Nine Twenty History


The Nine Twenty story began in 2004 as 9-20 Recruitment, a leading technology recruiter. We forged an impressive reputation as a leader in the sector, operating across the length and breadth of the country from our headquarters in the West End of Glasgow. Since then our reputation has grown, and so have we.

Now, it’s time for yet more growth; underpinned by a uniquely different vision and belief of what a recruitment consultancy should be – and do.

Our vision has been implemented by then Chief Executive Gordon Brown, who, in 2013 led the MBO which has driven Nine Twenty to become the business it is today. Our core values and DNA have helped underpin our unique approach to recruitment and we are rapidly becoming an employer of choice for our staff, and the partner of choice for our candidates and clients alike.

We take immense pride in our achievements, but it’s time for us to look forward; while still continuing to deliver every day the quality of service and results that our rapidly expanding client base has come to expect – and demand – from us.



Nine Twenty operates across the below key divisions, offering clients and candidates a level of honesty and commitment that, we believe, is without equal elsewhere.
