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!

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch to discuss how we can help with finding your next technology job or hire.
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.
It's our job to keep abreast of everything within your market. We regularly put together useful resources for you and your team based on this. If there's a report or resource you'd like but don't see, let us know!

Google’s reCAPTCHA tests utilise behavioural analysis, requiring humans to simply tick a box declaring “I’m not a robot”. However, at the end of last year, Google released version 3 of their reCAPTCHA test which analyses a range of signals and gives a score between 0-1, lower scores more likely to be bots and higher scores more likely to be human. Scientists at the University of Toronto focused on tricking Google’s secondary system with machine learning, the invisible scoring isn’t abused but they claim they could still get past the latest reCAPTCHA test. Click here to read more about the AI program that is said to have tricked the reCAPTCHA test. (WIRED) 25/03/2019 UK Government examines AI bias in decision making The UK Government is launching an investigation to determine the levels of bias in the algorithms that could affect people’s lives. The Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation will conduct an investigation that focuses on areas where AI has incredible potential, from policing and recruitment to financial services. But it also could have serious negative impact on lives if not implemented correctly, for example when police utilise it as a tool for ‘Harm Assessment Risk’ the AI determines whether an individual is likely to cause further harm. If the algorithm is more or less effective on individuals with different characteristics over another, the issue of AI bias appears.

Moving abroad for work can bring with it a whirlwind of emotions: excitement, stress, joy and fear. Landing a new job and upping sticks across the globe can be tricky and in order for you to settle down into your new job and place of residence without any hiccups, there are a few things to tick off your working abroad checklist. Get to grips with the culture Every country conducts business slightly differently and you’d be surprised at the alteration between countries, provinces or states work-life balance. Some countries are more formal in their approach to business than others, whereas some can be laidback. But with these differences comes a chance to interact with new people and different cultures, often including tasty food and drink, and the opportunity to create potential long-term friendships. It’s worth doing your research beforehand; do you know someone who currently works or has worked and lived in the country your moving to? If not, try looking at online forums to find out more about the culture, and pose the question to your new employer at the interview stage. Get to know the Visa requirements Each country has varying types of work visas so it’s a good idea to fully research regulations surrounding the one you will be under. Sorting out your Visa is an essential part of the working abroad checklist and a very time-consuming task, so make sure you start this way ahead of time. Information regarding Visa’s can be found here and if you’re working with a recruitment consultant, they will also be able to give you helpful advice on the type of Visa that’s right for you. Figure out the finances An important part of getting ready for working abroad means figuring out your finances and making sure you research and prepare for international taxes, banking and national insurance. Let your bank account back home know where you will be moving to, as using your card abroad without telling your bank can lead to your card being blocked for security. You will also need to open a local bank account as soon as you arrive at your new location, so you are able to receive a wage and pay for rent. Be sure you take into account the difference in currency and calculate your earnings with the cost of living, make sure you don’t get caught short and research general costs etc beforehand. Are you a contractor? You may not be allowed to use your limited company in the country you choose to work in and may have to go through an Umbrella company, if you don’t have one of these ask your recruiter to consult you on this. It’s usually the case that the recruiter already works with an Umbrella company and can advise one suitable for you. Getting set up for the move When getting ready for the actual move, you should pack the essential items straight away and save the not so urgent items for later. Moving to another country can be a little stressful so have a clear out and try and get rid of unnecessary items and get some help from family and friends if you can. Another key working abroad checklist item is sorting out your accommodation. Make sure you arrange your accommodation before you arrive and keep in mind you might need a copy of your employment contract and local bank account details in order to rent a temporary residence. Got kids? Then setting up school arrangements will also be on your working abroad checklist. Don’t forget their educational certificates (translated and officially stamped) and if you think they may need additional help with the local language, make sure you speak straight away with the school or local council. Once you move it’s also a good idea to scout out the area, including the transport and how you will be commuting to the office. Your fellow colleagues will also be able to advise you on the best route to work, along with the best places to eat and drink. Be certain of your decision to work abroad Choosing to work abroad can be an easy decision for some but difficult for others. Have you weighed up the pros and cons of moving? Have you spoken to your partner and family members? Moving can have a big impact on your personal and social life but often for the better! Enjoy it! Working abroad can be scary at first but it can also create some of the best experiences of your life, by stepping out of your comfort zone and exploring and embracing the local culture you won’t regret your decision to work abroad. If you’ve been working with a recruiter to find your new role abroad then they will have advised you about some, if not all, of the things mentioned in our working abroad checklist. However, if you’ve worked with a recruiter previously but came away with a poor experience make sure you are asking your recruiter the right questions. Working abroad isn’t as scary as it sounds and can lead to endless opportunities, professionally and personally. If you’re currently considering a new role, or the chance to relocate for a change of scenery take a look at our latest vacancies or get in touch with us.
