Why should you partner with develop?

Back to Hub

You’ve got a choice of one million Recruiters around the world, with more than 40,000 agencies operating the UK alone. How do you go about picking the right partner for you?

Businesses will always come to the table with a list of must-haves – whether it’s a certain level of experience in their sector, particular accreditations or simply working with a recruitment partner that shares their ethos and outlook on the market – but that doesn’t really narrow it down too much. Many agencies will always do their best to make you believe they’re a good fit, and the seemingly impossible choice remains.

So, why develop? We’ll try and keep it short and sweet.

Go specialist

We work in software engineering – that’s it. No frills, no add-ons, no dipping our toes in the water. Everything we do is in software, so we’re fairly confident in saying we know the market like the back of our hand. That means we know the pain points, the challenges, and the common misconceptions that your business is battling against every day.

Our Consultants work solely in their chosen programming language – be it Java, JavaScript, Python, PHP, or the .NET framework – and they learn to code in it too. That means they better understand their candidates and their requirements so that they can place them in the perfect roles. Everybody wins.

There are a lot of generalist Recruiters, particularly within tech, but the difference between placing a Software Engineer and a Sales Manager is vast. We’re of the opinion that if you’re going to do a job, you should do it properly. That’s why we stick to what we know.

One size doesn’t fit all

Sometimes an off-the-shelf recruitment product is all you need, but that isn’t always the case. We offer a few ourselves, from Talent as a Service which is specifically designed for businesses that are scaling quickly, to our premium product Search, but each client and each role is different so there needs to be room for manoeuvre. 

It’s our aim to work in the best way for each of our clients. That’s especially evident when we partner with people to provide Recruitment Process Outsourcing, or RPO. That way, you get a dedicated team of Consultants working exclusively for you, as if you’ve taken on a whole team of specialist Recruiters internally. We get to know you inside out and provide you with a recruitment programme at scale. 

The proof is in the pudding

We can sit here and tell you how great it is to work with us – that’s the easy part for any agency – but our growth over the past few years hasn’t come about by us telling people we’re great. We’ve shown them instead.

Take our partnership with Capita Resourcing, which was recently awarded ISO 44001 accreditation for the second year running. Or with The Keyholding Company, one of the UK’s leading mobile security providers. Or Genesis Global, in the financial sector. McLaren, BBC, Kaplan, Next… the list goes on. From finance to fast cars, media production to menswear, each of these organisations has required vastly different things from us and we’ve delivered, time and time again.

Let’s chat

We won’t keep you any longer, and we’ll save the sales spiel for another time, but there’s plenty more we could tell you about how we do what we do, and why it works. If you need Software Engineers, or might need them in the future, then let’s talk. We firmly believe that no-one does software engineering recruitment quite like we do.
