Recruitment Consultant - IT Leadership

Posted 16 March by Gattaca

Our market is exciting and really fulfilling. We are placing Leadership-level candidates which means we are constantly stimulated and challenged by our people. The people we place, and recruit for, are highly intelligent, successful people.

Talking to these candidates on a daily basis makes us naturally sharp, stimulated and energised in our roles. Our approach is positive, relationship-led and highly proactive, which will suit someone seeking this type of environment.

For the second year in a row, we have been awarded the accolade of Technology Team of the Year at the annual staff awards. Whilst this is in itself a great achievement, it captures a number of collective achievements that we have shown over the past 12 months. These include consistently exceeding our targets since the team was formed; the growth in team numbers (we have doubled in size over the past two years) and we have made significant progress with a number of key clients.

The Team

  • 11 staff
  • We deliver over £1.3M in margin per annum
  • We have grown from 5 staff this time two years ago
  • We work with over 30 clients
  • We have exceeded our targets consistently since the team was formed and are going to be over 5% ahead of our half year target as of January 2018

The team is diverse. We have a mix of personalities, nationalities, interests and academic backgrounds. For example, we can speak English, Spanish, Bengal, Polish, French and Russian between us! What we all have in common is that we can build genuine rapport with people in our market, obtain leads, get recommends and take a true networking approach. Day-do-day we are a supportive and collaborative bunch that help each other and genuinely want everyone else to do well.

What sets us apart from other competitors?

Knowledge and approach are our key differentiators. The Leadership market is not as candidate-scarce as some of the other areas we cover within Networkers and as such the real value for our clients is in understanding who the good candidates are - being able to identify a strong Project Manager, Business Analyst or Change Manager amongst the crowd. The reason we can outperform competitors is that we spend real time building relationships with our candidates, often face-to-face, which allows us to truly understand them, and align them to the cultural fit of our clients. We have a mature approach to market, with the vast majority of our success coming from recommendations and referrals backed up with high activities and proactivity, as opposed to 'old school' cold calling.

The Candidate:

Leadership will suit someone that wants to apply a strategic and relationship-led approach to sales, is highly energetic and proactive, and wants to be stimulated by the people and technologies they are engaging with.

Given the salaries and contract rates we place at, rewards are high for the placements you make!
