What we do

Simplifying Interim & Project Staffing Since 2020


Understanding Solutions is a hybrid of a tech consultancy and recruitment company – providing you the best of both worlds, without the drawbacks of either. We're committed to elevating contract recruitment to an unparalleled level of excellence, setting a new standard in the industry.


At our core, we're all about making things better – especially when it comes to finding the right people for interim and project needs. Our aim is simple: we want to save our clients time and money while they achieve their business goals hassle-free.

What sets us apart?

With a track record that speaks volumes, we really get what challenges our clients face. That's why we craft tailored, budget-friendly solutions that cut out the fluff and unnecessary costs.


But here's the kicker – we're not the new kids on the block. We're proudly backed by the Understanding Recruitment Group, a name you might already know and trust. So, when you partner with us, you're teaming up with experience and a reputation for excellence.

Our mission?


Well, it's pretty straightforward. We're out to shake up how interim and project resources are usually handled across the board. We've got a real passion for coming up with creative fixes and top-notch services for our clients. When you team up with us, you're collaborating with experts who know their stuff and can tackle your resource issues like pros.

Our team grows!


In 2023, we took a bold step by merging our contracts recruitment team with the Understanding Solutions division. This not only supercharged our client service, but also expanded our consultant team to more than 10 strong. In the same year we also made the key hire of our Client Engagement Manager. Our Head of Solutions. Tom Rankin, was also promoted to Associate Director.
