Marc Powell and his business partner set out to build the type of company that they would be happy doing business with. The results were a company built around the key values of honesty, transparency and integrity. They care about solving your hiring challenges, working on your long-term strategy, and being flexible to your needs. They employ a modern approach to recruiting. No power games or tactics, just direct communication and trust. This makes for a proper partnership which means he adds real value to the businesses and candidates he works with.
Their company Techire has made significant investments in training, including copywriting and marketing, so that the benefits are passed on to his partners. The focus is on supporting small and medium sized businesses to build their technical functions, fill key roles and drive growth. Whilst their core deliverables are focussed around technology, they are experts in attracting great talent. So if you’re not looking for someone technical, no problem. They can provide advisory services to help you hire great people directly. This includes a strategy session covering an analysis of your current processes including talent attraction, employer branding, job adverts & descriptions, advertising channels, interview & hiring process and onboarding. Part of the package is also a bespoke advert written by professional copywriters and adverts posted on two major job boards.
Their core services include, Permanent hires, Contract and interim hires, Recruitment process outsourcing and onsite recruitment services, Consulting and advising. And the typical roles filled are: Technical: Software engineering, DevOps, Cloud & Infrastructure, Test & Automation, Machine Learning/ AI, Leadership: Director, Head of, Management, Functional: Project management, Business analysis Executive, and Board level: CxO, Director.
We engaged techire to help us find a number of roles; CTO, product owner and senior business analyst. I had never worked with the retained model before with a recruiter but overall, I feel we got a better deal doing it this way. We got a strong calibre of candidates and techire did a lot of the work we’d have had to do ourselves to make sure this was the case. I’d always work with Marc again for experienced tech hires.
