North East Focus. National Reach.

We’re based in the North East, but, being specialists in digital recruitment, it’s not unusual for us to be searching for talent and placing candidates in Edinburgh, Manchester, Cardiff, Leeds, and even home-based roles!

So if you’re searching for a job or candidates and you’re not in the North East, get in touch – we’d love to help.

We really care

It’s easy for anyone to say, but we are genuinely on a mission to drive the North East Digital Revolution, and the proof is in the pudding!

Our desire to build an active tech community led us to set up Epic Times, our hub for news and events within the creative and digital sector. We also sponsor and attend the annual international Design it, Build it (DIBI) conference as well as a number of monthly meetups like PHPNE, PythonNE and DevOpsNE.

We’re open to sponsoring other meetups around the UK so get in touch if you’d like our help.
