Our story

Mercator started life in 2006 as an IT recruitment firm, specialising in the contract market space. We started to provide larger teams to our clients and in 2014 we began our journey with various public sector bodies – delivering end-to-end projects, with a focus on digital transformation.

Since 2018 we have worked with clients on a consultative basis and have left our recruitment roots behind – although the skills which allowed our early development then, enable us to scale our technical teams rapidly today. We’re now an award-winning digital consultancy with over 400 people in offices across the UK, US, Singapore, and Paris. Together, we deliver digital solutions to millions of customers worldwide.

Our culture

We’re very proud of our culture at Mercator Digital – which has nurtured a lively, confident, inclusive and forward-thinking team. Our people understand they are our most crucial asset, and this is evident in their annual survey responses, which contributed to our incredible 4th place ranking on the Best Places to Work UK™ list. We have also been accredited with being a Best Place to Work in Tech as well as a Best Place to Work for Wellbeing.

As we continue to expand, it’s hugely important to us that we retain our culture. That’s why we have an annual survey – for continuous feedback; an open-door policy – for constant communication; social events throughout the year – to bring out our fun side; and a great benefits package – to show how much we value every team member.

Our brand values

Our brand values aren’t just for show – we encourage every member of the Mercator team to embody them as brand ambassadors. We believe in these values and consider them integral to our company:

We don’t stand still 

…we’re constantly evolving, looking at ways to re-new and improve. We make brave decisions and are determined to always find a better way.  

We keep it real

…and don’t pretend to be something we’re not. We’re always straightforward, open and honest. ​ 

We take care

It’s a joint effort

We own our actions

…and we empower each other to take accountability for our words, actions and results. ​ 

We bring out the best 

…in each other, our clients and our partners. Through our sharing of knowledge and enthusiasm, we seek to bring out everyone’s fullest potential.
