Distinct, the recruitment agency headquartered in Nottingham, has opened its first office in London.

The new base is in Pancras Square and sees the agency open a second office.

Starting as a team of five, the agency has grown its workforce to over 50 people in eight years, supporting candidates and clients across the UK and North America.

James Calder, chief executive officer and co-founder, said: “We’re thrilled to defy market norms and spearhead our company’s expansion. The launch of our London office in Kings Cross perfectly aligns with our vision for growth across the UK and North America.”

“The physical expansion into London represents a significant milestone for Distinct, amplifying the agency’s capacity to meet the diverse needs of clients and candidates in the region.

Alex Alcock, head of the accountancy practice division focused on London and the surrounding areas, added: “Establishing a physical presence in London was a natural progression for us. This move strengthens connections with accounting professionals and firms, enabling tailored recruitment solutions and elevating our service delivery.”

Calder said: “This is an incredibly exciting time at Distinct. From the outset, our vision has been to create an agency that provides regional, national and international opportunities. With the imminent launch of our Boston MA office, we are on the verge of realising that vision.”
