The UK division of Aquent, one of the largest global staffing providers globally, with over 35 years of experience supporting the digital, technology, marketing, and creative industries, has become an official partner of Get-Optimal.

The innovative London recruitment agency for creative, digital, and marketing roles has partnered with Get-Optimal, the UK-based global technology company and diversity and inclusion provider, to reduce bias in their Job Ads – and send out a clear message to candidates and clients alike about Aquent’s commitment to creating inclusive and diverse workforces where everyone is welcome.

Aquent began as an idea shared by three friends at Harvard University back in 1985. Originally going by MacTemps, the recruitment company quickly expanded across the US before opening its first international office in the UK in 1991. This was followed by offices in France, Australia, Canada, Japan, The Netherlands, and Germany. And, in 1999, MacTemps became the Aquent we know and love today.

Aliza Sweiry, Managing Director of Aquent UK, said: “Becoming a partner of Get-Optimal continues our investment into diversity, equity and inclusion. As a company committed to building inclusive, engaged workplaces that result in empowered employees who reflect a wide range of approaches and perspectives, we know that DEI begins with Job Ads. We are excited to have Get-Optimal optimise our Job Ads for DEI and SEO to ensure our recruitment communications reflect our values.”

CEO of Get-Optimal, Daniel Fellows, said: “We are delighted to announce Aquent as a partner. By asking Get-Optimal to make their Job Ads more inclusive and searchable, Aquent is adapting their DE&I efforts to drive real and lasting change, and we are excited to be on the journey with them.”
