Our Team

Angus Gilmour


Our story starts with our founder, Angus Gilmour. Angus is an ex professional badminton player who previously represented Scotland internationally, competing in both European and World Championships. Upon retirement from sport, Angus faced the question that every Athlete inevitably faces, what next?

Equipped with valuable experiences gained from his sporting life and a degree from Loughborough University, he moved to London to embark on a new career in recruitment. Over the following 8 years, Angus helped to build an award-winning international recruitment company, including founding and leading an office in Glasgow which supports hundreds of engineers annually into new positions across Europe, and generates multi million in annual revenues.

In 2021 Angus decided to put his combined knowledge and passion for the worlds of sport and recruitment to use, with the goal of building and delivering a best-in-class service which connects Athletes with professional careers within the technology sector globally.
