IT recruiters in York, Leeds, Edinburgh, Sheffield recommendations please
As it says on the tin.
Any IT software development recruiter recommendations that have knowledge of York, Leeds, Edinburgh or Sheffield areas please.
Or someone looking for a nice fresh grad.
My lad is a fresh grad with a BSc 1st in Computer Science now looking in roughly these areasPosted 1 week ago
If he isn’t on LinkedIn, he needs to be.
Then spend some time advertising himself.Posted 1 week ago
Lloyds Banking Group worth a look.Posted 1 week ago
TCS (Tata Consultancy Services are global and looking. I have three more grads to interview this week.Posted 1 week ago
I wouldn’t bother with recruiters. I’ve been working in IT for a while, and I’ve had zero luck with them. Get on a few job sites and apply for a few things, would be my advice.Posted 1 week ago
We’re not quiet in those areas (Leicestershire) but looking for software devs. Happy to pass on his detailsPosted 1 week ago
As a person who has had 2 new jobs in the sector this year I tend to chose a company and go with that, I’ve not used recruiters ever as far as I can remember.
CompSci is a wide term, does he have an area of interest, dev, networking, machine learning/data science. Anything that pays?Posted 1 week ago
No need for recruiter if looking for startup / growth stage co…
1. Find company he wants to work for.
2. Send cover letter and CV / Linked in profile with link to GitHub / any projects he has done on the side.
He will get a job. Any decent / interesting co is finding it hard to recruit devs right now. Going direct will save them 20-30%.
If looking for Large co simply apply to Grad scheme and also avoid recruiters.
Can work remote + interested to play with REST / GraphQL API’s but needs training then DM me!
Has qualified with a comp sci degree but doesn’t know what GitHub or API is. Use a recruiter, they will still get him a job somewhere 😂Posted 1 week ago
Highly recommend Ally at LEA Recruitment – https://www.leaconsultancy.co.uk/careers
Lovely lady who does a proper recruitment job and with lots of contacts in the North West and Sheffield areas.Posted 1 week ago
Tech grad Scheme opened up at Aviva in York, applying now for start next Sept
Surely if it’s in IT the location is irrelevant? My daughter’s boyfriend started a graduate software development job or something along those lines with accentia ( ?sp) in Newcastle a few weeks back. He’s not been to the office yet…Posted 1 week ago
My old company regularly take on graduates from NorthCoders – might be worth a look. (York)Posted 1 week ago
If his compsci degree included any data science, get him to brush up on practical applications of data science (some of the AWS tools are a good place to start) and go and chase that. ££££££££££.Posted 1 week ago
Find company he wants to work for.
Don’t underestimate how hard that is for someone not currently in the industry. There’s an argument to say that’s exactly why you use a recruiter, as they do know the companies and who is looking for what.Posted 1 week ago
What is it he’s looking for? We have a few openings at our place that can be remote, office is based in Lincoln.
If you want drop me a pm and I’ll send you the details.Posted 1 week ago
The suggestion to have stuff on GitHub is a good one. Almost anything at all he’s done, or does in his own time – it will stand out.
Oh, and meaningful commit messages. I always go peek under that particular rug, can be informative about how a person will work in a team.Posted 1 week ago
Thx all, Appreciated.
I will get hold of his latest CV & pass on to those that have offered & send him a link to here.Posted 1 week ago

Not really, post-pandemic a lot of companies will require staff to be in the office a certain number of days per week (it will be one day per week for me but thankfully they keep postponing the return to office date).
Also there’s certain security cleared roles you just can’t do remotely (by the way, anyone that’s starting out in IT now should keep security clearances in mind, the employer should fund going through clearance and it opens up a lot more roles and IME takes you out of redundancy pool selections when there’s a down turn…)Posted 1 week ago
IT recruitment agencies in Edinburgh:
I’d recommend going into IT at a financial services company. The pay is significantly higher than other industries and financial services places only really take people with experience in financial services so hard to get into later. Good way to get startedPosted 1 week ago
For a slightly different perspective, have you heard of Grayce? They take on graduates as devs or change people and offer them on a placement basis to businesses with a view to permanent roles later. I nearly used one of their grads and was really impressed, but went a different way in the end.
It’s a really good model and one I wish I had known about before!Posted 1 week ago
Thanks again all.
I have responded direct to those that have kindly messaged me & sent him this link for him to trawl the help.
Grayce – no not heard about that but as I am too recruiting for a grad I will also take a look.Posted 1 week ago
