I've been in the industry since 1994 and have seen incredible changes in the industry, managed to ride out a fair few storms (2001 dotcom crash, 2008 credit crunch, Brexit?) and helped build a number of successful recruitment businesses.

Starting as a C/Sybase recruiter serving the Investment Banking Industry (Bankers Trust, NatWest Markets, Lehman Brothers anyone?), I've specialised in technology ever since and was one of the first people in the U.K. to truly specialise in Cloud Computing, having played a part in the growth of the Salesforce.com implementation boom in 2008/2009 (Bausch & Lomb, Telegraph, News International, Reed Exhibitions).

I've worked for some of the largest and most successful recruitment companies in England (Lorien, ITHR, Pertemps IT) but have found my most productive period working for smaller boutiques where relationships rule over transactions.

It is that philosophy that inspired me to set up Click Digital.

Kraig formed Compucare London in 2013 in partnership with Steve Heywood and the backing of Pertemps Network
