Why Headhunt?

By far the biggest factor in a business’s success is the quality and teamwork of the people within it. However, in high growth sectors such as Blockchain, Data Science and IoT the best talent is in high very demand, and that talent is rarely actively looking. As companies are aware how problematic replacing key staff can be they are becoming more forward thinking in the way they look after their teams.

So how does a business access the industries very best talent if it’s not actively looking? Employing market specialist technology headhunters. Using a skilled and credible headhunter will allow you to access the “passive job seekers” i.e. those who will move should a better role or employer become available. A good headhunter should be able to identify this talent and make approaches on your behalf.

Why Edge Tech Disruptive Technology Headhunters?

Edge Tech’s Board has 10 years of senior level recruitment experience recruiting for senior roles across RPA (Robotic Process Automation, IoT (Internet of Things), AI (Artificial Intelligence), Data Science/Machine Learning and Blockchain. This experience gives us the market knowledge and network of contacts to not only undertake the most thorough market mapping possible it gives us the credibility to get an audience with those Senior Candidates.

As the emerging markets continue to grow the number of recruiters looking to access these markets has grown too. This has resulted in a watering down of those recruiters with real market understanding, so it’s become harder to gain the attention of the passive job seekers numb to erroneous approaches of inexperienced recruiters. Our network and market wide credibility over comes this hurdle so we truly can access the very best talent.

How we undertake a headhunt

We take the time to listen and understand your business needs so when we take your role and person brief we can see beyond a job description and see the bigger picture.

We feedback to you our understanding of the brief and list the businesses in your direct and associated sectors that may contain talent capable of fulfilling your needs. Feedback is added to our understanding and we begin out market mapping.

Our client base includes Consultancies, Systems Houses, OEM’s, End Users, employers of Disruptive Technology professionals across the market, so our knowledge of how the sectors businesses are structured is unrivalled.

Interview Process

When we approach the talent identified in the mapping process we promote your role and businesses in the most professional manner aware your potential future employees first contact with you is through us.

We undertake full competency-based face to face interviews on all our headhunts to allow us to recommend with real insight which candidates not only have the skills for your role but will also fit your culture.

For technical roles our experience can save wasted time in the interview process by truly understanding if the candidate skills do match those on the cv.

Throughout the process we give ongoing feedback on how the market it reacting to your role, so if worst case we get repeated objections we can work with you to find a solution to remove the objection.

From shortlist stage through the interview process to job offer we are there to help ensure you succeed in securing your chosen candidate and stay close to the candidate until the day they start work with you.


Working with Will to secure my new role at tado° gmbh was a positive experience from start to finish. Will was sharp, informative and very diligent in explaining the new role and answering many of my questions - a clear sign that Will understood the role, culture and strategy of Munich based tado°. I would have no question in working with Will again from either side of the recuitment profession.

Richard Sephton

Will is an outstanding leader in recruitment and a strategic thinker. We were looking to fill a number of roles and he delivered high quality candidates every time.

Dan Bauer
Founder / Bitsmarter

“Working with Harrison is a joy, he is conscientious, courteous, hard-working and exceptionally knowledgeable in his field. He also sees the wider picture and helps develop the connections between people for their mutual benefit. Harrison is not afraid to try his hand and new things and worked hard on the organisation and preparation to make the first RPA Meetup in London a huge success.”

Rob King
Director / Wzard Innovation

“Harrison was instrumental in helping establish our North American RPA solutions consultant practice in short order and with just a few meetings to establish our requirements. He was able to quickly ascertain our needs and find incredibly talented and qualified candidates. Extremely satisfied with the services he and his company provide!”

Ben Case
Director of Solutions / Thoughtonomy

“I have known Harrison for some years, and he is always looking to tap into talent and find the right people that will suit the right role; in leadership, experience and motivated technical space. It’s down to Harrison’s persistency that I am about to move into a great challenging role with Thomas Cook.”

Graham Lee
RPA Manager / Thomas Cook

“Harrison was fantastic to work with. As a recruiter, he maintained a highly professional demeanor and was always friendly and found me the perfect job instantly! He was quick to understand the kind of role I was looking for, recognising my strengths and putting me forward for exactly the right job. He was always there to help throughout the process. Would highly recommend. Thank you!”

Sruthi Gummadi
Lead Robotic Process Automation Developer / Capita

“Harrison has a deep knowledge of our market and provided an excellent service with good on-going communication and feedback on a regular basis. In a previous life I was a director of a mid-sized staffing company and can tell the good from the bad. Harrison is from the good side and definitely lives up to his surname (before someone added the 'e' on the end of course)!”

Chris Northam
Commercial Director / Autologyx

Will's experience was pivotal in helping me source a Senior Commercial Manager with rich IOT experience into my team. He went the extra mile to understand the vision for the role and came back with a very tight shortlist of high calibre candidates. I would highly recommend his services and he'll be the first person I'll turn to going forward

Richard Sanzeri
Head of Marketing IoT / HomeServe

Ollie was fundamental in me finding my latest role, which is a direct result of his tenacity, persistence and unwillingness to give up.
I felt throughout he had my needs at the forefront of his search and worked closely with me to find a role that matched what I was looking for.
I would not hesitate in working with him again and would certainly recommend him to anyone either looking for a new role or for a new employee.

Chris Norfolk
Channel Sales Director / Oracle

Ollie has been a tremendous help in finding great profiles in IOT space both when I worked at Securitas Direct and now at IPH Brammer

Gatien Gillon
COO / IPH Brammer / Rubix

In a given day, I've received an email message from Ollie through LinkedIn saying that he had one opportunity suited to my profile. Which indeed, he had. With his knowledge of the ERP market and also of his customer environment, he answered all my questions around the opportunity at once, making me comfortable enough to pursue it. A couple of meetings later, offer negotiated and accepted! Would recommend Ollie to all job seekers out there.

Pablo Castagnini
Head of Consultancy / Sapphire systems

Ollie has provided my company with first class service and support in terms of our recruiting requirements. He took the time to understand our brief for the type of candidates we required and only presented top quality people for interview. I would recommend giving Ollie a try if you are looking for a good recruitment firm.

Stephen McGee
Head of Sales / Positive Solutions

It was a pleasure working with Will and he managed to place me in a fantastic role! He went out of his way to understand what type of role I was looking for and managed to find something almost instantly. During the interview process he offered his support, reviewed the presentations and gave valuable feedback. I would highly recommend him!

Sarwar Khan
IoT Commercial Manager

Ollie is one of our most valued recruitment partners. From the beginning he got his head around our business and understood the calibre of people that we look for. Unlike some of his peers, Ollie does not fill my inbox with the CVs of people who only vaguely fit the bill. When he tells me that he has someone interesting for me I know that I should take a look. Having that filter at the front end makes my working life so much easier. On top of all that he is a nice guy and a pleasure to deal with.

Tony Martin
Head of Global HR Operations / Sapphire systems

Working with Will during recent job search was a revelation. He took the time to meet me face to face and really understand my goals. The impact of this was I felt like a customer not just a candidate.

Combining this with his extensive knowledge of the IoT space I had the confidence I was working with a best in class recruiter and recruitment company.

I have no doubt I will work with Will again, and would not hesitate to recommend him if you are recruiting or looking for the next move.
