Notes to editors:

SThree, founded in 1986, is an international specialist staffing business, providing both permanent and contract staff to a diverse, client base of well over 6,000 clients. From its well-established position as a major player in the information and communications technology ('ICT') sector the Group has broadened the base of its operations by building fast-growing businesses serving the banking and finance, accountancy, human resources, engineering, energy and pharmaceuticals sectors.  

Following the establishment of its first business, Computer Futures, in 1986, the Group adopted a multi-brand strategy. SThree currently operates 12 separately managed brands, the four largest being Computer Futures, Huxley Associates, Progressive and Pathway, and has 33 offices in the UK and 21 overseas offices, 17 elsewhere in Europe, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany and Ireland. In 2006, the Group opened its first North American office, in New York, and recently opened offices in AustraliaHong Kong and Dubai.

SThree has a selective approach to clients and focuses on high margin opportunities, predominantly within the small to medium-sized enterprises ('SMEs') market and, from its inception, the Group has avoided the high volume, low margin business model in favour of a focus on high quality business.

SThree plc is quoted on the Official List of the UK Listing Authority under the ticker symbol STHR. SThree also has a US level one ADR facility, symbol SERTY.
