About us

We are specialists, focusing on technology, digital and data recruitment in Scotland. Our business is based on people – our team, our candidates and our clients. From developing our own people to building lasting relationships with employers and candidates, we’ve built our business and our reputation by building partnerships with people.


Since Net Talent was founded in 2010, we have been on a mission to become the number one IT recruitment consultancy in the market. Our journey has been better than anyone could have imagined since then, bringing year on year growth, multiple awards and an enviable list of clients across the UK and beyond. We are inspired by excellence and obsessed about delivering world class service to our partners. Our reputation and partnership approach has led us to become the first port of call for our clients whenever they are thinking about growth, and the go-to agency whenever a candidate is on the lookout for something new. As a result of our remarkable success, we are now looking for an experienced IT recruiter to join our ranks and help us continue our growth. Standing still is not something we are good at!


Why join us

This really is the right role at the right time for someone. Joining Net Talent will be a career defining move for you. Not only will you be made extremely welcome into a great team, but you will have levels of support and opportunities for personal development you just won’t see anywhere else in the market. And you will have a voice. You will have the opportunity to help shape and drive the business, bring new ideas to the board (which will be listened to) and have your say on best practices.


At we foster a culture of success which is based on trust. You will be given an environment to thrive and be fully supported to achieve your goals in the way that suits you best. With that comes a market leading reward structure, and a pathway to a director level role within the company.

We need someone with excellent communication skills, a passion for IT recruitment, and the ability to think outside of the box. You should be able to work in a fast-paced environment and be able to juggle multiple tasks with ease.


The role:

  • As an Associate Director, you will be responsible for helping to grow the business into new areas, and strengthening our existing reputation within the Scottish IT market.
  • Using your strong network and market knowledge to identify possible new opportunities for the business.
  • Working closely with the existing sales team on new business strategies
  • Leading and growing a 360 team of recruiters
  • Hiring for Net Talent Recruiters
  • Creating a consistent sales pipeline and closing new business
  • 360 recruitment activities – you will be hungry to win your own business and build your own desk.
  • Arranging and attending meet ups, events and conferences (virtual – or when safe to do so!)
  • Running training workshops with the team
  • Negotiating fees, working on proposals and tenders
  • Working with the directors to ensure our business is at the forefront of innovation and implementing new ideas and strategies.


The ideal candidate will have:

• At least five years of experience in IT recruitment successfully

• A strong understanding of the IT industry and the ability to keep up with the latest trends

• Excellent communication skills, both verbal and written

• The ability to work in a fast-paced environment and manage multiple tasks

• Excellent problem-solving and organizational skills

• A strong sense of professionalism and attention to detail

• The ability to manage time effectively

• A positive attitude and strong work ethic


This is an excellent opportunity to join a highly successful team and take your career to the next level. You will be rewarded with a competitive salary and benefits package, and the chance to work with some of the most talented IT professionals in the industry.


You will be part of a dynamic, fast-paced environment, with plenty of opportunity to develop and grow your career. You will also have the chance to collaborate with other professionals and learn from some of the best in the business.


If you have the passion, enthusiasm and experience that we are looking for, we would love to hear from you. Please submit your CV and a covering letter for consideration.
