What does IT even mean… Although it serves a catch all description, in many ways “IT” is an overly vague concept as a means of defining what we do (much like “Financial Services”) and this is because the market has fragmented into distinct sectors, some of which are interlinked where others have little in common, hence the need for a specialist approach.
Bristow Holland are Suffolk’s premium IT recruitment business with the area’s largest and most experienced team of IT recruitment experts who focus purely on the local IT market. Each of our consultants has a minimum of 5-20 years recruitment experience meaning that when our clients engage with us they know that an experienced hand will be looking after their requirements, a hugely important factor in the current marketplace as poor client representation in the market can have very negative effects to company’s ability to attract staff. We organise our consultants by market sector to mirror the delivery model that you will see in other professional business support services such as law or accountancy where a specialist with specific knowledge of your market sector works with you to offer outside expertise and guidance.
For those readers familiar with IT positions our experts operate in the following specialisms of IT, for those who aren’t as familiar this may be enlightening…
Software and Web Development – the engineers and developers who build your business applications and website
Testers – the people responsible for making sure all the websites and applications works as intended
Infrastructure – the engineers who build and install the hardware and operating system environment that all our day to day applications run on
Databases – Those clever sorts responsible for organising all the information used by applications
Software Implementation and Support – A special type of link between the developers and the users making sure that the final products deliver for the business on an ongoing basis
Change and Transformation – Project Managers, Change Managers, Business Analysts and so on, the more business facing side of the IT world, working with clients and users to define what’s needed and manage through the delivery and changes in the business.
We’ve recently moved all our back office and accountancy services to Avanti as part of our drive to improve our systems and processes, as well as fitting in with our ambition to source as much of the products and services we purchase from the local market as part of supporting the business community in Suffolk.
