Who We Are


Leading IT Recruitment

Skillsearch Technology’s task is to ensure that our clients are equipped with the very best industry professionals in their niche IT sectors.

As a leading IT recruitment agency, we are able to provide them with top specialists in SaaS Technologies such as Salesforce and Workday, PeopleSoft, OracleSAP, and Business Intelligence and we are able to do so within tight timescales, across the UK and internationally.

We are focused, we are knowledgeable, and we are efficient. Most of all, we care about placing the right people in the right roles, where they are really able to add value.

Priding ourselves on our in-depth industry awareness, we have built a strong in-house training programme that provides our specialist IT Recruitment Consultants with the tools and motivation to really get to know the technologies they are recruiting within and keep up with the trends and demands of their marketplaces.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide our clients with top IT talent in niche technologies; delivering a highly professional, targeted and efficient service through a proactive approach and in-depth industry awareness.

Our Values

  • Pursuing excellence through on-going Training and Development

    Skillsearch is a people-focused organisation who encourages our clients to invest in talented IT professionals who can really add value to their business. As such we also invest in our own people. We have an in-house Training Manager who has devised an on-going development programme for all of our Consultants. Our approach is to provide both our clients and our candidates with a slick and highly professional service, and so our Consultants are trained to target only the candidates who meet the client requirements, and likewise match the candidates only with roles aligned with their ambitions. The industry-aware initiatives that we promote in our people have resulted in a Consultancy team who are highly specialised in their niche area of recruitment and so able to operate with swift efficiency and boast an impressive success rate.

  • The Green Objective

    Skillsearch recognises that we have a responsibility to the environment beyond legal and regulatory requirements. We are committed to reducing our environmental impact and continually improving our environmental performance. For example, our lighting is motion sensor based helping to reduce energy use, we recycle everything we are able to and we have a bike store and shower, encouraging employees to cycle to work. We endeavour to incorporate environmental factors into business decisions and are always looking for new means of reducing our carbon footprint.

  • Supporting Special Effect

    Since its formation Skillsearch has supported many different charities through various fundraising events. In 2015 Skillsearch has chosen to support Special Effect. Much like Skillsearch, Special Effect believe that technology should be used to enhance people’s lives and Special Effect work to modify video games so that they can be enjoyed by those with physical disabilities. Known as ‘the games charity’, Special Effect demonstrate that video games can provide fun and bring family and friends together, having a hugely positive impact on the lifestyles of those most in need of it. Throughout the year we will be raising funds through a variety of activities. Please keep up with our charity work by following us on Twitter or LinkedIn. Learn more about Special Effect at

Our History

Skillsearch was established in Brighton in 2006 by founder Stuart Gillespie and is headed up by Director Richard Fisher. The company’s primary focus was on the niche technology markets including PeopleSoft and Business Intelligence. Over the past 8 years this has expanded and we have also become established industry-recognised recruiters in Oracle and SAP and more recently Cyber Security and SAAS technologies including Workday and Salesforce. In addition Skillsearch Technology operates a specialist division placing C/ETRM professionals within the niche energy and commodity trading markets and are proud to be the only pure ETRM talent partner to globally source talent.

  • In 2010 Skillsearch responded to the rise in demand for talented specialists within the mobile and gaming arenas, by forming Skillsearch Digital. Through applying our knowledge of the sector and the harnessing our ability to form strong relationships with talented digital professionals, we have fast become one of the few major players in the gaming, interactive and mobile arenas.

    Skillsearch are proud to work with a diverse range of clients in their niche markets, from some of the world’s largest global companies through to small independent businesses and start-ups. We have a global reach and have recently made successful placements in China and Thailand.
