Simpson Booth’s acquisition of Aqute

Specialist recruitment business and HR consultancy Simpson Booth has announced the completion of the acquisition of the business of Aqute Limited, a specialist IT and Technology recruitment company working in the UK and across Europe, with a particular focus on Spain.

Simpson Booth Ltd, founded in 2012 with headquarters in London and a presence in the north-east of Scotland, is continuing to expand its offering as part of a growth strategy centred on diversification. This latest acquisition further strengthens its capability in the technology sector.

Simpson Booth specialises in tailored outsourced HR and recruitment solutions but is underpinned by traditional executive search, contingent recruitment and other HR support services.

Managing Director Russell Stewart said: “We are delighted to have completed this acquisition and we are looking forward to growing our Technology division further on the back of this.”

Simpson Booth has achieved ISO9001:2015 and ISO14001:2015 accreditation for its executive search, permanent placement and temporary/contractor recruitment as well as the provision of complete HR and recruitment outsourcing solutions for a range of industries. Further information can be found at
