Our first stop in the recruitment journey begins with our clients. Each of our client’s needs are unique and as an extension of your brand, we take the time to learn all the subtle nuance’s your company has to offer. From the onset we aim to cultivate a detailed description of not only the position that is being recruited for but also noting the cultural and team-based dynamics relevant to the firm and department.

We're diversity hiring advocates

Here at IT Search, we are hugely aware of the importance of diversity and Inclusion in the workplace. Since our inception, we have worked hard to ensure that D&I is built into the fabric of our business.

D&I is one of our core values and our D&I policy ensures that standards are maintained and enhanced. We challenge our consultants to be aware of client bias and to challenge this bias if and when appropriate.

We offer gender bias awareness training on an annual basis, and in the last year, we have put together standards that follow the five stages of the recruitment lifecycle: 1. Plan; 2. Source & Attract; 3. Screen & Interview; 4. Select, Offer & Close; 5. Transition & Measure.

Dedicated Experts

As a specialist agency, being exceptional at what we do is of the highest importance to us and is what makes us stand out amongst the competition. In partnering with IT Search, you’ll access a senior management team of seasoned IT recruitment consultants who have each worked for over ten years in the local IT space.

A Bespoke Approach Unique to You

Each client and assignment requires a customised approach. We strive to develop a feedback and review process with all of our clients ensuring that in demand candidates are safeguarded once engaged. In our experience, a well controlled feedback loop is highly beneficial and reduces candidate attrition.

In the current global IT recruitment climate, candidate experience plays a pivotal role in the perception of a future employer. Timely and accurate post submission/interview feedback helps to increase candidate engagement. In our initial engagements with client partners we aim to ensure agreed processes which are unique to their business operations.

A bespoke approach generates a significant competitive hiring advantage. For us, this approach is core to what we describe as a 'superior search and selection experience'
