What they say about Volcanic

Ik Onyiah, Head of Operations, said:

Working with Volcanic has been a great opportunity to focus on our brand identity and ensure that our messaging is consistent both internally and externally. As a niche recruiter, it was important to us that our new website provided our users with a unique and almost siloed view of the sector; it would have been pointless for us to populate the new site with irrelevant information, as our clients are functional, practical people who want to be able to quickly digest information that is applicable to them."
