LondonRecruitment Services

London is a top global centre for business, and a city rich in culture for the people who live, work, and visit here.

Despite ongoing market uncertainties, the city enjoys a robust hiring outlook and ranks among the top cities for overseas workers.

Yet, London-based companies face persistent recruitment challenges, including a shortage of candidates with the exact skills they need and fierce competition for top candidates.

Since 1999, Hudson RPO has improved workforce management at large and small companies around the world. Through flexible partnerships, our talent specialists elevate employer brand awareness and hiring quality and speed, all while lowering recruitment costs.

Partner with us, and you’ll discover a suite of high-touch service offerings, including end-to-end RPO, project RPO, managed services, sourcing, employer branding, recruitment technology, and talent consultancy. We specialise in recruitment for the financial services, technology, FinTech, life sciences, FMCT, and manufacturing industries.

We’re committed to helping businesses drive growth in the Square Mile, Canary Wharf, Square Ditch, and across the greater London area.

What's your talent acquisition strategy?

Agile hiring is more important than ever across industries in London, including the financial sector, technology, and the life sciences. The best recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) partners understand the hiring market in your industry and the expectations of top candidates.

Hudson RPO offers a flexible suite of high-touch talent solutions that scale with your business requirements and a fast-changing global market. Our experienced consultants know how to position large and small companies in London as employers of choice among top talent in their industry.


As the onsite recruitment partner for a major London-based payment services company, Hudson RPO filled 94 per cent of open roles. We built a highly engaged pipeline of finance talent by establishing relationships with sought-after professionals at the local level and raising brand awareness. Hudson RPO oversees full-cycle recruitment for the financial services company. Our recruiting specialists also manage an agency for contractor services and provides contractor payroll services across the company’s operations in the UK, Ireland, and Romania.

London is the second most connected city for tech in the world after Silicon Valley. And the UK’s tech industry is growing 2.6 times faster than the country’s overall economy. To stay competitive, technology companies in London require strategic recruitment and long-term talent development. Hudson RPO’s hiring and workforce management strategies are agile rather than reactive by design. Whether on- or off-site, our talent specialists are responsive to changes in your business and the global marketplace—so you always have the workforce you need.
