Access Group acquires Vincere and expands its international provision of recruitment operating systems

The Access Group today announced the acquisition of Vincere, a global provider of innovative technology to over 20,000 recruitment consultants around the world. The addition of Vincere’s recruitment operating system is the latest addition to Access Recruitment’s unique breadth of industry-leading software and significantly expands their international reach.

The Access portfolio has been developed and expanded over time, with a successful track record of acquisitions including several key players within the recruitment space including Safe Computing, Microdec, Volcanic and First Choice Software. Access Recruitment, a division of The Access Group, supports agencies from start-ups to scale-ups, through to large enterprise players with their technology that spans the entire front to back-office ecosystem. The acquisition of Vincere is poised to expand their reach across the UK and Europe and extend their footprint in the Asia Pacific region, established with their Volcanic recruitment website platform.

Paul Vogel, managing director of Access Recruitment commented: “Vincere has built an impressive business serving customers across the globe with their intuitive and pioneering recruitment software. We are excited to welcome Vincere to Access and we look forward to working collaboratively to deliver the best customer outcomes as we accelerate our vision to become the #1 provider of recruitment technology in the world. The experienced talent and service capabilities within Vincere will certainly complement our existing wealth of recruitment experience in the Access team”.

Bernie Schiemer, Founder and CEO of Vincere said: “We have spoken openly about our ambitions for Vincere to become the clear leader globally in our space. To make that a reality and more than just hot air, we needed to partner with a heavyweight who shares our vision of providing a single operating system for the front, middle and back office of recruitment firms, on a global scale. Access Recruitment’s heritage in the temp space, plus their strength in key areas such as payroll and compliance, made them the natural choice and puts our current momentum on steroids.

This acquisition puts the mighty Access machine behind us and turns Vincere into an unstoppable force. There are now no limits on how far we can take the platform and the experience we can provide to our customers. The entire Vincere team here is thrilled to join the Access Group.”

Schiemer added, “At Vincere our mission has always been to help recruiters win. That will never change. Our customers can expect the same platform, the same people, the same vision. But with way more firepower.”

Citizens M&A Advisory served as the exclusive financial advisor to Vincere.
