Amiqus Targets Recruitment Sector
The new partnership with Denholm marks the first move for Amiqus into the executive search and recruitment sector.
Amiqus Resolution, the compliance technology startup has partnered with Denholm Associates, the specialist marketing and C Suite recruitment agency to incorporate the Amiqus ID service, into its candidate offering.
The partnership is Amiqus’ first deal in the recruitment sector after the company signed deals with businesses in the legal, property and financial sectors.
Security and Veracity
The deal is the latest in a series of applications for Denholm, which believes technology can be a key differentiator in the industry. The company will use the Amiqus ID service to ensure the veracity and security of candidate information.
Both companies are headquartered in Leith, Edinburgh. Founded by CEO Callum Murray and a group of domain experts in 2015, Amiqus reached a revenue-generating position within its first twelve months. In 2017, the company doubled its client base, secured a new round of funding and increased its team size to 22.
Denholm was founded in 2002. The company’s client base includes Standard Life, VisitScotland, The R&A, Baxters and Skyscanner. Denholm opened a Glasgow office in 2017, announced a partnership with fellow headhunting firm McGregor Bond and launched Inside Out, a standalone employer brand agency.
Amiqus CEO and founder Callum Murray told DIGIT: “The partnership with Denholm is an important milestone and moves Amiqus ID into an entirely new sector.
“It’s also a great example of how the open and innovative culture in Leith is creating new opportunities in collaboration between new and seasoned companies.
“We’re delighted to be supporting Denholm around how they handle client vetting and, as Amiqus grows and scales up, we’re excited to be working with a business that shares our values and ambitions.”
Marisa Carroll, Denholm’s COO, said: “We have known Callum and the Amiqus team for a while now and have been continually impressed by both their people and their product.
“In our industry, the veracity and security of candidate information is paramount so Amiqus ID is a great fit for us and the the business.”
Nicki Denholm, CEO and founder of Denholm, agreed: “The use of technology and digital communications increasingly supports our ability to attract specialist marketing and commercial talent from across the UK and the rest of the world and Amiqus ID gives us an enhanced offering which is of particular importance as we approach a new GDPR reality.”
