Create IT is headed by Chris Clarke, Ben Cope, and Andrew Smith; school friends who grew up together in Newbury before leaving for the wider world of IT, later to return and combine their fields of expertise into a successful and trusted company.


We focus on providing managed IT services: hosted services (file sharing, business email, and more) and software development, as well as consultancy and project management. Create IT can develop bespoke systems, rather than relying solely upon reselling other vendor’s software, covering anything from CRM to manufacturing control systems, this also saves our customers’ money when compared to traditional licensing and software maintenance costs.

An advantage of building a business with friends is that you’re working with people who already know your strengths and capabilities; it’s not like going into business with a stranger. As a result, clients who have met with the three directors are immediately impressed with the immediate air of trust that the three can create because they really know each other.

Chris, Ben and Andrew have the luxury of knowing how to communicate at that top level successfully, and translate this to their clients.

Where it began

When we first started Create IT in 2010 we had an overarching goal to develop a reputation for providing the right service to our clients. Now, many years later, we have gone further than we imagined towards achieving that – just read our client testimonials.

Create IT was formed and started out in an annexe on Ben’s parents’ farm in Enborne, Newbury. The business has since expanded and Create IT helps clients based in London, Berkshire, Oxfordshire and around the UK.

We love what we do, and we enjoy developing new and innovative ways to save companies money and provide them with peace of mind. And we do all of this from our new premises in Thatcham Business Park.

Who we are

With our dedicated team we provide support over-the-phone as well as on-site. Whether you’re looking to outsource your complete IT function, or if you need a bolt-on to support and enhance your existing team, we have the flexibility and expertise to do that. Whatever your problem is, we will have found a solution before.

We now have over 10 employees, with unique skills that make them a great fit for us – they are committed to the business and make sure they give the best, most professional service to our clients.

Why we do what we do

For many people, the idea of embedding code or thinking of new software is their worst nightmare – but we love it. Throw us a problem and we guarantee we’ll find you a solution.

People and businesses don’t always consider the ramifications of not investing in the right IT. We can take the pain out of thinking ahead, and provide you with a range of options that are manageable and will fit your business plan for growth. As you get more and more successful your IT service needs to complement your expansion.

Social commitment

Our values matter to us, and we pride ourselves on being competitive. But we like to give back to the community, and one of the things that sets us apart from our competitors is our social commitment.

We offer charity rates to deserving causes, either to help get them started, to help improve their infrastructure, or a reduced consultancy fee to find them the right IT partner. We know how much they give to other people, and this is one way we can give something back in a meaningful and lasting way.

We are different, and we are connected to our local community.

The Team

We have a number of IT specialists who come from diverse backgrounds and who bring experience from other established companies.


We are always keen to hear from talented people who can be a fantastic addition to our team. We have a strong work ethic and we all pitch in during creative meetings. Our salaries our competitive and the work we do here puts us at the heart of new and groundbreaking technologies.
