We offer this to candidates

We are experiencing a very large number of individual jobseekers telephoning in at this time given market conditions. If you are wanting to move into an IT career we provide some helpful information on our website. Unfortunately we rarely have entry level roles. If you are an established IT professional please take a look at our current list of IT vacancies on our website or register with us via our website. Thank you. Permanent IT job-seekers: Moving jobs is a big decision. We understand our responsibility to support you. The decision to commence searching for a new permanent IT role is significant and has important implications for both you as an individual and your family. We never forget this and are careful to offer a supportive, impartial and confidential service to you. We will never coerce you into making premature decisions on job options. We respect the right for all parties to make decisions in their time, not ours. At all times throughout the recruitment cycle we will act very responsibly. If you are fed up with \"slick\", \"fast-talking\", \"over-familiar\" or \"pushy\" IT recruitment consultants you will find us to be refreshingly different. We will always email you with full, complete vacancy details (detailing who our client is) and wait until we receive email confirmation from you before presenting you as a candidate. We will endeavour to ensure our service to you is professional and informative. We work hard to have a strong knowledge of all the roles, products and disciplines within the IT fraternity. IT Contractors: Every working day of every year since 1997 IT consultants have been adding value on assignments via Deerfoot. Stability If you are contracting via an agency, you should carry out some due diligence to ensure the agency is stable with both a good trading history and ample cash reserves. Deerfoot IT has returned appropriate profits each and every year of trading (since 1997) and has cash reserves in excess of £1m. We are a stable partner for you. Payments We have a great back-office accounts team and following on from helping you secure a good assignment, we understand that the most important service we can provide is to pay you efficiently. We pay on both weekly or monthly frequencies (depending on end client invoicing requirements) and pay as cleared funds within 14 days of invoice / delivery. Contracts Although our contracts always need to reflect the reality of relationships, we hope you and your advisors will find them workable for your needs whether your concerns focus on IR35, AWR or conduct regulations. We will try to be supportive where we can on any amendment requests. Approach We are gentle throughout the whole contract placement life-cycle. We respect your 'position' and never use clever 'closing' techniques to get you to commit. (No false deadlines for accepting a contract, no imaginary second choice candidate waiting in the wings, no lies when it comes to what our client is willing to pay. We will tell you what our margin fee is and are happy for you to verify with the end client once on site

We offer this to employers

We are one of the most established independent IT recruitment consultancies in the UK. Every working day of every year since 1997 our focus has been on IT talent search & engagement best practice. Appropriate IT Recruitment Support Mindful of the ever-changing landscape in recruitment best practice we provide a mature, objective and educated IT candidate search service that fully supports in-house HR/Talent teams and IT departmental managers. We consistently achieve results quickly, securing top IT talent for our clients across all IT roles & disciplines. We will always deliver our service in the manner you dictate. We never cut corners or side-step SLAs. Our aim is to foster long-term relationships founded on acting as a true business partner that you want to engage with. Delivery ability We have a 23-year track record of assisting organisations of all sizes and scale with their IT recruitment needs. Our year on year financial strength and excellent D&B credit rating providing further evidence of our history of consistent IT recruitment success. See a sample list of organisations that work with us on our ‘about us’ page. Candidate Reach We believe we have access to 90% of all UK IT job-seekers. We spend significantly on the leading pay per view IT specific and all industry job portal CV databases, social media platforms as well as maintaining an in-house CV database build up over the past 22 years. We advertise roles across all the consistently good job portals and social media platforms and harness CV search using world leading semantic search tools and in-house developed memoRecruit software to build IT talent pools. We have a mature and proven approach to engaging with passive candidates too. Compliance & Governance We have been audited annually for the past 20+ years by BSI (*the world’s leading authority on business process standards). We have been awarded the BSI quality standard every year. We are also a full REC member, our industry’s trade body. Unique fee structure Take a look at the various functional role pages across this website to view our varying fee structure. We offer some immensely competitive fees for a short 5 business day sole agency window. Furthermore, we don’t apply any temp to perm fees on temp hires either. *To the best of our knowledge we are the only UK IT recruitment agency to offer this. Candidate engagement We engage gently and respectfully with IT candidates. We are careful to provide full & complete details on vacancies/organisations to enable candidates to make a considered decision on whether to apply. We don’t pressure individuals to make premature decisions. This means all candidate applications we send you will be of candidates that have a genuine and positive interest in working for you. Knowledge Internal training is centred on technology and IT function understanding. We hold knowledge workshops to collectively deepen our understanding of all legacy, current and emerging technologies and how software products and functions interact to better able to support our clients consistently. Knowledge is a core strength of our offering. Responsibility Responsibility sits heavily on our shoulders. We have a responsibility to present candidates factually and objectively to recruiting clients. Highlighting any concerns as well as showing strengths. In turn, we are careful to give true clarity on job opportunities to candidates. We know a job move can have far-reaching implications for an individual so we don't brush over any concerns a candidate may have. We never forget our responsibility. Agency bugbears Fed up with fast-talking, over-familiar, pushy recruiters. That’s not us at all. We work quietly with the aim of delivering great results. We will listen respectfully to your needs, plan a search campaign and get to work. We aim to present a small selection of ‘best match’ candidates, objectively. Mindful of your workload we then wait patiently for feedback within an appropriate timeframe. Charity commitment Every time we send a candidate's CV to a recruiting client, we donate £1 to our nominated charity: the Born Free Foundation (registered charity no. 1070906). Born Free protects many species and is devoted to compassionate conservation and animal welfare. You can find a link to us on their corporate partnerships page under ‘who we work with’.
