), Cambridge University, graduates of the Entrepreneur First programme and established scale-ups and SMEs. All are ground-breaking, working at the cutting edge of AI, machine learning and data science.

Richard Wheeler Associates has a keen interest in, and knowledge of, the cleantech sector and partners with pioneering companies - from ambitious start-ups to established global businesses - to build teams of specialist cleantech professionals.

Here at RWA we’re enthusiastic supporters of green technologies and sustainability. We know that in addition to looking for seriously skilled people, every candidate must share your passion for clean technology.

Typical of our clients in the cleantech field are PassivSystems, a Global cleantech 100 company and Red Herring Global Finalist with one of the most technologically advanced and affordable Home Energy Management Systems in the world; Energy Systems Catapult, an independent, not-for-profit centre of excellence that takes a whole-systems view of the energy sector in order to decarbonise the energy system at the lowest cost.

Richard Wheeler Associates is a leading start-up technology recruitment company with a particular understanding of the dynamic culture and commercial demands within the high tech start-up community.

Since 1987 we’ve played a pivotal role partnering with UK start-ups, scale-ups and university spin-outs to build software teams. These relationships have proved enduring. ALL (yes ALL!) are award winning. The bar to joining these top flight companies is high.

Through partnering with RWA over the longer term such companies have successfully built and grown their businesses from the ground up - Content Technologies (Clearswift), McAfee, Superscape (Glu), PassivSystems, Octel Communications (Avaya), Diffblue, Intelligent Environments, Insignia Solutions, Osirium - to name just a few.
