I spent a decade working for a leading global IT recruitment firm specialising in temporary recruitment. Initially focussed on Financial Services but more recently on the eCommerce, Online & Retail space. For me It’s about working with a client as a strategic partner. Throughout my career the top pain I’ve heard from customers was staffing firms didn’t understand their business and so they would struggle to attract and retain top talent. I want to work with a customer to understand their business so I can partner with them taking a consultative approach in order to provide proactive workforce planning and delivery. Roles I cover - Data - Big Data, Date Science, Database Engineers etc.. Cloud & DevOps - AWS, Azure, GCP etc... Core Infrastructure - Servers, Virtualisation, Storage, Backup etc... Network & Cyber Security
