Curo was founded in 2006 by Karen Field and Mark Sewell, both ex-Directors of The Mandelbrot Set. Their Microsoft pedigree was built during their time at Mandelbrot, where they authored Advanced Visual Basic books for Microsoft Press as well as a wide range of consultancy assignments.
When Curo was just a concept, the founders worked with a business coach to confirm their personal beliefs and values so they could be embedded in the company.
We do not just pay lip service to this; we run our business according to these three values. They underpin every decision we make when working with clients, our talent community and suppliers alike.
Curo believes these principles and the dedication of our staff has helped us grow. Growth has required the addition of two more Directors, Di Mabe (Client Services Director) and Treesje Verlinden (Chief Operating Officer).
In 2008, we became a Microsoft Partner, and since 2014 Curo has been selected by Microsoft Consulting Services (MCS) in the UK as one of their ‘Smart Team Freelance Partners’. This means we provide MCS with the freelance resources required to support project delivery.
Our membership of the REC (Recruitment & Employment Confederation) is your assurance that we use best practice and abide by all UK recruitment laws.
Our expertise has been recognised as finalists in a number of awards, and proof of our pioneering spirit came in November 2017 when we became the first Microsoft Partner in Space.
We have ambitious plans for the future and new services and technologies are due to be rolled out in the next 3 years – benefiting both clients and our talent community.
