It’s been a busy couple of months here at Eligo towers in Wimbledon for our specialist recruiters following the build up to Christmas and the surge in the job market in the New Year. As well as providing great advice on your career, presenting at leading industry events, and fulfilling your recruitment needs, our team of top recruiters have carried on redefining recruitment the Eligo way.
Like your parent’s Christmas newsletter proudly sharing your achievements with family and friends, we decided it was time to fill you in with what’s been going on here at Eligo over the last couple of months and share some of our family photos whilst we’re at it. It’s been a great couple of months for our consultants, candidates, and clients, and we fully look forward to sharing many more like it.
Christmas celebrations in the Eligloo
After an excellent year for our specialist recruiters and in full festive swing, we celebrated our Christmas party in the best Eligo way possible. Starting the morning off with a luxurious breakfast at local Wimbledon department store and office favourite, Elys, we returned to the office to complete the ritual Secret Santa. Just like kids at Christmas, our specialist recruiters struggled with not only the wait but concept of Secret Santa, with rumours abound swaps had taken place and certain givers and recipients becoming open knowledge. In the end, there were more than a few surprises, with some team members very happy with their extremely well thought out presents, expertly delivered by Eligo elf and Marketing Manager Vicky.
Who wouldn’t want a Bieber calendar and Frozen sing-a-long CD for Christmas? Afterwards we headed to our meal at a local restaurant where we had an outdoor winter chalet re-dubbed the eligloo. With the annual sector sing-off, and games abound, much fun and festivities were had by all. It was a great send off to another successful year for our top recruiters at Eligo.
Just as winter got into full flow in Wimbledon our top recruiters, in reward for an excellent and successful quarter, were packing their bags for the sunny sights of Dubai! At Eligo we love to reward our top recruiters, with the team visiting destinations such as Morocco, Croatia, and Las Vegas, with a trip to Miami where we expect to be on the beach till the break of dawn… on the horizon.
The trip was a great way to celebrate our success, for team members to bond, and of course to shop – with some of the world’s largest malls, there’s always plenty Dubai.

Not only are we a team of leading specialist recruiters, but we have a few amongst us that fancy themselves as the next Messi, Ronaldo, and Heskey. We also have the odd master tactician, with Eligo Director John Doherty moonlighting as illustrious managerial messiah Jose Doherty, taking charge of a local U7’s football team, The Wizards.
Continuing out passion for getting involved with the local community and working with causes close to the heart of it, we decided to sponsor the Wizards in their endeavours for the current and forthcoming seasons. Don’t they look great emblazoned in the Eligo pink?
We wish both Jose and the Wizards the best of luck and every success this season!
Continuing the football theme, we are also proud to sponsor Wingate and Finchley FC who play in Premier Division of the Isthmian league. Our resident Perl Specialist Recruiter Rick Deller is a big fan, and previously spent time working as Strategic Director and Disability Project Manager for the club.
We’ve been very fortunate to welcome a number of talented specialist recruiters to the Eligo team over the last few months, in particular Nadeem Zaidi and Tony White who join to head up Eligo Mobile and Digital, and Eligo Energy respectively.
You can read about Tony, who will be leading Eligo Energy recruitment into the Renewable Energy market in particular with specialist expertise in the German and Dutch speaking markets, here.
It’s an exciting time here at Eligo, and we’re very happy to work with such talented individuals who we are sure will only continue to help Eligo grow and lead the way as London’s best recruitment agency. Welcome to the team Nadeem and Tony!
Happy Birthday to Eligo
We’ve made our wishes, blown out the candles, and thanked the queen for her letter. Yes, Eligo turned 14 years old at the end of last month! Started in 2001 with a focus on creating a company that would not compromise on quality and integrity all whilst nurturing a personal and fun culture, Eligo is still continuing to redefine recruitment. As evidenced above, we believe we have continued to deliver on those initial goals, hiring the best specialist recruitment talent whilst enjoying every day of work along the way. Look how young they looked back then – haven’t changed a bit!
Here’s to another great year and the consultants, clients, and candidates that we work with along the way!
We’re proud of our top recruiters and the culture and ethos displayed throughout our team. If you are a driven achiever, think you have what it takes to be one of our top recruiters, and are already picturing yourself on the flight to Miami, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us now.
