Hydrogen’s shareholders include major institutions, retail broker accounts, individuals and employees, as well as original founders of the business.

Why are we different?

We believe we work in a different way from others in the recruitment sector. Working from offices across four continents, we operate as one business, with one brand, joining up our regions and practices and sharing candidate and client information through a central IT hub.

Whilst many specialist recruiters are location focused, we believe the best way to support our clients and candidates is to base our offering around our global practices.

It is through our leading-edge technology and joined-up processes within these practices that our consultants are able to operate globally, finding the right candidates for specialist roles, regardless of location.
