IT Recruitment

IT Recruitment is a fast-paced industry that continually adapts to advances in technology. First Base have decades of experience recruiting IT professionals throughout Gloucester, Cheltenham, Stroud and The Forest of Dean.

The bespoke nature of IT recruitment means most clients have a specific brief of what software and experience they need from a candidate. Having a good understanding of IT principles has enabled our team to help with hard to fill, niche IT vacancies.

We recruit for various roles within the IT sector, including but not limited to Developers, Software professionals, Hardware and Support Technicians.

We are continuously working with our clients to fill vacancies such as Software Developers, Service Desk Technicians, Project Managers and Support Engineers.

Our industry experience allows us to have honest conversations around realistic market rates for professionals in the IT sector.
