Since 1999, Jumar Recruitment has been the go-to agency for contract and permanent IT recruitment services. We help clients all across the UK find the best IT talent.

Jumar Recruitment works with you to understand your business challenges, before assembling the most cost-effective solution. This might be a traditional recruitment solution, such as permanent and contract resourcing – or perhaps an SLA-driven flexible managed service to meet peaks and troughs in demand.

Why our clients choose us as their IT recruitment partner

We’re not your standard IT recruitment agency

Your challenges are unique and we understand that. That’s why we’ve built up Jumar Recruitment to offer more flexible solutions alongside the traditional contract and permanent recruitment offerings.

No client is more important than you

Unlike other recruitment agencies, your project isn’t going to get put on the backburner because somebody “more important” comes along. You’ll never be assigned to a “B-team”; in fact, we don’t even have one!

Unparalleled expertise

Jumar Recruitment has been providing IT recruitment services since 1999. Our tactics are time-tested and our recruitment teams are vastly experienced.

Where does the name Jumar come from?

It’s one of the most common questions we get asked. What does Jumar mean? How did you get the name?

Wendy Merricks, CEO of Jumar, holding a framed jumar

A jumar is something you’ve probably seen before, but you just didn’t know what it was called. It’s a piece of mountaineering equipment used for ascending a rope while climbing.

The word ‘jumar’ has also spawned its own verb – and mountaineers and climbers are often described as ‘jumaring’ when they’re using one of these devices.

When we were choosing the name for the company, we wanted something intriguing – and so we chose Jumar. We’d like to think that it was chosen because it reflected our clients’ ability to move onwards and upwards – but actually, one of our Directors came across the term in a climbing magazine, and we just thought it was a great name. And it’s one we’ve all grown very fond of since.

Why Jumar?

Want to be treated like a human being, rather than a number? We're not like other agencies.


Our Values

At Jumar, we believe that a company's values shouldn't be just a list of platitudes. That's why we have thought long and hard about what we stand for, and what it means in reality.
