Alex Rosengren

Senior Business Manager - Security & Defence

Who I Am:

 My recruitment journey started at Thatcher MCS in February 2011, having gained degrees in Economics and Law, whilst managing the Coronation Tap (a self-proclaimed ‘world-famous’ cider pub in Bristol). I carved out a strong reputation for recruiting technical professionals into companies aligned with critical national security projects in the UK Public Sector.

 I led numerous, complex, retained assignments in the secure space, which I and the team at Thatcher MCS prided ourselves on delivering. I retain my strong network in the public sector, but after almost 7 years, an exciting fresh challenge arose.

 In late 2017, the growth of the innovative tech scene in the South West was too large to ignore, it was agreed that I’d shift stance and build upon the reputation Thatcher MCS has built in the South-West by setting up Applied Technologies, a company focused on connecting innovation and supporting the growth of firms based in the Silicon Gorge.

 I’m now leading the charge for Applied Technologies, whose mission is to be the go-to recruitment consultancy for those involved in further growing the tech scene in the South West, whilst championing diversity and inclusion.

Being Bristol born and bred, I’m extremely keen to promote this incredible city and the forward-thinking, disruptive tech firms, also calling Bristol their home.

 If you’d like to speak with me about the vacancies I’m currently recruiting for, or if you’re interested in an informal discussion about the marketplace (from a client or candidate perspective), the next step in your career or Applied Technologies in general, I’m always happy to help and can be reached on: 0117 314 2911 or via email.
