Data Centre Helps National Recruitment Group Sleep Soundly

Data Centre Helps National Recruitment Group Sleep Soundly

“With responsibility for over 7,000 UK workers and 300 staff, our IT is critical. Downtime could cost millions.” says Danny Parr, Business Launch and IT Director for the £140 million turnover group. “It’s such a relief migrating our computer systems to MIGSOLV. Now we can sleep at night knowing the physical protection we’re receiving is second to none.”


Established in 1996, the group has become a hugely successful name in UK recruitment. In 2016, The Recruit Ventures Group underwent a significant restructure to focus on establishing new joint ventures with budding recruitment entrepreneurs. It has now launched and supported over 43 partner recruitment businesses all over the UK.

“Our IT is critical to thousands of people. Our partners need to know they can get on with finding the right employees for their clients whilst we take care of the rest” adds Danny. “With GDPR looming, it was great to discover MIGSOLV’s world-class data centre right here on our doorstep. They made the move simple and are on hand 24/7 to help with anything our team needs.”

MIGSOLV own The Gatehouse in Norwich, the region’s only purpose-built data centre. It houses business’s computer servers and IT equipment, protecting data from threats including theft, extreme weather, power cuts and terrorism.

“The Recruit Venture Group is an amazing success,” says David Manning, MIGSOLV’s Managing Director. “It’s been fantastic helping Danny and his fellow directors relax knowing we’re keeping their IT secure. With GDPR legislation taking effect in May, we’re keen to be part of the solution for the East’s best and brightest businesses.”

Inside The Gatehouse data centre, The Recruit Venture Group’s IT equipment is now housed within air-conditioned and humidity control racks. Access is heavily guarded, whilst 8 days power generation and some of the fastest connectivity in the region, keep their IT online and accessible whatever happens.

“Like so many companies, The Recruit Venture Group are heavily dependent on IT despite it not being what they do” concludes David. “We’re always delighted when we can help businesses large and small to make their data security one less thing to worry about.”
