Meet our IT Recruitment Consultant


Dan joins The Candidate with three years IT and Technology recruitment experience and is utilising his skillset to develop this very department within The Candidate. 

It's been no secret that we have placed candidates within this industry prior to Dan starting, but now we have him; we're hoping to help place contractors and temporary Developers and Designers into businesses within the North West.

From Dan's extensive knowledge of the market, it is very candidate limited presently but our aim is to help make sure the right people go into the right role.

We know how hard it can be for businesses to attract good Developers. We also know how hard it can be for Developers to find the right position or assignment. That's why we've worked hard to build up a network of candidates with sought after skillsets, such as PHP expertise, alongside a plethora of successful UK businesses utilising the latest technologies.

Looking to fill or apply to roles that suit any of these skillsets listed below, get in touch:

HTML5, CSS3, PHP, SQL, Asp.NET, Java, JavaScript, #C, Python, Objective-C, Drupal, Wordpress, Magento, Ruby on rails, SharePoint

Good Designers are a crucial part to any front-end IT project. We recognise that; whilst design skills can be taught, an eye for detail and a fantastically-creative mind are essential. That's why we always ask for a portfolio from candidates in the first instance because in this industry examples of your work will paint a stronger picture of a candidate's skillset than the CV alone.

As a client, we know how important the 'look' of your business is to ensure brand consistency for the end user or customer. After all, you only make a first impression once. That's why we've built up a network of top notch Designer; all of which come with a portfolio for your perusal.

Whether you are a Designer or Client; if you have or are looking for any of the following, why not get in touch?

HTML5, CSS3, Javascript, Photoshop, Illustrator, Fireworks, Gimp, Flash, UX, UI, jQuery

Dan may be new to The Candidate but he isn't new to the industry. Get in touch with him today and find out how your business brand can soar and how you can influence the soaring.

It didn’t take long to build rapport with Laura, as her excellent communication skills shone through from the start. She placed me in my most recent position and was very thorough in liaising between myself and my prospective employer at the time - an often understated skill. Moving to a new city for the position at short notice was not going to be easy, but Laura made sure I was as informed and prepped as possible when going through the interview stages and seemed to always have my best interests at heart. One of the most personable recruiters I have worked with, and I will certainly be calling her first when I am considering changing position again!
