04 October 2019

Woodrow Mercer has bolstered its Birmingham team by welcoming two senior technology recruiters as associate directors for a new division, Woodrow Mercer Embedded.

Nathan Upton and Samuel O’Leary, former management consultants at Progressive Recruitment, bring more than 20 years’ of industry knowledge and insights to Woodrow Mercer.

Woodrow Mercer, which also has offices in London, Leeds and Nottingham, has launched the new business unit Embedded to provide the embedded software contract market with a trusted supplier. The agency’s newest hires have more than eight years of specialised knowledge in the embedded systems and electronics market.

On his appointment, Nathan said: “We are bringing years of expertise in this niche market under an entirely new enterprise at Woodrow Mercer. Our experience in the recruitment sector has taught us that trusted business partners are widely sought after and we’re ready to provide an unrivalled service to Woodrow Mercer’s prospective customers.”

Samuel added: “It’s exciting to be part of the long-term vision shaping the future of the company’s technology offering. Our management experience will be vital in growing this new division and making the embedded systems and electronics market a successful one for the business.”

Woodrow Mercer, set up by managing director Dan Ostrowski, was founded in 2012 to develop an ethical recruitment agency that goes above and beyond for its staff, candidates and customers.

Dan said: “Our technology team is already market-leading but Nathan and Samuel will bring a further wealth of experience, knowledge and leadership to our business. Both are excellent recruiters and that’s why I’ve trusted them to lead our new Embedded division and make this another successful market for us.”
