It has taken Ben and Alan just two years to go from a dynamic new force to an award-winning recruitment agency, year-on-year, but their professional relationship has spanned over a decade. Both qualified Software Engineers, their success started in 2015 when they set up their own digital agency from Ben’s apartment.

Their financial success speaks for itself as they have reported growth throughout the year despite the hardships that COVID-19 placed on the industry. This includes increased turnover, onboarding of new clients and customers, increased website and social media following and engagement, and even embarking on new ventures in the shape of the Muovo Job Board & Employer Directory Portal.

With Ben as Technical Director and Alan as Creative & Marketing Director, they understood the need for adaptation and digitisation of the recruitment industry, particularly because of the new challenges presented as a result of the pandemic. They continued to enhance Broadwing and Rocksteady but also identified the needs in the market which would go on to be addressed by Muovo and HR Talks.

With people and community always at the heart of their endeavours, Ben and Alan built systems to reach job seekers and employers beyond the Maltese shores through the establishment of a strong international network. Their services offer companies and candidates alike a number of ground-breaking and vital services including Employer Branding & Marketing, HR Consultation, Payroll Services, Online Training Courses and even Relocation Packages.

They have and continue to achieve this through cutting-edge technology and an approach which embraces innovation that features across all their work and platforms. Both co-founders continuously strive to provide expert-driven service that would hold its own against a nationally saturated market, being the leader in Malta offering complete recruitment solutions and a favourite among job seekers, through the constant drive for excellence.

Ben and Alan demonstrate leadership and personal integrity in every aspect of their lives which clearly reflects in the work they produce and their relationships with clients and employees alike.
