Collins McNicholas Recruitment and HR services Group has signed a new partnership with IT recruitment specialists CompuStaff, based in Galway.
The investment deal will see CompuStaff work closely with Collins McNicholas’ Galway office to service the Western region.
While many agencies cater to the IT market as one of many verticals in their business, Collins McNicholas is one of few agencies to operate in this function with a specialist company through its investment in CompuStaff.
CompuStaff was established by IT recruitment expert Ronan O’Sullivan and business manager Liam Delaney in October 2017, after they recognised the demand for a specialist IT consultancy to service the Western region. Geraldine Flanagan joined the company as a partner in April 2018, due to rapid growth in the market.
The three managing partners have over 60 years’ combined experience in IT recruitment and staffing and have worked with start-up projects, SMEs and large multinational organisations. They have recruited people from graduate level right through to executive placements and have provided staffing solutions to many companies operating in the IT sphere along the Western seaboard.
Ronan O’Sullivan, Co-founder of CompuStaff, said his belief is that the IT recruitment market requires this type of specialist approach in order to satisfy the complexities and idiosyncrasies of the market.
“We have a vibrant and world-class cluster of IT organisations in the West and IT has become a core component of every business over the last 20 years.
“Stiff competition for talent is leading to tech companies approaching CompuStaff to provide IT staffing solutions. Our technology, network and reputation in the market allows us to find the candidates that companies cannot reach themselves.
“We are now delighted to be partnering with Collins McNicholas to service the IT sector in the West together. This new partnership has enabled us to set up our office, grow our team, and fast-track CompuStaff’s expansion,” he concluded.
Michelle Murphy, Director of Collins McNicholas said they are delighted to form a partnership with the talented team at CompuStaff.
“Ronan and his team have a wealth of experience in IT recruitment and their expert knowledge of the industry will be hugely beneficial to helping companies in the Western region recruit top talent.
“We firmly believe that in offering our clients a specialist IT service and brand, coupled with unrivalled experience in the IT domain, we can better meet the needs of the market both for employers and candidates,” he said.
