Who we are


To bring together leading organisations with exceptional IT talent.


To achieve our mission, our core values are all about keeping it simple.

  • Client Commitment: we seek long-term relationships by getting to know our clients’ business, markets and culture, whilst advising candidates on what they need to know; the good the bad and the ugly
  • Candidate Respect: supporting the candidates we work with – advising on development, employment and market trends, enabling your personal career objectives
  • Integrity: we do what we say we are going to do


Perfect People began life in 2000, under the umbrella of what is now a Global Cisco Gold partner.

After a successful start, the company was released in 2002 to become a stand-alone recruitment provider.Since then we have continued to grow through exemplary levels of service to our clients and candidates.

Perfect People is now considered an authority and trusted provider within the enterprise networking and security sector. We pride ourselves on this and strive to maintain this valued position by continuing to listen, develop and enable the markets we serve.

Darren is our Founder, he’s been building solid client relationships and recruiting technical professionals in the Networking and Infrastructure space since 1999 and comes with a wealth of knowledge in the IT staffing and solutions industry and having worked within a Cisco Gold Partner, appreciates the drivers associated with a bad hire – for both the client and candidate. Aside from Perfect People, he enjoys quality family time, sports and sporting events, holidays and an affinity for gadgets.

“I love the passion at Perfect People. The drive to deliver a quality specialist service to both clients and candidates alike and to help grow businesses. Working in such a specialist and incestuous market allows us to build very strong client and candidate relationships. I firmly believe long term relationships can only be built upon excellent service, solving client challenges quickly and concisely and ultimately delivering quality talent – this culture is a constant within the business.”

Head of Infrastructure

Positivity, success, socialising, spending time with my family, entertaining my two young boys, the odd tipple, sunshine and Kylie Minogue

Failure, negativity, lateness and dieting

Family time and days out, road cycling, fishing, golf, weekends away and beating my youngest son at FIFA!

Chris is our Head of Infrastructure, he joined the world of recruitment in 1998 and has successfully recruited IT professionals across a vast portfolio of clients during this time.

“Prior to working with Perfect People I recruited across a broad range of IT technologies. Upon joining Perfect People, I quickly realised the difference in working for a specialist agency within a niche market and how little I knew before about the actual technologies I recruited candidates for. I love working within a market I fully understand and enjoy having credible conversations with candidates and clients alike. I seek long-term relationships by getting to know my clients’ business, markets & culture and advising on what they need to know”
