Yorkshire values, national acclaim

Our core values of loyalty, honesty, hard work and value for money are appreciated well beyond God’s own county. More than half of our business is conducted further south and overseas, so it’s no surprise that we’re one of Recruiter Magazine’s HOT 10 IT Recruiters.

Experienced consultants make better hires

In the age of the 23 year-old ‘expert’, the Bridge values seasoned professionals. Our typical consultant has over 10 years IT recruitment know-how. Expert recruits for us make better hires for you. See our Team section for their stories.

Faster payments mean loyal workers

IT Contractors who are worried about being paid are less productive and less reliable. That’s why we’ve developed bespoke tools to become the fastest payers in the business. On the Financials section learn how we make your team more productive, for longer.

Who wants a new account manager every few months?

In an industry with a reputation for revolving door employment, most of our IT recruiters are approaching their second decade with us. Consistency of account management explains the loyalty of our customers, who demand quality with continuity. How about you?

Exclusivity is the stamp of quality

Seven out of eight placements we make are conducted under an exclusive or preferred supply arrangement. Why do so many top employers choose the Bridge as their number one IT recruiter? It’s the people of course. Meet them all on the team section.

"Of all of agencies I have found the Bridge the best to deal with – from the first point of contact in October 2011 right through to today every area has been managed really well: client arrangements, recruiting other contractors, timesheets, pay and contact points.”

Mave Smith, Peoplestuff Programme Director

Comprehensive Coverage

From single appointments to large scale recruitment campaigns, from trainee to CIO, we’ve filled many thousands of IT vacancies. What’s our motivation? It’s having customers tell us that no other recruiter inspires the same level of confidence, nor delivers such consistent results with the highest standards of service. That’s music to our ears.

“The team at The Bridge has really gone the extra mile to deeply understand what we do. More than that, they’ve taken the time to understand our culture. When someone arrives for interview, I know that they’ve been shortlisted for us and not just the skills they may have.   This isn’t a transactional relationship but a partnership. This is why we’ve been working together for years.”

Robin Goldsbro, Head of Service Management, DLA Piper

Financial Stability

The Bridge’s smooth progression to the top of the chart reflects the extra quality and experience of our consultants but is due in equal measure to our sound financial management and strategic planning. We only hire subcontractors in the most rigidly compliant fashion. Long term resource security comes with comprehensive protection from ever-changing legislation.

Faster Payments

Delivering productive resources isn’t all about search and selection. Helping temporary resources feel valued and secure keeps their attention on your priorities. That’s why we typically process timesheets and invoices inside 2 hours. Your resources get paid lightning fast, and they stay focused for the duration of your project.
