We would like to take this opportunity to thank our clients, candidates and attendees of our events for their ongoing support throughout 2017. Our continuous growth and success would not have been possible without you. 

"And in our world of plenty,
we can spread a smile of joy." 


Following on from the success of previous years, MBN Solutions were proud to be collecting gift bags/shoe boxes filled with inexpensive gifts once again this Christmas. Understanding the poverty that affects children/families in Scotland, Georgia, our Project Executive wanted to ensure that as many children as possible in Glasgow and surrounding areas, wake up with a present to open on Christmas morning.

The aim was to gather as many gifts as possible for age ranges 0-16yrs for boys and girls filled with items such as toys, puzzles, toiletries, hats & scarves, pyjamas, chocolate & sweets.

We are so excited to say that Georgia has managed to collect 112 bags with extra toys and games which were all donated to Glasgow Women's Aid, for underprivileged kids in Glasgow & surrounding areas.

A massive thank you to all who donated to this brilliant cause!


MBN were proud to support Big Data Scotland. 


MBN Solutions were proud to be exclusive recruitment partners for Big Data Scotland 2017.

MBN members had a great time last week at the conference in Our Dynamic Earth, Edinburgh. It was lovely to meet lots of interesting people from various backgrounds in the Data Community.

Organised by DIGIT, the conference brought together technologists, data experts and business leaders to explore the evolution of Big Data Analytics. The event contextualised the vast range of analytics tools, and offered practical examples of how they can be applied to specific tasks in processing, mining and visualisation.

The event provided a great opportunity to network and we hope everyone enjoyed the day as much as we did.

'Tis the season to be jolly

Another successful year has passed and it was time for MBN to enjoy the annual Christmas Party. It was a great evening as everyone celebrated at the Oran More last week.

MBN Solutions is going through exciting times and our people are the most important assets driving change, creativity and innovation. Michael Young, CEO of the MBN Group commented “It’s a great testament to the performance of our people and their ability to continue to deliver value to MBN clients and we have one of the highest levels of repeat business in the recruitment sector. This has clearly contributed to our ongoing success and our deeply impressive continued growth”.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our employees, clients and candidates for their ongoing support throughout the years. MBN Solutions would not be possible without them and we look forward to continued success and new ventures in 2017.

A Night of Scottish Technology & Whisky

MBN Solutions were proud to partner with the Scottish Business Network to bring three leading Scottish based business founders to the London community.

Phil Grady, CEO at Castlight Financial discussed two of their products. The first product; Affordability passport, is unlike current practices as this takes into account REAL TIME transactional and credit data. The second product spoke about was CaaS. This product takes customers transactional data, the neural networks can categorise uses based on their pattern of spending behaviour & predict likelihood to default.

Peter Ferry, Founder of Wallet Services, spoke about the company and how they simplify the application of Distributed Ledger Technology and how it can address fundamental problems of the Internet Age.

Joining Phil and Peter was Calum Leslie; founder of Peatreekers. Peatreekers launched on 10th November and last night we had the chance to learn about and taste some of the first drops of Calum’s original release:Double Standard, an Islay blended malt.

At MBN, we’re more than just another recruitment business. We are a full service People Solutions business specialising in finding and securing the very best staff and talent for our clients. This requires us to have an in depth knowledge and appreciation for the sectors and skill areas in which we operate.

Our thought leadership can be seen on our website, but it is the compilation of such commentary that allows us to share our unique insight. MBN decided in 2012 to launch a series of regular events where we invite industry leaders, clients and interested parties to share an evening of networking, presentations and general insight into the areas of our subject matter expertise, namely, Technology, Data Science & Analytics and Digital Initiatives.
