Recruitment Systems Professional | Experienced IT Manager

I am an experienced IT manager within the recruitment industry. Working with recruitment company owners to evolve and optimise existing systems to gain a higher return of investment and staff sourcing efficiency. As well as implementing new technologies to streamline operations and speed up the process to hit the main goal of the business... Make Money!

I have assessed the majority of the leading recruitment (CRM) / Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) / Customer Relationship Management solutions, top 5 automated CV parsing tools, trialled numerous job boards & implemented a specialist recruitment sales dashboard reporting system. On top of this I am an IT Manager with a very hands on approach. I design networks, infrastructures and I have been implementing Microsoft/Apple based networks for over 9 years.
