Our story

In 2008, our three founders Peter, Glenn and Mike created the X4 Group, a recruitment business united by a single purpose: to empower people to succeed. As the world of recruitment advanced, and our customers’ needs shifted, we launched X4 Technology, X4 Life Sciences, X4 Communications and X4 Alpha, with a vision to be world-renowned for delivering organisational solutions and consultancy services.

From our humble beginnings of offering recruitment services from a living room in London, we’re now multi-award-winning, and empower our clients through consultative solutions that support their organisational aims.

We’re growing fast, thinking big, and support people all over the world from our hubs in the United Kingdom, United States and Germany. The X4 Group has over 200 consultants around the world who come from diverse professional and personal backgrounds. We’re united by our mission, purpose, and commitment to each other and to our clients and candidates.

With the passion of our people, our on-going technology advancements, and broad ecosystem of partners, we develop and scale consultative solutions with lasting impact.
