“Tech” is a rather nebulous, indefinable term in recruitment that could mean one very specific thing, lots of little things, or everything.
Because the tech landscape changes, often daily. Which means new roles, desks, and niches on niches are springing up all the time.
Because tech drives our world. It’s responsible for most, if not all, leaps in modern innovation. And companies that routinely push boundaries need the staff to keep on pushing.
Here are not one, not seven, but eleven agencies – currently hiring on Hunted – with a flag planted firmly in the tech market.

Stott and May class themselves as much a tech company as they do a recruitment company. Which is no surprise with the amount of technology they utilise to make their consultants jobs easier – including a custom built AI software that takes the strain out of business development. Maybe this is why they work with some of the most disruptive tech companies out there. Maybe this is why they work such a high percentage of their assignments on a retained basis. And maybe this is why they have recruiters billing £1.5million a year. You can expect offices to feature quirky elements from VR Goggles and cinema screens alongside the bar and table tennis facilities that so many startups offer these days. Other perks include flexible working, lunch clubs and two incentive trips a year.
