We will achieve our vision by:

  • Becoming an employer of choice
  • Being the best partner to clients and candidates
  • Rapidly developing our international business

We only enter a market where we believe we can be the very best within it. Each of our consultants focuses on a particular sub-sector, skill set or market so that they can fully understand and relate to the requirements of each client and candidate.

By bringing together two complementary recruitment sectors; engineering and technology, we draw on our long-established relationships with clients, candidates, educational institutions and trade bodies to source scarce skills from across the world and match them to the most appropriate roles, wherever they may be.

Our values underpin everything we do and how we want everyone we work with to feel. Our values stem from the behaviour of our employees and what principles they consider to be important to them.

We’re proud of what we do, and we want to continue to create a business we’re proud of. To do that, we need brilliant people, who love what they do and do what they love.

Our staff’s happiness and job satisfaction is a top priority for us. We are one big family at Gattaca, and strive to be an employer of choice for our current staff, and those who want to work for us in future.

We think we’re a great company to work for, and we ensure there’s always lots going on across the business to give our staff a good work-life balance, and something to look forwards to.

We love to celebrate people’s successes, and recognise those who do well here, and want to do well.

Take pride, be inspiring, and love your job at Gattaca.

We are made up of a group of companies, who each have their own specialist focus in the market.

    Cons

    None so far, as cliche as that may be.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus on growing the business and people.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Gattaca (Fort Worth, TX) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Recruiter reached out to me via Linkedin, we scheduled a time to speak, he told me about the company and the opportunity he had available, we went over what compensation I was targeting. He asked about my previous work experience and why I was looking to make a move I then went into detail about what I did.
