​Operating out of Russell Taylor Groups’ Scientific team; Jacob Mason will be launching our latest service area in order to meet the growing demand of the Innovative Tech, Clean Tech and Startup sector.

Jacob, who started his own company at 18 using the latest in drone technology and computer design, is armed with an expansive knowledge of the technology sector; he is in a prime position to launch the Scientific Division into a new era of young, innovative companies.

A huge upsurge of tech start-ups from a low of 23,000 in 2020 to 46,000 in 2022 has brought a humongous demand for staff to the UK – with lots of the positions being highly skilled, permanent positions, the competition for talent is fierce. Russell Taylor Group is in a unique position with its national coverage to do in depth ‘homework’ on its clients to ensure only the best of the best candidates are sent over. Hiring someone for these highly skilled positions, everything from Optics Specialists to Battery Scientists, requires specific knowledge of the Innovative Technology sector. This is exactly what Jacob will bring to the Scientific Division.

Jacob said, “With unemployment only 3.9%, finding the “perfect” candidate isn’t good enough, employee retention is a key aspect of modern recruitment and my previous business experience will be the key to finding the right person for the job.”

He also said, “2023 is shaping up to be a great year for the Start-up Technology sector, big tech layoffs have created a pool of candidates and entrepreneurs ready to take a risk and put their trust into new companies. The market is generally bullish for climate, energy transition and cloud software – the exact industries I will be working within.”

Tom Hammond, manager of the Scientific Division, said; “Jacob is a great addition to our Scientific team and the opening of our Start-up / Innovation Technology Desk is a really positive step for us in terms of growth; it’s going to be really cool working with clients at the cutting edge of technology and being a part of their journey.”

Russell Taylor Groups’ Technical Innovation service will be officially open from June 2023 and we expect this to be a very popular service area.
