Our differentiators divide us from the rest!

Our Investor

We have an investor, whose dislike of traditional recruitment consultancies and their methods from his past experiences as a Digital CEO are what inspired the creation of Prism Digital.

We are focused on being a different type of consultancy, building long lasting relationships with both candidates and clients not simply 'blanket bombing' CVs.

Yonder & Beyond

Prism is part of Yonder & Beyond, a mobile and technology incubator for startups. We are Yonder & Beyond’s in-house recruitment arm helping their startups grow.


In House Development

Within our technology hub Prism’s consultants sit alongside and share knowledge and resources with non-sales teams comprising of developers, designers and technology orientated staff.

This allows us to validate our candidates and have a genuine knowledge and interest in all things to do with technology and mobile.

Community Involvement

We are very active in the tech community, we co-organise two monthly DevOps meetups and we also run an annual conference in partnership with Microsoft.

These attract tech professionals from across the country which means we have access to a large network of strong, passionate engineers.

Story behind Prism Digital

Prism was founded in late 2012 by three guys who met accidentally! After getting to know each other we formed an idea – to create a recruitment consultancy that was genuinely different from the rest. We understand that the world of recruitment has a terrible reputation. Our vision is to approach the market with a completely new mindset.

We would rather retain clients and drive quality than constantly add new clients. This model is effective at all levels - from startups to FTSE100 businesses.

Our 'startup' mentality means that we are hungry and driven, but also focused on building long lasting relationships with clients. Let's grow our businesses together!

I started as a resourcer for the company, then became a 360 consultant and I’m now the Office Manager. Outside of work I like to socialise with friends over drinks and I also enjoy travelling (I squeezed in 7 holidays in 2016). If you manage to catch me in London, you’ll probably find me in a bar in Shoreditch or Clapham!

Our Values

Mission Statement

Prism Digital are a recruitment consultancy specialising in technology. We want to foster our clients’ growth by connecting them with the best IT talent. We focus on building real relationships with our clients and candidates, to ensure that business is transparent and honest, and that we can use our intimate knowledge of the technology community to screen the best candidates. With this in mind, it is our mission to connect smart people with outstanding clients.


We share everything we can with our employees. We are open and honest about our business and our hiring strategies. Our clients and candidates are kept in the loop at all stages of the process, and we make sure to be prompt and honest with them.


We emphasise building relationships, both internally and externally. From within the company to our clients and candidates, we are focussed on building long-lasting relationships with those we work with, and beyond into the wider technology community. A lot of this comes from engaging with London’s technology communities, whether by attending other meetups or organising our own.

Team Work

Each consultant has their own independent patch that they work, but this does not mean that they’re left to themselves. With a strong emphasis on mentoring and leadership, our more senior consultants take on juniors to train and support. This builds a strong relationship in the company, from directors down to junior consultants, and between each member.


We are genuinely interested in the technologies that we recruit for. By organising and attending meetups we get to meet people who are as interested, and learn more about our specialisms. This passion means that we put our all effort into our work.


We embrace quirkiness. From new marketing campaigns to different ways at approaching recruitment, we welcome new ideas from all members of the team, however crazy! From company karaoke nights to trips to Ibiza, we like to embrace the mantra ‘work hard, play hard’. This even extends to our clients, who we like to bring out on nights out. As one of our most trusted clients once said, ‘Prism treat me like a mate, not a margin.’
