In today’s fast-moving world of ICT it can make all the difference to your team, your project, your business. And you. It’s not a simple equation, but after 20 or so years in high performing businesses the team at Retained know the impact it can have.

Our business is based on real connections. Understanding what our clients’ projects need to deliver and helping our candidates find the best fit for their skills. In some cases, our staff have been working with the same clients for over ten years and that’s a testament to our approach. By seeking to understand both sides clearly and fostering long term relationships we connect potential with opportunity.

We work across all areas of ICT to match the right person, at the right time. And it is those long lasting matches that can turn the tide for a project, team and business.
01. Permanent Recruitment

In todays’ high tech world, IT professionals can make all the difference to how you compete and deliver services. We focus on the right match for both business and the candidate, making sure you’ll both get the benefit over the long term.
