Volcanic continues awards trail with Northern Tech Awards 2018 shortlisting

Volcanic continues its awards trail with a shortlisting in the prestigious Northern Tech Awards 2018, taking its place among acknowledged entrepreneurs who grew rapidly through innovations in technology into major household names, including businesses like Skyscanner and LADbible.

Fastest Growing Company of the Year

Shortlisted in the Fastest Growing Company of the Year category, Volcanic’s success is due to its rapid global growth, its best in class technology that changed the way the global recruitment industry operates, and its easy-to-buy SaaS model that made leading technology available to recruiters of all sizes.

Founded seven years ago to celebrate the fastest growing tech companies in the North, the invitation-only GP Bullhound Northern Tech Awards reward innovative technology and rapid, sustained business growth within the digital economy.

Transformed the recruitment sector

Rob Wilde, CEO at Volcanic said: “We’re acknowledged as having transformed an industry. Recruiters can now operate more productively, and more profitably, competing on a level playing field with our ground-breaking technology, which we continually update as part of our service.

“From our small beginnings in Manchester eight years ago, our ambitious growth plans have led us to open - and continue to expand - offices in Malaysia, Australia and Mexico. 2017 was a year of record growth for Volcanic and by the end of 2018 we anticipate our team will have doubled again in size to reach around 150 staff across the world.

Global expansion

“At Volcanic, we're proud to bring new innovations to the recruitment market, and believe that our technology has contributed significantly to the UK recruitment market becoming the best in the world.


"A key part of our success has been to expand globally, with offices in Asia and North America. Driving our growth has been our selection to the prestigious London Stock Exchange ELITE programme and our participation in trade missions with government leaders and heads of industry to Malaysia and China. These have given us opportunity to meet with senior business decision makers, to attract international investment and to grow the Volcanic brand.

“Achieving recognition in the sought after Northern Tech Awards represents a growth milestone for us, and one I’m very proud to claim. We’re very much looking forward to continuing our ambitious expansion through 2018 and beyond.”
