Dev / Tech recruitment

Dev & Tech team

Our consultants are complete specialists in their markets, attracting the most in-demand developers, architects and technology leaders.

The biggest challenge about recruiting in tech is also the best thing; the top candidates are difficult to find, they don’t advertise themselves on CV sites and it’s very rare they actively look for work. They just don’t need to...

This means we’re at our best when we truly embed ourselves in our markets and build unique relationships with people by meeting them in person, whether that be for a coffee, beer or at one of the many tech industry meetups or events across your city.
