SPG Resourcing has appointed Jack Blackburn as a principal talent partner to lead the development of the company’s software development division.

Jack brings a wealth of experience helping companies find the software development talent they need to grow their business. He has previously worked in senior roles in Boston in the US and Newcastle.

Commenting on his new role, Jack Blackburn, said: “SPG Resourcing has a great culture and service offering that is driving rapid growth. It’s fantastic to join the team and lead the expansion of its software development resourcing. The industry is rapidly evolving, and it’s essential that companies seek expert support when finding the best talent for their teams. I believe that SPG’s approach brings a level of rigour that sets it apart in the industry.”

The technology recruitment firm recently celebrated its second anniversary by announcing it will see revenue hit £7m this year and rise to £25m by 2025 and plans to build on its current bases of Leeds and Newcastle with offices in London and the USA.

SPG Resourcing is part of the Solution Performance Group, which helps companies achieve their digital transformation goals by providing technology consultancy, software development and talent recruitment services.

It provides interim and permanent technology resources to many businesses, from insurance and financial services to health, housing and large FTSE businesses.

Sam Hameed, co-founder and managing director of SPG Resourcing, said: “Our expansion plans rely on building a culture that delivers for our colleagues and customers. Jack is a great addition to our team and underlines our commitment to attracting the best talent in our industry.”
