Capita Resourcing buys recruitment firm ThirtyThree

19 March 2015

Capita has acquired UK-based recruitment advertising company ThirtyThree, a move that, according to the consulting firm, will boost its existing resourcing and recruitment scheme. As part of the deal, ThirtyThree will be incorporated into Capita Resourcing, with the leadership remaining in place.

ThirtyThree is a British recruitment and advertising agency that provides employer branding, research, employee engagement and digital media services and helps organisations with resourcing and retention challenges, attracting new talent and deepening engagement with existing employees. The company has been established in 1998, is headquartered in London and has 104 employees working from its offices in Bristol and London.


For business process outsourcing and professional services firm Capita, the acquisition will strengthen its existing resourcing and recruitment proposition as well as add branding expertise, allowing it to offer a wider suite of services to new and current customers. These services include innovative graduate recruitment and emerging talent campaigns. As part of the deal, ThirtyThree will be integrated into Capita Resourcing, although preserving its own leadership team and locations in London and Bristol, and its more than 100 employees will join Capita’s global workforce of more than 62,000 employees.

Commenting on the acquisition, Nicola McQueen, Director of Capita Resourcing, says: “ThirtyThree is one of the UK’s foremost employer branding agencies, with a track record and client list that speaks for itself. In the current market, ensuring that your company has a strong employer brand is crucial to ensure that you can recruit and retain key talent. Working with ThirtyThree, we look forward to developing cutting-edge campaigns for our customers.”
