You only have to switch on your TV or device to see the new technologies being developed at an almost alarming rate; it is therefore no surprise that the IT industry needs a professional recruitment agency that can keep up!

As one of the UK’s largest cities and one of the recognised hubs for UK technology there are over 21,000 people employed in Sheffield in the IT and digital sector.

Personal, Proactive, Proven – Our Process

Picking a recruitment partner is tough, we know this. IT recruitment companies should be an extension of your business; be able to promote your organisation and sell your career opportunity as well as you can. Unlike many IT recruitment agencies, we advocate a single point of contact approach.

So whether you're looking to recruit permanent talent or contract/interim support, you'll only ever work with one consultant. Through this approach, we're able to develop a long term recruitment partnership with you and gain a deeper understanding of your business needs.

Recruitment can be time-consuming, costly and drag you away from your key duties. We’re here to stop that from happening.

We Do It All, All Over Sheffield

Sheffield is home to two of the most well regarded universities in the UK, boasting up to 65,000 students at any one time – we help talented graduates find their first jobs in IT with fantastic local businesses.  Described as the capital of the north, Sheffield is seen as the only place to work by many, it is no surprise that many graduates are also moving to the area for employment and the range of opportunities on offer.
