We don't see ourselves merely as a separate entity or supplier to the Tech industry, we believe we are a part of it; getting out from behind our desks and engaging with the people that make it. We're proud to host, support, and attend various meetups, community groups, and events. Here's some of the ones coming up. Looking forward to seeing you there!
With a genuine passion for the technology market and its community, our consultants go the extra mile recruiting for roles in Open Source, Mobile and Sitecore Development, Testing, Data Science and Analytics, Support and Infrastructure, SAP and ERP. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch to discuss how we can help with finding your next technology job or hire.
We have teams dedicated to covering a range of specialist markets including a Birmingham office for Midlands related recruitment and a bi-lingual International team working across Europe.
Eligo consultants really understand the technology space, and are exceptionally attentive to client requirements, constantly refining their approach according to feedback. A standout service.
Eligo's insight into the candidate market is invaluable and the consultants have a real grasp of what we are looking for.
What makes Eligo different is the amount of time they invest in getting to grips with my company's requirements - not only in terms of the technologies but also the cultural requirement.
The Eligo technology team are a breath of fresh air. It's refreshing to work with agents who understand my craft, and who take the time to understand me as a person and what it is I am looking for. If you are working with Open Source technologies and you aren't part of the Eligo family, then you should be.
We worked with Eligo on two challenging hires; we couldn’t have asked for better support. Following a detailed briefing session with us on the role, our culture and needs they immediately understood our talent requirements. We were quickly presented with a strong bench of candidates, helping us employ two exceptional staff members to very specific briefs and in short order.
They are a pleasure to work with and I would certainly recommend them to anyone looking for assistance in finding top talent.
iDirect primarily engaged Eligo to utilise their network of Front End focused technical talent. Whilst performing well in this area, what really impressed me was their dedication to assisting the organisation across the board, including roles a lot of front-end recruiters would consider way out of their remit. Great service and excellent delivery from Eligo recruitment.
Eligo has shown great enthusiasm and efficiency in providing the quality candidates we need. They invest time to fully understand our culture and take a real interest in what we do as a business. With new projects around the corner, we're looking forward to working more closely with Eligo to increase our recruitment drive.
Eligo take the time to understand the environment and the culture of your business which shows in the quality of the candidates they put forward. They have found a number of gems for us and now Eligo are the only recruiter I go to when looking to fill a position in my team.
Eligo are one of those rare agencies in the technical recruitment industry that care and understand about the importance of communities in Open Source and other technical disciplines. They are an advocate of getting people into the right place and are constant supporters of community events.
Recruiters have a pretty bad reputation in the Open Source community. But Eligo consultants are a shining example of what a recruiter should be.
Eligo is an exclusive partner of CV-Library and helps to support us with our technical recruitment, particularly with the harder to fill, senior roles. Rick has really taken the time to get to understand our team and the needs of the business, and as a result, is able to provide us with truly exceptional candidates. We've seen really positive results using Eligo and would definitely recommend it's services to others.
Not only has Eligo helped us to successfully build our Perl team, but they have been a constant support to me in my role. They are always there with advice on our market and support me in what I'm trying to achieve. We've now been to events with Rick which has increased our brand within the market.
Anne Rooke from Eligo has been responsible for bringing a wealth of IT talent to Dr Logic and has for the most part staffed our Company over the last few years! Working with Anne is almost like having an in-house recruitment specialist; she understands us like no other recruiter we’ve worked with and keeps one step ahead so that when we do have a requirement she often has someone earmarked for us already! Anne is professional but so easy to talk to she feels more a friend of the business than a supplier; she even popped across with Eligo beers for the team when we celebrated our 15th birthday earlier this year. It’s great having someone like Anne who understands the sort of talent we seek; she has an uncanny knack of finding the best people for our team, time and time again and I would have no hesitation in recommending her as a first class recruiter.
The Eligo Academy helped me to learn how to work correctly in the SAP industry, which was completely new for me at the time. I never felt any sort of pressure and that condition allowed me to be efficient and improve my skills very quickly. At the same time, I was able to create an honest relationship with the management as they have always offered me their full support.

Summer is behind us, but before we say goodbye let's take a look back at the hottest tech news of August from the ongoing cyber security skills gap and NordVPN adding full support for M1 Macs, to the Perl Foundation facing more company departures, and React.js takes the web framework crown in the latest Stack Overflow survey.

How you can make an impact with non-technical skills as well as your code. When we think about people skills, and using them, in a technology environment, examples can vary from showing empathy for users to having self-awareness and good problem-solving techniques. These examples of non-technical transferable skills actually can make a much bigger impact on your role and become just as important as your coding ability. You know that it’s your technical talent and expertise that makes you qualified to fill a software developer role within a company. But how can you stand out from the competition? Once you’ve landed your dream coding role, do you have the right transferable non-technical skills to further develop your career? Some of these skills you may already have and are using successfully, read below to find out. Communication The ability to communicate effectively is a skill that all employees need, but it can also be one of the most challenging to master for some. It is important to remember that interactions with others in the business and on your team, end up mattering more than the code you write. When interacting and working with others in the company it's essential to communicate without jargon, so that you are able to communicate with everyone on all levels. Not only are your interactions more important than the code you write, but the code you write can also improve your interactions with others. The key to good communication in your team is to always ask questions! In any situation, it’s vital to ask why, listen, and be able to respond effectively. Poor communication can lead to a lack of progression in a project and disrupt the team dynamic; if you are overlooking and not discussing problems you may be having at work it can lead to tension between employees and in the long run, inhibit your growth in the company. Teamwork and social skills Whether you work remotely or on-site, you are always going to be a part of a team. Teamwork is not just about working together as a group it’s also about social skills and support. By knowing each team member's strengths and weaknesses and being able to empathise, can benefit immensely. You might be a team leader assigning tasks to the team to improve efficiency or struggling to track and eliminate a bug in your code and by fully understanding the people you work with, you will know the person in your team that you can turn to for help. When working as a team, the little things are important – from greeting your colleagues in the morning, complaining out loud less, avoiding being cynical, and more aware of opportunities available. Having a positive attitude will not only make things easier for you when facing challenges and obstacles but will also lead your colleagues to offer you help in return. The key to great teamwork is to voice your opinion constructively, inspire others and be trustworthy. Adaptability Change in the workplace can range from having to learn new skills, taking on extra responsibilities, and projects being cancelled to a change in working hours, relocation, and business mergers. It’s unreasonable to expect all change to embraced by everyone, but how you react and handle these types of change demonstrates your ability as a successful developer. Remember that it’s hard to work with people who reject change, by reacting to change positively and looking for the benefits and opportunities within it, you can keep you and your team motivated and positive during hard times of change. Whether you work for a large corporation or a small start-up, being adaptable and wearing many hats is essential and can make a bigger impact on your career than the code you write. Creativity A Quora user once said “[Software Engineering] is perhaps the most creative field imaginable” – “It’s just your thoughts and a screen waiting to be filled with code. In that screen, you can create anything.” Being creative essentially means having the ability to come up with something new, and every time a developer writes code, he or she is on the way to creating a solution that has never been created before. Creative thinking can be a great skill to have in your developer arsenal in the workplace; from coming up with a new idea for a product or feature that could be an asset to your company to ideas for a better system or how to manage internal processes. Creativity and having an intrapreneurial (proactive and self-motivated) mindset can also show you are invested in your company and work because you are determined to develop and improve on it. Non-technical skills are just as important as technical ability when working as a developer, and having both can make a talented individual into a great employee, and a top-notch team player. Having these skills paired with great technical talent will not only make you a better developer but will also help you to build up a successful coding career. If you’re looking for new development or coding opportunity, then take a look at our current developer and open source roles here!
