Principal Technology Consultant
Specialises in :
Multiple roles across the IT function including IT Support and Infrastructure Professionals, Software Developers, Data / MI professionals, business analysts, Architects and many more.
Background and experience :
As A Principal Consultant at Eligo I work with clients to secure a clear understanding of the recruitment challenges they face. This ranges from the need to Identify a key individual who is the missing piece of the departmental jigsaw to managing campaigns that are geared to deliver a step-change in IT capability by building teams using permanent and/or contract IT resources.
I am an experienced recruitment professional with over 25 years of experience helping businesses to build the IT team they need to support their organisation. This has ranged from small flexible IT teams looking for that one missing person, to working with large blue-chip clients in the public and private sector to recruit substantial teams. Whilst shaping a culture and capability that enables the implementation of business transformations.
As a result, I have recruited many roles across the IT function including IT Support and Infrastructure Professionals, Software Developers, Data / MI professionals, business analysts, Architects, and members of the IT management and leadership teams up to and including members of the SMT.
I would claim the defining characteristic that enables me to be a success in IT recruitment is that I listen, both to candidates and clients, and use a radical approach to recruitment, I tell the truth about candidates and clients to each other at all times. It's worked so far so I’m sticking with it!
I work with clients developing and delivering recruitment strategies and the resulting campaigns using Executive Search, Advertised Search, and Database Search methodologies, focusing on delivering the highest levels of customer service in the IT Recruitment sector.
If you are a client you can be confident that we will recommend the combination of services you need to solve your recruitment challenge as we have the capacity and capability to adapt to the needs of our clients. If you are a candidate you can be confident that if I ask permission to represent you for a role that I believe you can add real value and will have been open with you about both the challenges and benefits of the role.
