Our Story

Knowing that many companies back in the UK are facing skills-shortage issues and experiencing poor outsourcing we launched Cloud Employee.

Unable to find IT staff within budget and having had poor experiences with foreign agencies and freelancers, we set up Philippines offices to support our own UK tech businesses. Speaking with contacts back in the UK we realised many businesses were facing the same issues and created Cloud Employee

Cloud Employee co-founders Nick Hargreaves and Seb Hall both originally ventured to the Philippines to set up operations for their own respective tech businesses several years ago.

Both had struggled to hire IT staff in the UK within budget and been dissatisfied with remote staffing agencies in both Eastern Europe and India. Foreign developers working via freelancer websites had also proven unreliable. Both individually took the plunge and moved to the Philippines to build their own direct operations.

The Philippines stood out as the ideal place, benefiting from a Western culture, high proficiency with the English language, and a US syllabus university system that graduates over 130,000 tech and engineering students a year compared to just 25,000 in the UK.

Knowing other companies back in the UK were facing similar skills-shortage issues as well as also having had poor experiences outsourcing, the pair joined forces to leverage their existing infrastructure and extensive Philippines business knowledge to launch Cloud Employee.

Cloud Employee was set up to disrupt and go above and beyond any other provider in the IT outsourcing industry. We act as a long-term strategic partner for clients and help them grow their business working as an extension of their in-house teams. Our model is Western managed tailored candidate recruitment as well as managing the ongoing physical operations reducing clients' risk and financial outlay.
