Funded training, low cost recruitment and free elearning.

Be the difference.


We don't just want to make a difference.

We believe in maximising the support that employers receive within the recruitment, learning and development industry, challenging the norm to positively impact the futures of their people and business.


ecognito is a single source for low cost recruitment, funded training and development, offering access to skills funding, complementary elearning, work-based qualifications and local talent.

ecognito can support your business to eliminate your employers national insurance contributions for any individual that is between the ages of 16-24, if they are enrolled onto a funded qualification.

We want to ensure that employers maximise the value they receive from their investment in their people.

With over 20 years supporting businesses with people development, our experience has led us to developing this unique solution as we believe that employers and their people should be able to access a better service and receive additional support. We help employers to reduce their recruitment costs and prepare them for the changes in the learning and development world, whilst helping them to develop a longer term strategy to develop and retain the key talent that is critical to the success of their business.


Attract. Engage. Develop. Retain.

ecognito delivers an integrated solution that combines effective components that work together to support your business to maximise its effectiveness in attracting, engaging, developing and retaining their people.

ecognito reduces your financial risk, with limited fees only applicable if value is created.

We will support you to attract experienced, quality personnel as well as young talent through Apprenticeships for all your vacancies across your business.

Our low cost recruitment model was born out of a need to create for our clients, a cost effective offering to recruit and attract talented people as the traditional routes were either a costly process or didn’t really seem to attract the right people.  We have successfully extended our low cost recruitment solution to help our clients attract good people for all of their live vacancies.

We can introduce you to work-ready, experienced candidates for all roles across your business for a contribution of just 9% of an individuals annual salary payable if they are successful in achieving employment, managing all advertising and screening on your behalf with no up front fees.

If you are looking for young apprentices, then we can offer you an Apprentice recruitment solution at no cost and provide a funded training and career development journey to help them grow with your business.
