The Octagon Group
Octagon Group is a niche technology and engineering recruitment specialist based in the UK. We provide permanent, contract and customised recruitment solutions for the high technology and engineering sectors across the UK and Europe.
Part of Octagon Group’s promise is to give back to society to make the world a better place for us and for future generations. We do this in two ways.
1. Corporate Donations
Each year, we partner with a charity that falls in line with our goal for that year. At the end of each year we will donate as much as we possibly can to make a positive impact in our community. Working with Octagon Group as a client, as someone looking for a new job, or as an employee will allow us to make bigger donations and allow us to make a real difference. So, whether we’ve helped you find an exciting new job or a fantastic new hire for your team, you’ll be contributing to something bigger and sharing in our vision to make the world a better place. Below are some of the wonderful charities we’ve partnered with.
2019 – Alzheimer’s Society UK: > More on Alzheimer’s Society UK and the fantastic work that they do.

2. Community Projects
In addition to this, we work with local schools who have leavers choosing not to go on to further education. Octagon Group will host free in-house training sessions (either 1-1 or in small groups) to help build skills and confidence in:
• Resume writing
• Applying for jobs
• Interview techniques
These are essential skills every child needs and sadly not every child is lucky enough to have a mentor at home who can teach this.
