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!

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!
