Recapping a big week at Arctic Shores

Every week’s a busy week here at Arctic Shores. But we’ve had a hat-trick of huge results in recent days, and now we’re taking the opportunity to share them all (again)!

Deloitte delight

Starting at the top, we’re proud to have placed 45th in Deloitte’s annual UK Technology Fast 50 list. Being recognised as one of the country’s fastest-growing tech companies is great and all, but, for us, the list means more. It’s the latest confirmation of the meaningful impact we’re having for customers – not just in the UK, but all over the world. 

2021 promises to be another year of discovery, as we push hiring on to new frontiers. We’re thankful to Deloitte for putting the wind in our sails.

Joining the club

We love a club at Arctic Shores. Reading, running, yoga, Dungeons & Dragons… even in lockdown, we’ve found community. 

But this week, the whole company joined a new one: SVC2UK’s Scale Up Club. With previous alumni like Skyscanner and Transferwise, it’s a big milestone for us. And now, we can’t wait to come together with this year’s cohort to discuss all things scale up, and learn a thing or ten. Every day’s a school day, as they say.

It takes two (million)

Those first two milestones speak to our strong growth recently (and long may that continue). But success for us is about more than the balance sheet numbers. It’s about giving real people a better hiring experience – and a fairer shot at fulfilling their potential. 

That’s why we were overflowing with pride this week, when we processed our two-millionth candidate! What’s more, it’s only been ten months since we hit one million. Doubling up in a lockdown is a big deal for us, and we couldn’t have done it without the continued faith of all our customers, or the hard work of our team.

Here’s to millions more.

“Once in a while, and out of the blue, you experience a singularly extraordinary week in the life of your company. And on this occasion, it’s in the backdrop of a singularly extraordinary year!,” says our CTO and co-founder, Safe Hammad.

“Needless to say, hitting the significant milestone of two million candidates, and gaining independent recognition both in Deloitte’s UK Fast 50 and SVC2UK’s Scale Up Club, has given us a huge boost, and our spirits have been truly lifted as we head into the dark winter months.

I’m incredibly proud of the achievements we’ve celebrated over the past week. But I also couldn’t be prouder of the sense of camaraderie and community that has grown in the team over time, and the company values we continue to hold dear. This has been key to our success.”
