Since their inception, IT Career Switch have recruited for hundreds of com- panies across the UK who have trusted the firm to provide them with top quality IT Technicians and IT Support staff. Serving a wide variety of clients, right the way through from large multi-national companies down to medium and small size busi- nesses, IT Career Switch has a specialist in-house recruitment team that work tirelessly for their candidates forming new relation- ships with companies looking for IT staff. Bradley begins by going into further detail about the areas the firm specialises within, noting how IT Career Switch have created a process which enables companies to be matched with a candidate who will hit the ground running when they begin. “Here at IT Career Switch, we specialise in entry level IT & cyber security recruitment. The main benefits for our clients is that they do not have to waste time training new IT staff them- selves, as we ensure that every candidate that we put through to them is fully training and com- petent. As our candidates are of a very high quality, our clients always come back to us meaning we can maintain strong lasting relationships. “Throughout the years we have received a lot of feedback regarding when companies were recruiting for themselves. They often found that some candidates were over-exaggerating their skill level, and once in the job were completely out of their depth. At IT Career Switch, we take the stress out of the recruitment process and make sure that our candidates are ready to come in and hit the ground running.” Matching the right candidate to the client can be a challenge. However at IT Career Switch, they are supported by a team of passionate, hardworking and experienced individuals who work tirelessly to ensure that the perfect match is made. When discussing the internal culture, Bradley is keen to highlight the significant role the team plays in the overall success of the firm. “Our staff plays a massive part in connecting our clients with the best suited candidate. All of our staff go through an extensive training period to ensure that all of our clients receive the best possible service from start to finish. “Today, we have a 4.9/5 star rating on Feefo, with 98% of companies saying they will use us again when recruiting for their next role.” Bringing the interview to a close, Bradley signs off by reflecting on one of the main challenges that has arisen within the industry, and reveals the way the team at IT Career Switch are working to overcome it. “Recently, our clients are noticing a massive problem in recruiting Cyber Security professionals. There is currently a massive shortage of qualified people in IT, a third of companies surveyed in the UK are struggling to find qualified IT professionals. As such, we have recently released our Cyber Security Traineeship which will help fill that void. “Ultimately, we welcome anyone who is looking to start a career in IT, or any company who is looking for top quality IT staff to get in touch.” Contact: Bradley Webb Company: IT Career Switch Address: 160 City Road, London, EC1V 2NX, United Kingdom Telephone: 0207 993 6299 Web Address:
