Tap in to our technical expertise.

We back up our clients’ IT teams with Consultants and Engineers on site for longer term projects. From a few months to several years, our staff members and associates are based at client sites across the UK helping to deliver enterprise projects, particularly in Custom Software Development, SharePoint and BizTalk systems implementation and development, and SQL Server database development and Administration.

We'll hire for you like we hire for ourselves. As a software development specialist, we understand the challenges you face in finding just the right person for the job because we've been there. Often IT recruitment agencies simply don't understand or possess the in-depth knowledge required to meet briefs for specialised Microsoft technologies. Since we're in the industry and a certified Microsoft Gold Partner we know exactly what to look for and, importantly, why.
