Gone in the blink of an eye! The relentless pace of recruitment this year has made it one of the fastest moving on record, or maybe that’s what comes with age!

Despite the best efforts of the Brexit saga and IR35 deadlines, the IT & Tech sector has continued its march forward. By the time the Auld Lang Syne signs us off for another year, our awesome teams will have delivered close to 1000 candidate introductions across the contract and permanent markets. Cementing our foothold as the most proficient IT recruitment specialist in the region.

We have welcomed another six talented consultants to our company this year and find ourselves in a period of growth and expansion. A shiny new office is taking shape across the Science Park offering more space, more meeting rooms and a bigger social space for our growing teams - we aim to be in by March.

Movers & Shakers – Southampton as a destination for hi-tech business!

A great testament to the people of Southampton, Portsmouth and the South Coast region is the growing number of technology businesses setting up residence in the area. The local and national press have listed Southampton 5th on a table of Tech Hubs in the UK, besting Cambridge & Bristol in terms of tech company growth and prosperity. You will now find Starling Bank joining the ranks of other prestigious businesses in the region, along with a number of hi-tech start-ups and fast-growth businesses opening regional offices to tap into our talented population of technologists.

​Technology, as we know, doesn’t sit still and there have been some incredible advancement in technology R&D with AI, Machine Learning and Data Science disciplines becoming a staple of modern technology.

Join us at one of the several tech user groups we sponsor in the region to stay on the pulse of modern technology and stay in tune with industry best practice through the experts in their field.

Will you start the fans please!

No year would be complete without our annual company birthday bash and the ample opportunity to celebrate success with our quarterly and yearly sales incentives.

Winning Spectrum Team at The Crystal Maze

Ibiza was host to our annual winners trip (2018 top performers) and a record attendance of  13 consultants made it an epic and memorable occasion - you’re never too old you know!

To mark our 11th year birthday we went on a nostalgia packed adventure at the Crystal Maze in London, followed by an evening at Swingers crazy golf and the usual shenanigans that come with a sales teams day out.

A huge congratulations to Ryan Oatley on becoming 2019’s top billing consultant and a special mention to all the marriages, babies and big birthdays celebrated throughout the year. 

If you are in the recruitment industry yourself and like what you see, contact us, we’re always on the lookout for top talent to take us to another level.

Thank you & best wishes

We would like to say a huge thank you to all of our consultants, account managers and our awesome office & finance team without whom this place would fall apart!

Thanks also to our customers who trust in us and afford us the time and patience to deliver on even the most demanding of schedules.

Merry Christmas from everyone at Spectrum IT
