Our Story

Before setting up BBEcosystem – Irfan (BBEco founder) spent 8+ years building and scaling 3 of the largest freelance consulting desks in Europe for 3 well known recruitment businesses (the Barton Partnership, Holker Watkin and Movemeon).

It’s through these experiences it became apparent a better model for connecting great freelance consultants with exciting project opportunities was possible.

BBEco was born. Our focus remains on maintaining a relationship driven approach offering the high touch contact offered by traditional recruitment agencies – without charging the extortionate placement fees.

Our hybrid working model combines the best of both worlds – the close personal contact offered by traditional recruitment agencies and the digital reach of a projects platform.
