We Make a Difference

Lithium3 recruit top tier permanent & contract professionals in Data, IT & Business Transformation. We connect quality people in a respectful & smooth way to help organisations transform through technology enablement.



Our Difference

Recruitment should be simple. We connect great people to great companies. We stand out through how we make our clients and candidates FEEL through our knowledgeable, personal and professional approach.

Our Core Values

  • We are Positive - Lithium3 make it happen.

  • We Collaborate - Lithium3 listen, learn and communicate clearly.

  • We are Trustworthy - Lithium3 do the right thing.

  • We Keep it Simple - Lithium3 go out of our way in the pursuit of service excellence, making it easy to work with us.

Our Key Strengths

  • We bring 32 years experience with strong relationships/networks.

  • We understand people, businesses, requirements and compliance.

  • We only deliver quality and relevant candidates.

  • We work well as a team.

  • We 'get it'.



Lithium3 offer a quality led Data, IT and Business Transformation recruitment service to boutique consultancies, SME's and large clients in multiple sectors. We add value by being versatile in recruiting a range of the more niche Data requirements within Data Engineering/Analysis/Architecture/Leadership. This leads to expanding our delivery to Business Analysis (technical and process), Project/Programme Management (Technical and Change), ERP, CRM and Cloud Infrastructure. We have strong understanding of legacy, current and emerging technologies (Cloud, AI, IoT, Machine Learning, RPA) and methodologies (Agile/DevOps). We find this adds value to identify, engage and deliver key resources efficiently and professionally.


We’re not in the business of wasting our time or yours, so we ensure we are clear from the start – we work together as partners, and nothing else. We qualify needs in a detailed manner and commit to specific timelines with our clients’ and candidates’ prior agreement, so the recruitment process is professionally run in the most efficient manner.

  • Contract

    Traditional time and materials contract placements.


    We deliver inside and outside IR35 contractors across the UK for project and programme based requirements.


    See our compliance page

  • Statement of Work (SOW)

    Milestone/deliverable SOW contract for clear self-contained outcome based requirements. Lithium3 partner with specialist contractor squads who assist with project scoping and act as our delivery function. We use the latest software to manage the SOW delivery lifecycle, providing governance 

    through to completion. We also partner with boutique consultancies by providing SOW contractors for niche resources they can't find themselves. This helps the consultancy both deliver and expand their end-client services while offering our contractors a broader range of projects.  

  • Permanent

    We work on mid-high level permanent roles either exclusively or on a retained basis. To ensure high touch service levels we meet our clients and candidates (Face to Face or virtually) to understand company, culture, process and key requirements.
