Skillsearch work in a very unique way compared to many recruitment companies in the industry. They take the time to understand the candidates and through this have developed a strong network, certainly everyone I have worked with speaks of them very highly. They have put me forward for roles only where there is a good match in skills, so taking the time to understand the in depth roles they fill. Which is echoed in the comments from the companies I have worked for. The proof of this is the contract and a permanent role that they have placed me in, during which time they always act with the utmost professionalism. I look forward to working with them again.

Through my work at Unity Technologies, and as organiser of the London Unity Usergroup, I have a very close connection with Unity developers throughout the UK. A common theme amongst Unity developers is a call for Unity jobs. On the flip side to this, I visit many studios that are looking for Unity developers to fill vital positions for the development of exciting new projects. It was clear that communication between individual developers and studios needed improving. It's great that Skillsearch have taken the initiative and are focussing on improving the communication between Unity developers and studios.

Russ Morris, Product Evangelist | Unity Technologies

Giles and the Sillsearch team exceptional recruiters, on multiple occasions he has delivered more potential hires (high quality relevant candidates) to interview than any other tech agency I have worked with. I especially appreciate his capacity to understand our need, and adjust as the process moves forward, with minimal need for how intervention.

Gil Teixeira, Head of Production | Arkavis Siam Co. | Bangkok, Thailand

We have worked with the Skillsearch team for almost three years now as our only recruitment supplier, and with great success supplying staff across all disciplines. They are the only agency that seem to truly understand the interactive space and have a genuinely broad network within it! It is also always a nice touch when we bump into the Skillsearch team sponsoring and attending various social events surrounding cutting edge technologies. Highly recommended!!

Daniel Cheetham, Head of Interactive | Happy Finish

Katie is a great recruiter to work with. She is very efficient at replying and dealing to any form of communication I sent and the wider Skillsearch team are also always very supportive. I look forward to working with you again.

Luke Zammit, Unity Developer | Future Games of London

As a leading Oracle consultancy we initially engaged with Skillsearch around 2 years ago when they were just part of our recruitment supplier network. Over that period they have demonstrated a consistent level of delivery in the niche Oracle space that has led us to dispense with our other recruiters and work exclusively with Skillsearch. We have taken the relationship to the level that they come to us with potential sales leads and in turn we are happy to promote them, when appropriate, directly to our clients.

Skillsearch has been a great help in finding and securing my position at GTI. They were brilliant for advice and that meant the whole application and interview process went very smoothly for me, and ultimately ended with me getting the job.

Toby New, Developer | GTI

When we need extra resources, Skillsearch is always one of our first ports of call – Giles has a very good understanding of our industry and can always find the perfect candidate for our needs.

Marina Burton, Plug-In Media

Skillsearch helped me find my first contracting role in BI. They were very polite, helpful and enthusiastic. They found a very good position for someone with my skills and I was placed immediately. A wholly enjoyable job finding experience and I would definitely recommend Skillsearch to any skilled data analyst.

Data Analyst Candidate

The folks at Skillsearch are all you could ask for in a recruitment agency: polite, enthusiastic and thorough. Working with Giles, Guy and Katie has been a real pleasure and I would definitely turn to Skillsearch to help me in the future, as either an employer or candidate. Thanks!
