About Applica

We aspire to be the preferred recruitment partner for an engaged group of clients and candidates. We are people-centric, diligent, agile, safe and innovative. In practice this means that we understand good people are essential to what we do, and we are flexible enough to always challenge the status quo and suggest new ways of working. We would never operate in a way that would cause unnecessary commercial or operational risk to our people and we pride ourselves on the completion of our work in a thorough manner. 

Our operations are strategically structured to align with our clients, meaning that we have businesses registered in both Houston and Stavanger to support the large energy markets of North America and Norway. Our head office is based in Manchester which serves as a global recruitment hub but also services the UK market. We also have solutions in place for the majority of European and Asia countries.
