About The Animo Group

Welcome to The Animo Group – We’re not your average recruiters.

Here at The Animo Group, we know that finding the right fit goes beyond just matching skills on paper.

What’s The Animo Way?

  • Partnerships, not transactions: We believe in building real connections with you, understanding your company’s DNA, and becoming an extension of your team. Think of us as your secret weapon, not just another vendor.
  • Bespoke recruitment campaigns: No cookie-cutter solutions here. We tailor every search to your unique needs, goals, and company culture. Because let’s face it, your dream candidate isn’t hiding in a generic job posting.
  • People-first mentality: It’s all about the humans! We focus on finding the perfect fit for both you and the candidate, creating win-win situations that last.

We’d love to hear your story and show you how Animo can help you build your team.

We also speak your language (not just corporate jargon!), build dedicated talent pools, and help you elevate your employer brand. Because let’s be honest, attracting top talent is all about making a good first impression.

So, whether you’re a start-up ready to shake up the world, or a scaling business on the brink of something big, let us show you the true potential of The Animo Way!

We champion DE&I in the sectors we work in by acknowledging and addressing the real issues, while amplifying others’ voices.

We’re motivated by what we can give back to the community rather than what’s in for us. We build each other up, not only through our charity work but also in the way we share our skills and develop our partners.
