We're currently recruiting a Recruitment Consultant to be part of our continued growth and successes. But before we get into that, let us tell you a little about who we are and why you should join us:

We are developers.

We are flexible. Recruitment is hard and life can be harder. We recognise this which is why we offer a generous holiday allowance a good pension and private medical insurance. We understand that not everyone's life functions on an 8:30 - 5:30 basis and that's why we also offer flexible working too.
