In 2020 we faced a once in a century event that provided a series of unprecedented tests. SThree not only dealt with those challenges but is emerging as a stronger business. 

This year’s report shows that our focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and flexible working delivered a financial performance ahead of where we reset our expectations when COVID-19 first hit. Group net fees in the year were down only 8%. 

Despite all the challenges this year, it is evident from our performance that we have the right strategy, are in the right markets, and our teams are executing well. 

Mark Dorman, Chief Executive Officer at SThree, said: “Our purpose of ‘bringing skilled people together to build the future’ feels even more appropriate today. We source, nurture, and place STEM talent with clients who are solving complex world challenges. 

As we continue to head into the Fourth Industrial Revolution, accelerated by the current health crisis, the secular trends of STEM and flexible working will only become more powerful over the next year.
