IT Recruitment Specialists

Ashdown IT has been at the forefront of IT Recruitment for over 20 years. One in two of the UK’s IT professionals have worked with the Ashdown Group at some point in their careers.

The breadth of our network has helped us achieve great success for the businesses we work with and this is why 85% of our jobs are registered by returning customers, many using our IT recruitment service to register jobs exclusively.

Why Ashdown IT?

Our strongest asset is our team. In an increasingly competitive industry, our IT recruitment consultants continue to add value to each recruitment campaign by intelligently working in partnership with you, working exactly the way you want to. Providing knowledge, expertise and IT industry insights to ensure your hiring process runs smoothly.

Market Leading Value

Our IT recruitment agency fees are transparent and fair, charging 12.5% of basic salary against each job vacancy when working as sole supplier, whilst maintaining a high quality service. Over 85% of our business comes from returning clients, many recruiting for IT jobs on an exclusive basis. Being market leaders within the IT industry, we are one of the highest rated IT recruitment agencies in the UK.

Technical Expertise

Leading the IT recruitment industry for two decades, we take pride in our ability to establish your requirements and exactly match the skills and experience you are looking for. Whether your search is for expertise in a specific technology, candidates for permanent IT positions or contract consultants to help deliver a project, we are a recruitment agency that delivers.

Access to more IT Professionals

Your vacancy will be marketed to one of the largest private networks of IT specialists in the UK, many not available elsewhere. We have worked with thousands of permanent and contract IT consultants, covering all technologies and specialisms. Our IT recruitment team are dedicated to finding the right candidates for your company, and we relish working on roles where other recruiters have failed.

Success that is Guaranteed

We want your new recruit to be succcesful, which is why we go the extra mile to make sure that they are a perfect fit for you and your company. We also want to continue working with you on future recruitment requirements, so if, in the unlikely event that a candidate doesn’t work out within the first 3 months, we will carry out the entire hiring process again or offer a 100% rebate - guaranteed.
