Who we are

Founded by Andrew Chester and Elizabeth Miles in 1992 Iken has grown into a market-leading international business with an open and friendly culture. With people who've been with us for over ten years, as well as an active graduate recruitment programme, Iken professionals are friendly, experienced and passionate about the company.

The name Iken is derived from the Scottish verb "to ken" meaning "to know". Related to the adjective "canny", describing someone who is wise, perceptive and incisive, we want to help you to be cannier. Iken software has been developed to help you and your team extend your "ken" by having exactly the right information at hand precisely when you need it.
