Why Ashdown IT?

Technical understanding

We have a broad understanding of technology and through thousands of conversations with IT professionals, have a firm grasp of the technical responsibilities of all main stream roles. Getting to the technical detail of each of the vacancies we manage enables us to select people that impress at interview.

Geographical reach

Our substantial private database of IT professionals gives us an unrivalled ability to find the right people in any UK location, with even the most demanding skillsets.

Total protection

We're so confident we'll get it right first time, we offer a 100% rebate on all permanent recruitment. The rebate covers the first 3 months of someone's employment.

Instant response

We set ourselves the objective of delivering the very best CVs available within the shortest possible time-frame. We aim to provide a short list of people to interview within 72 hours of you registering a vacancy.



You can take advantage of our 12.5% fee providing you are happy for us to work on your vacancy exclusively for five days. At the end of day five, you can approach other agencies should you feel you need to and our fee remains 12.5%.

If you have already used another agency our introductory fee for new customers is 15%. We have a strong track record of filling vacancies other agencies have failed.



A heavy investment has helped us build a contractor database of just over 200,000 highly skilled people.

With sensible margins, Ashdown IT pay our contractors as much as possible.

For example, a £300 per day Systems Analyst on three month contract has a 15% margin.



Generally for 9 months to 24 months where a general IT skillset is required. Not as expensive as contract day-rate and charged in-line with the permanent fee structure fixed term contracts are a great solution to maternity or secondment cover and long-term absences.
