We Empower Our People

To Empower Your People

Every recruiter has a black book. What makes us different is our people, and the values that underpin our approach.

Tired of recruiters telling you that they ‘bridge the skills gap’ in IT? So are we.

We strip recruitment back to its core elements – adapting the knowledge, experience and passion of our people to the needs of yours. It’s a simple approach but an effective one, ensuring you find that perfect fit for your team and culture.

We take pride in our tenacity, and believe that the best recruiters love what they do. That’s why we empower our team to use their initiative on every assignment, and have taken the time to ensure that our own culture is one that people want to be a part of.

This passion for our work makes us easy to deal with; we always go further to get the job done. Whether we’re working with a Director, Head of Department, or entire HR team, we respect your processes and keep everyone in the loop.

By focusing on people, we aim to bring a more genuine approach to recruitment, and build long-term relationships with the businesses and candidates we support. So why not arrange a coffee with us? We’d love to get to know you.

Lead Recruitment Specialist - Data & Analytics

My passion is building and maintaining relationships. Since joining recruitment back in 2011, I’ve seen how different companies approach this. I started in a medium-sized firm, gaining experience in IT support and infrastructure, before moving into a large organisation where I had the freedom to hone my capacity to cater to clients’ needs.

Over the years, I’ve come to appreciate that different approaches work for different people. Through ON:iT, I wanted to take the best bits of recruitment, while empowering our staff to express themselves and deal genuinely with our clients. I’m responsible for growing and managing the team, so the culture is important to me.

When I’m not meeting clients or in the office, you can find me spending time with family or cheering from the sidelines at sports games. I’m a massive fan of both ice hockey and football; we sponsor players for Manchester Storm and Stockport County, so I try to get to as many matches as I can.

Lead Recruitment Specialist - DevOps & Cloud

My passion is people. Even before my time in recruitment, I always worked in roles that involved helping others. When I joined the sector six years ago, I quickly worked my way up to client-facing roles and was drawn to DevOps & Cloud. It's a fascinating niche that is evolving every day.

I love building relationships with candidates and clients and helping them stay up to date with changes in the tech world. My work means that I get to network with some of the most intelligent people in tech, meaning I keep my knowledge of industry trends up to date and then help to educate others. That's why I joined ON:iT Recruitment: they empower me to empower others with the information and support they need to grow.

When I'm not in the office, you'll either find me cheering from the sidelines at an ice hockey match – I'm a huge Manchester Storm fan – or looking after my growing tribe of guinea pigs!

Lead Recruitment Specialist - Cyber & InfoSec

My passion is business: during my ten years in recruitment, I’ve always loved getting to know the industries and organisations I’ve supported. Having worked in the public sector, oil and gas, property and construction, I was drawn to IT recruitment because the sector’s seemingly limitless potential excited me, especially cyber and information security.

I’ve experienced the various ways in which agencies approach recruitment; for me, the best results come through long-term partnerships, not shortcuts. I also believe that to keep clients happy, and you need to create an environment that people want to work in. Through ON:iT, I wanted to lay down a blueprint for delivering a simple, honest service.

When I’m not at work, I like getting out and about, spending time with Missy my bulldog – although you can often find her at our office, too! – or catching up with friends over a few drinks in town. These days I spend quite a bit of time in the city, but I do love escaping back home to the countryside for a bit of clay pigeon shooting when I can. For my sins, I also like keeping up to date with the ups (and downs) of my team Manchester United.
