IT Recruitment Liverpool
Liverpool’s location at the mouth of the River Mersey put it in the perfect position for the success it has enjoyed throughout history. Liverpool has grown considerably since the first Roman settlement in 1190 through the industrial revolution. For IT recruitment in Liverpool, this past success provides the perfect foundation to build a thriving tech community.
Challenges of Recruiting IT, Digital, and Marketing Professionals In Liverpool
Recruiting IT, digital, and marketing professionals in Liverpool presents some unique challenges compared to other UK cities
Liverpool has a much smaller tech talent pool than larger cities like London or Manchester. The resulting local tech skills shortage makes it harder for Liverpool employers to find candidates with the necessary skills and experience.
Liverpool faces stiff competition from nearby Manchester and Leeds, which are also IT, Digital and Marketing hubs. This competition drives up salaries for Liverpool hirers and makes it harder to attract top candidates
Liverpool has a growing and vibrant digital and creative sector, but it has a different level of reputation than Manchester or London. Liverpool’s emerging credibility could make it harder for employers to attract top candidates seeking a specific work environment or career path.
Liverpool has a different standard of technological infrastructure and resources than other cities, which may not be as appealing to candidates who require a specific level of support or access to tools and technologies.
Liverpool’s location may be less convenient for candidates seeking easy access to other parts of the UK or Europe. Therefore it may be harder for Liverpool to attract talent than more central cities such as London, Manchester or Birmingham, which have access to major transportation hubs.

Branding and Marketing
Smaller companies that have yet to build a strong brand presence often find reaching their ideal candidates challenging. Piggybacking off our marketing efforts can help smaller businesses reach a wider audience. Simillarly, some of our more high-profile clients prefer to hide behind our branding as it eliminates the majority of irrelevant applications they would otherwise receive.

We provide ongoing support and guidance to employers throughout the recruitment process, including expert insights on market trends, salary benchmarking, and hiring best practices. Our support helps employers to make informed decisions and secure top tech talent.
Our team have specialised in recruiting for the technology, digital and marketing sectors in the north-west since 2004. Since then, our reputation has grown, and we are now proud to be one of the most trusted digital recruitment agencies in the UK.
