Technology recruitment specialist SPG Resourcing is launching its first international operations in the US following the appointment of Ben Alston as principal consultant.

Ben brings a wealth of experience in the technology sector, having held senior positions in global recruitment companies. In recent years, he has developed expertise in cloud technologies and e-commerce.

Commenting on his appointment, Ben said: “SPG Resourcing is bringing something new to the market, and I’m confident that we can quickly make an impact in the US. In a fast-moving market, SPG has improved every element of candidate attraction, selection, and retention.

“To drive efficiency through the recruitment process, the team works as a talent partner, ensuring meticulous candidate screening, complete security clearance checks, and detailed assessments of web presence. The result is high-performing candidates that can deliver complex IT projects.”

The firm plans to open a US office next year to serve its clients. SPG Resourcing has experienced rapid growth and has a team of 18 professionals across Leeds and Newcastle. It achieved revenue of £3.85m last year and is on track to reach £7m in revenue for 2023.

SPG Resourcing ensures the continuous development of its workforce through technical training and certification.

Sam Hameed, co-founder and managing director of SPG Resourcing, concluded: “The US tech sector is worth nearly $2 trillion, and we believe that it holds a significant opportunity for SPG. Ben brings a wealth of experience and insight to the role as we launch into a new market for our business.”
