In brief

A rare opportunity to join our fast-growing technology company as a talent acquisition specialist, tasked with identifying, attracting and shortlisting candidates. You will also have the opportunity to work closely with our current internal recruitment team, as well as senior managers within the business.

The role

We are looking for an experienced recruitment professional to help with identifying, attracting, and shortlisting experienced candidates as well as helping with onboarding candidates to ensure that top talent is selected to ensure that Softwire’s mission and strategy are supported.

You will be typically recruiting Delivery Leads/Project Managers, Software Developers, UX/UI Designers, User Researchers, Consultants, and Sales & Marketing personnel. Any prior experience and network working across those areas will be very advantageous, but not essential.

The role will include:

  • Research, identify and attract candidates using all appropriate methods.
  • Monitor applications received to make sure that all candidates are processed correctly and receive appropriate feedback.
  • Assist in the recruitment and selection process by effectively liaising with the candidates and internal teams.
  • Recruiting both contract and permanent candidates across Software Development, Delivery, Design, and Consulting remits.

About Softwire

Softwire is a leading digital software consultancy. We offer services in software engineering, design, innovation, cloud, mobile and data.

Trusted by well-known organisations, including the BBC, David Lloyd Clubs, LNER and The Cabinet Office, Softwire has grown into a business that consistently delivers large, high-profile digital projects for the UK’s leading brands.

But who are we actually?

We’re innovators. We’re passionate problem-solvers in both software engineering and digital design. We are dedicated. And we love what we do.

It all started when our founders Pete, Dan, and Phil realised that there was a better way to do things. A way that delivers results without squeezing the fun out of what we do. A way that is never corporate, but always professional.

When you work with Softwire, you’re not only becoming part of a team with in-depth technical skills and delivery expertise – you’re joining a team filled with passion, guile, and an absolute dedication to producing the best work possible.

Voted in the Sunday Times as one of the Top 100 Companies to Work For (now known as Best Companies), you’ll be working in a thriving environment full of innovation, devotion, and outright electricity.

What we stand for

Here at Softwire, we hold four key values at the core of everything we do:

  • We really care about what we do
    When we say we care, we honestly mean it. Our work is our passion, and everything that comes through our doors is treated with the utmost respect and with the same level of care that we’d treat our own work. Because honestly – we really do care.

  • We trust and are trustworthy
    We’re not micromanagers. We place a level of trust in each member of our team to work their hardest and produce the best they can achieve. This is an innovative but fun place to work – and we trust that you’ll meet our standards.

  • We are kind
    Clients come to us with complex, exciting, but often challenging projects. And we are the friendly face that will help them reach their goals – and be with them for the long run. Our team is open, accepting, and always ready to accept new ideas. Because after all, in a world where being kind is free – why be anything but?

  • We are fun
    When you’re working at the forefront of technology, every day is different. And in this fast-paced environment, we realise that work isn’t always going to be fun. Some days can be stressful, but despite this, we know the importance of enjoying ourselves. Because at the end of the day, we spend a lot of time at work – so we might as well have fun while we’re there.

Experience and qualifications

  • Self-motivated and able to identify candidates and opportunities.
  • At least 2 years recruitment experience either in-house or agency side.
