Our London executive search and recruitment office serves clients and candidates in Reading, Theale, Bracknell and right across Berkshire.
Often referred to as the commercial capital of the Thames Valley, Reading is a thriving business hub, consistently featuring in the Cities Outlook top-3 UK locations for economic contribution per worker. And in 2019, a new report by Irwin Mitchell named Reading as the ‘top powerhouse city in the UK’ – thanks to recent growth outstripping all other regions.
Although Reading is located within the London commuter belt, the town is in fact a net ‘importer’ of talent - generally highly skilled professionals, many of whom work in the technology sector. In fact, Reading’s economy has grown in parallel with the UK tech industry, and it was once home to digital pioneers like ICL and US giant DEC.
The descendants of these brands, Fujitsu and Hewlett-Packard, maintain operations in the area, and they’ve been joined by other global tech firms like Microsoft and Oracle. Yet Reading isn’t just about tech - financial services, pharmaceuticals and professional services are also major players here.
Stone Executive headhunters work closely with employers and candidates across all commercial sectors and functional practices, helping employers in and around Reading to recruit talented senior managers and high-profile executives.
