TechSource deliver talent via 3 key channels:

  • Contingent (permanent and contract)
  • Retained
  • Search

Utilising search based methodologies across all three channels we have found that most candidates aren’t proactively looking for a new position. 90% of the candidates we work with are passive candidates meaning that we are able to offer a wider range of candidates than other agencies.

Contingent (permanent and contract)

TechSource have built an impressive network and network of contacts of technology professionals that has been growing since 2005, covering software, hardware, system engineers, solution architects, product managers, project/programme managers up to director and VP level, not to mention other more niche positions.

As well as having access to all of the usual platforms for recruitment our key tool is our bespoke network of contacts and candidates as it offers wider access to potential candidates.

Most of the companies that we work with are looking for specialist/hard to find skills this is immensely powerful in helping us fill positions.


TechSource have a partnership approach to recruitment, we take detailed requirements from HR/hiring managers when working on a vacancy to ensure that we get the right candidate first time around, rather than testing the water with CVs first.

Our clients recognise this approach coupled with our network of candidates means that we are able to provide strong shortlists and will often work with us on a retained basis because of this.


A lot of our clients will have specific vacancies that will take time and extra resource to fill, and simply don’t have the skills and resource to attract and assess the right people.

As TechSource use search based recruitment techniques we are able to take this one step further and offer a tailored search of a market or several markets to uncover the best available talent.
