Originally playing in the same football team, Greg Holden and Leigh Jones became friends. An opportunity arose for them to work together in recruitment and soon they realised that they shared a common belief that “candidates today become your clients of the future and likewise clients become your candidates.” This simple philosophy was the foundation upon which Holden Jones was formed at our Windsor office in 1995. Situated in Park Street, overlooking Windsor Castle proved to be an ideal setting to benefit from the expanding technology and dot com businesses in the UKs Silicon Valley. In 2000 we opened our Basingstoke location expanding our reach along the M4 and Hampshire. We withstood the downturn of 2002, by opening our third office in London, SW19 to also cover the Surrey area. Our clientele by now included a number of household organisations and Holden Jones entered a new phase of larger recruitment campaigns, managing several in house assignments including Shared Service Centre set–ups and entire department relocations. Having managed the London office since its inception, Richard Perrott moved to heading up the already established Public Practice Specialist division in 2009, with representation across each office. The London office then migrated from its Wimbledon base into Waterloo for increased accessibility and focus on the Central London market.
