Alcuin Capital is pleased to announce its investment in Gravitas Recruitment Group.

Established in 2010, Gravitas is a leading specialist recruitment consultancy operating across the UK and Asia. The business is headquartered in the City of London, with further offices in Manchester, Leeds, Hong Kong and Singapore. The UK division staffs technology roles in growing niches, while the Asia division primarily staffs permanent roles in the insurance and banking sectors.


Jonathan Ellerbeck, Alex Naylor and Daniel Wallis, Managing Directors and co-founders of Gravitas, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Alcuin for the next chapter of Gravitas’ growth story. We founded Gravitas to fill a gap in the market for an agency offering the niche specialism of a boutique, combined with the professionalism of a larger resourcing firm. With Alcuin as our investment partner, complementing our outstanding people, robust business platform and compelling growth proposition, we expect to accelerate the next phase of our journey.”


Alcuin stood out because of their strong strategic insight, the personable approach of their high-quality team and their excellent track record in supporting businesses in their journey from good to great. We have no doubt that they will help us fulfil our vision of becoming the global market-leader in our specialist core markets.”


Nick Seaman, Partner at Alcuin Capital Partners, added: “We are delighted to announce our investment in Gravitas. We see Gravitas as a unique player in a highly attractive, fast-growing sector. We are excited to partner with Jonathan Ellerbeck, Daniel Wallis and their impressive management team to continue their strong track-record of profitable growth. Over the coming years, we intend to further support the company’s expansion, both in existing and new markets internationally whilst staying true to its values-based, meritocratic culture.”
