So why be a Pirate?

When Steve Jobs and Bill Gates started on their journey to disrupt the tired tech world of their day, they quickly became known as the “Pirates of Silicon Valley”.

Two of the world’s most creative, admired and profitable brands relished their pirate image and owned one of the best networks of the day. Taking market share was almost too easy!

So who wouldn’t want to be a Pirate!

Today’s Pirates are serious recruiters, running professional businesses, with a common goal; to be the best they can.

As Steve Jobs famously put it – “Why join the navy if you can be a pirate?” 

Our band of pirates have grown into a fantastically diverse community of hardworking, honest and open people, with a common passion.

Working together we leverage buying power of almost £2bn, ensuring even the smallest member business can get the best supplier deals and professional services in the market.
