The Association of Technology Staffing Companies (ATSCo) was formed in 1999 to provide a strong and united voice creating a positive appreciation of the role, responsibilities and value of the IT, Telecommunications and Professional level Engineering Recruitment Industry.


The UK marketplace has an annual turnover of over £4 billion, with around 80,000 flexible workers. Eight out of ten contractors in the Technology sector supply their services to end-users and vendors via a staffing organisation and five of these eight through an ATSCo member.


ATSCo was formed with 14 founder members and in 2008 had around 60, ranging from the quality start-up businesses to the huge PLCs, each bringing an individual corporate style plus a shared vision for an industry respected for its quality, service and results.
