The IT & Tech division is headed up by Rachel, who has over a decade of experience in IT recruitment across the East Midlands. Rachel recruits for both contract and permanent roles, spanning the entire software development lifecycle, as well as application support, security and infrastructure.

Our core focus is on Nottingham and the East Midlands; however we also have the flexibility to recruit across the UK should we need to.

I believe the IT world has come a long way in the last decade. IT is now the force that drives a lot of core business decisions and as the industry has evolved, so have the roles. BI is now Data Science, software development is now software engineering, and information security is the number one thing that keeps IT Directors up at night!

Over the past couple of years, we have built up a good base of local clients and started making a name for ourselves in the local tech community. We sponsor and attend local tech events, including my recent partnership with DDD East Midlands; and have become a trusted recruitment partner to local blue chips, SME’s and start-ups alike.

I have specialised in contract recruitment locally for the majority of my career, meaning my network of IT contractors across the East Midlands is unmatched and I only work with fully referenced local contractors that you can rely on. With more and more roles coming our way, I can foresee the Distinct IT & Tech team growing significantly over the next few years to keep up with demand!
