Today, we are celebrating 7 years of SKI!

Founded in 2014, by CEO, Steve Rawlingson – Samuel Knight International started life with just four founding team members, in a small start-up office, yet the business quickly scaled to become a global leader in manpower and project solutions.

Fast-forward to 2021 – we now have five offices across the UK and USA – we’re achieving what we set out to do, building a global team to support our clients around the world.

2020 brought a global pandemic, but we didn’t slow down – and continued to open the doors to our brand new, purpose-built HQ, in the heart of Newcastle upon Tyne.

With resilience, tenacity, and a great team – we pushed on and left the year on a bit of a high!


Looking back there’s been so many success stories – portfolio growth, client wins, awards, new office openings, team promotions, and there, of course, have been challenges, obstacles, struggles and hurdles – yet we’ve overcome it all.

A big thank you to our business community, client and candidate network, and the SKI team for everything you do to keep the dream alive. Keep watching as we grow, as we build, as we achieve – in 2021 and beyond.
