Who we are
Haybrook IT was founded in 1988 in response to the growing demand for both permanent and contract IT staff in Oxfordshire and the wider south of England region. Specialising in technical recruitment within the IT sector, we have worked hard to build a reputation for providing a high level of professionalism, consistency and excellence over the past 3 decades. This reputation has secured our preferred supplier status with both SME’s and large blue chip corporate organisations in the UK; including FTSE 100 technology businesses, government organisations and market-leading start-ups and SME’s.
In 2008 we were acquired by SQCP Ltd, an IT and FinTech recruitment consultancy based in London. This gives us access to a vast national database of jobseekers and jobs, allowing us to provide a better service to both candidates and employers whilst retaining our autonomy and individuality.
For Job Seekers: We offer candidates access to a huge range of jobs with some of the country’s leading employers, many of whom are exclusive to us. We provide free support and guidance throughout the recruitment process and beyond, to candidates of all experience levels.
For Employers: Among employers, we’re known for our deep knowledge of the IT sector, and for our commitment to maintaining the highest level of quality. We make use of innovative candidate sourcing methods, which enable us to find the best candidates for all levels of IT jobs – from support roles to complex technical positions.
We are also passionate about supporting the local tech community by either organising or sponsoring tech meet-ups to allow likeminded individuals to connect either in person or online.
Services for employers
Haybrook IT works in close partnership with many household names, boasting sole or preferred supplier status with some of the UK’s leading companies as well as working with numerous SMEs. We’re able to recruit the best candidates for both permanent and contract roles, regardless of the level of technical complexity involved in the position. We recruit for all positions within the software development life-cycle, together with every aspect of Support and Management.
Recruitment support from start to finish
We’re able to provide you with support and guidance throughout the recruitment process. We’ll be on hand to offer market advice and salary benchmarking, and we can help you create and review job specifications. We’re here to help with interview coaching and facilitation, and we’ll support you through the offer negotiation and acceptance stages as well. We’re also here to offer legislative support and guidance should you need it.
The best candidates in the business
We know that in the current climate of skills shortages combined with improved levels of employee retention, a single method of sourcing candidates no longer produces results. With no extra charge to you, we make use of innovative recruitment methods and advertising campaigns to ensure that we always have a range of high quality jobseekers on our books. Our candidate assessments and shortlisting processes are extremely thorough, so rest assured that we’ll only send you the candidates we think are of the right calibre for your requirements.
