We help global technology companies source the best talent from around the world

About us

Recruiting since 2007, Widen the Net has quickly established a reputation as a quality provider of domestic and international headhunting services within the IT sector. Our two strategically placed offices in London and Brisbane work together to locate and relocate highly skilled individuals for our clients across the globe.

The demand for IT niche specialists continues to rise. Our dedicated recruitment consultants draw on their extensive knowledge and experience to deliver exceptional contract and permanent candidates from within our global network, which spans EMEA, APAC, and North America. As we continue to expand in profitability, territory, and technologies, our core values of honesty, ethics, and efficiency remain steadfast.


Widen the Net has an impressive track record of successful recruiting processes that fulfil complex requirements for software vendors, consultancies, and system integrators. With no outside debt or association with a parent group, we are not pressured into meeting investor targets and are therefore free to facilitate healthy long-term business relationships with valued clients and candidates.

As the company name suggests, Widen the Net is able to broaden the pool of talented candidates for positions within the IT sector by sourcing individuals globally, and looks forward to welcoming both global giants and exciting young start-ups into our network of satisfied clients.

New technologies demand highly specialised skills, experience, and accreditation, the combination of which may prove difficult to source in a local area.

Broadening a candidate search to other geographical regions can help. Widen the Net relocates IT specialists from the United States, across Europe and the Middle East, and within the Asia-Pacific region. After vetting and qualifying CV submissions, Widen the Net conducts face-to-face interviews.

If shortlisted we facilitate video conference interviews in Australia and the United Kingdom with HR and Line Managers.
Large technology consultancies and mining/engineering firms in particular value this efficient and comprehensive recruitment process.

We recognise that for our global candidates, an overseas relocation requires a great deal of time, effort, and resources, which is why Widen the Net assists with relocation at every stage of the process.
