Our differentiators divide us from the rest!

Incubator

We are part of the Yonder and Beyond startup incubator, founded by an ex-HTC board member and a digital innovator.

Yonder has facilitated our growth in London, and has given us unique opportunities to work alongside passionate developers, engineers, designers and entrepreneurs in some of the largest industries in tech, from food delivery to VR.

Yonder’s CEO has given us the insight of what it is like from the client side of the recruitment process to force us to think about how to adapt our business. This means that we tailor our business to be different from the average recruiter.


Community

The London technology community is at the heart of our business, and in order to facilitate conversation and discussion around the technologies those we work with care about, we organise and sponsor two meetups: WinOps and London DevOps. These meet monthly and encourage discussion and collaboration around hot topics in the community.

Our unique position as a facilitator between candidates and clients means that we are able to bring the two together, creating valuable relationships in the process.

We are able to host the meetups in some of London’s most prestigious tech venues. If you’re interested to learn more, click the links below!

Story behind Prism Digital

Prism was founded in late 2012 by three guys who met accidentally! After getting to know each other we formed an idea – to create a recruitment consultancy that was genuinely different from the rest. We understand that the world of recruitment has a terrible reputation. Our vision is to approach the market with a completely new mindset.

We would rather retain clients and drive quality than constantly add new clients. This model is effective at all levels - from startups to FTSE100 businesses.

Our 'startup' mentality means that we are hungry and driven, but also focused on building long lasting relationships with clients. Let's grow our businesses together!

Office and Training Manager

I started as a resourcer for the company, then became a 360 consultant and I’m now the Office Manager. Outside of work I like to socialise with friends over drinks and I also enjoy travelling (I squeezed in 7 holidays in 2016). If you manage to catch me in London, you’ll probably find me in a bar in Shoreditch or Clapham!

Drinks: Prosecco

Our Values

Mission Statement

Prism Digital are a recruitment consultancy specialising in technology. We want to foster our clients’ growth by connecting them with the best IT talent. We focus on building real relationships with our clients and candidates, to ensure that business is transparent and honest, and that we can use our intimate knowledge of the technology community to screen the best candidates. With this in mind, it is our mission to connect smart people with outstanding clients.

Transparency

We share everything we can with our employees. We are open and honest about our business and our hiring strategies. Our clients and candidates are kept in the loop at all stages of the process, and we make sure to be prompt and honest with them.

Community

We emphasise building relationships, both internally and externally. From within the company to our clients and candidates, we are focussed on building long-lasting relationships with those we work with, and beyond into the wider technology community. A lot of this comes from engaging with London’s technology communities, whether by attending other meetups or organising our own.

Team Work

Each consultant has their own independent patch that they work, but this does not mean that they’re left to themselves. With a strong emphasis on mentoring and leadership, our more senior consultants take on juniors to train and support. This builds a strong relationship in the company, from directors down to junior consultants, and between each member.

Passion

We are genuinely interested in the technologies that we recruit for. By organising and attending meetups we get to meet people who are as interested, and learn more about our specialisms. This passion means that we put our all effort into our work.

Fun

We embrace quirkiness. From new marketing campaigns to different ways at approaching recruitment, we welcome new ideas from all members of the team, however crazy! From company karaoke nights to trips to Ibiza, we like to embrace the mantra ‘work hard, play hard’. This even extends to our clients, who we like to bring out on nights out. As one of our most trusted clients once said, ‘Prism treat me like a mate, not a margin.’
