CRITICAL Associates is a trading division of CRITICAL Software’s UK subsidiary that seeks to enhance our skills base and reputation, while opening up employment opportunities for professionals with expertise in software-intensive safety and mission-critical systems.

CRITICAL Associates is not a recruitment agency. It exists solely to ensure that we can always provide the best service possible to our existing clients for systems engineering services.

Requirements Assessment: involves using our supplier insight to understand the resource requirements of our client, the dynamics of the departments involved and the constraints of the projects themselves.

Resource Provision: involves the careful selection and placing of resources at client sites to meet the operational requirements identified.

For the Client: CRITICAL Associates is able to provide dedicated and active support to your resourcing process so please get in touch so that we may assist you in matching your expertise requirements.

For the Candidate: Unlike a recruitment agency, CRITICAL Associates has the associate's and the client's best interests at heart and will always seek to make the perfect match between a candidate and a client. Our professional staff recognise that our continued relationship with our clients is dependent on the quality of service that our first-class associates provide.
