Dependable, professional IT recruitment partnership

We like to listen to what you want, and together deliver a recruitment service that fits.


Hiring in IT is hard right now

There’s a substantial increase in open headcount within thousands of high growth IT companies, more than ever before, and you’re all competing for the same group of talent.

This leads to IT candidates being inundated by outreach, creating too many options, and resulting in a lack of interest because it’s impossible for businesses to stand out.

Our existing and growing relationships with thousands of candidates solves this challenge. We know exactly who is open to making a move, and precisely what their needs are in order to switch.

Make your life easier by leveraging our network and experience in engaging with hard to access IT candidates, and we’ll help you build the most impactful teams whilst you focus on scaling your organisation.

Just what every company needs!

I was fortunate enough to cross paths with Amy in 2021, she had contacted me in her role as a recruiter regarding a senior position. Amy is one of rare people that have the skills to build a great professional relationship, her incredible work ethic, drive to succeed and interpersonal skills are just what recruiters need, but sadly very few have, she is an absolute pleasure to deal with. I can’t recommend Amy enough, she is a great asset and just what every company needs.

A wealth of wider business knowledge

Amy builds great rapport with candidates, and has a brilliant understanding on what types of person are suited to each role.
Amy also has a wealth of wider business knowledge, that she employs to really tailor her searches.

Darren Robinson - Candidate Attraction & Retention Specialist

A phenomenal recruiter!

From the very first time meeting Amy I knew she had the drive, hunger and determination to succeed. Her outgoing, professional personality gives her the ability to build and maintain relationships with both candidates and clients within the technology industry.
Amy has been extremely successful in securing the right candidate for the right role and vice versa due to taking the time to listen and understand the needs of others.
I highly recommend her to both businesses and candidates.

The most astonishing company out there!

Amy was my first point of contact at the company I had applied for, and she gave a professional impression of herself and the company she represented.

When she was providing me with further information about the company, and telling me about the various departments, she forgot to tell me about her role and her journey to the company. From that, I knew Amy was humble about her profession.

I had also asked Amy what she saw in my potential for the role, and she had picked-up details of information I had told her in my initial chat. This just shows she is a good listener.
Not only does Amy presents herself professionally, she behaves so. She always kept me up-to-date with the processes and helped move things in the right direction...even whilst on holiday!

Lorraine Bull (Saynor) - Head of Account Management

Thanks for an amazing experience!

Amy contacted me regarding an opportunity at Millgate - at the time I wasn't looking to move, but thought, lets hear this lady out...WOW - she went into detail about the company and it struck me that this was the kind of change I needed. She updated me every step of the way through the interview process and I am glad to say, one year in, it really was a great move! Wouldn't be here without her!
