Candidate placed within a recognised financial organisation
"From the outset Datatech seemed different to the 'typical' recruiter with which I had dealt with in the past. Immediately more personable, more specific in role finding and with more knowledge of the industries in OR, stats and analytics. This meant that I felt like they actually cared about what job they were placing me in and not just about the fee they might receive by getting me a job. Not only this but they have since provided help outside of my direct working life by supporting 2 charities (which I was raising money for this year by holding a cake sale), as well as inviting me to networking events such a summer BBQ and the data strategy awards 2013. They have gone above and beyond on numerous occasions and are certainly a company I would recommend to friends and colleagues looking for any data driven career move in the future."

"Whenever I’m looking for top class analysts Datatech are always the recruitment agency I call upon first. Over the last few years Rachel and her team have taken the time to get to know my business and the type of analysts I normally look to recruit into my team. Whenever a new position comes up Datatech will know exactly what I’m looking for and are very quick to send me CV’s of candidates which are spot on in terms of technical capabilities and fit into my team.
I also find Datatech very knowledgeable on the competitive market place which reassures me they are experts in the marketing analysis sector I work in.
Everyone I speak to at Datatech is very approachable, helpful and friendly which makes it a pleasure to work with them.”
Group Account Director - Analytics & Insight at a Media Agency
"Over the last ten years I have found Datatech a pleasure to work with. If I am looking for candidates for a particular role they are very thorough in pre-screening and very honest about the capabilities of each candidate. They only provide me with relevant CVs and this makes my life considerably easier.
Datatech have also been excellent to work with when I have been looking for new opportunities, and are always friendly, always reliable and never pushy. I’m sure my relationship with Datatech will run and run from both perspectives as long as I work in the wonderful world of data.”
Candidate placed with a leading Financial Services organisation
"How can I describe my experience with Roisin and Datatech - it was an emotional journey! One that I could not be more thankful for. I have my dream job!!
Past experience with recruiters led me to be wary. I had been subconsciously aware that candidates could be a commodity to be traded for profit and time allocated to me was based on my value to the recruiter. After my experience with Datatech my perception has completely changed!!
The moment I was first in contact with the Datatech team, I knew they were different. I was quiet nervous about the mammoth task of job hunting. Made so much more difficult by living in Ireland and job hunting in the UK market. But I was instantly put at ease by their obvious in-depth knowledge of the industry, consummate professionalism and their drive to obtain the best outcome both for me and their clients.
After initial contact I had been put forward for several interesting opportunities, which I had interviews from. Datatech displayed the right judgement in pairing a candidate with a suitable position! I was pleasantly surprised at the speed at which the process moved. Roisin and team hit the ground running and they were there every step of the way to ensure I did too!
There was frequent contact between the team and I - I was always in the loop regarding the different stages of the recruitment process. Again, an example of Datatech putting the candidate at the heart of their process. It was the little things, such as keeping me up to date, that made the experience personal!
I was a candidate that was open to any opportunity. When a job that seemed great on paper but after talking to the employer I realised was not quiet what I wanted, the team took this on board and presented me with opportunities that were more suitable. Also, they presented me with opportunities I may not have originally considered but were more suited to my experience and skill set that I realised - this is due to Datatech's insightfulness and also there strong relationship with their clients (having the background information that candidates may not consider).
Firstly, there were telephone interviews - essential when job hunting from a different country! Clients were always aware of my circumstances and that any interviews would require me to travel to the UK. They were happy to work around a travel schedule. It made the process less stressful that employers were aware of this from the outset.
I headed off to the UK, after phone interviews and assessment tests, for 2 interviews over 3 days. I felt exceptionally prepared for both interviews. One which required a pre-prepared presentation for an industry I didn't not have expert knowledge of. Again, the Datatech team supplied me with great support and encouragement during the preparation and for the interview itself. Despite the nerves, I felt confident heading into the interviews thanks to Datatech's prepping and ensuring I had constructive feedback off the back of my phone interviews.
After the second interview I had one job offer and potential interest from the second party. But still Datatech produced two more amazing job opportunities to optimise my time in the UK. The third and final day involved two more interviews. With little prep time I still felt confident, thanks to Datatech's support! They also had my travel route planned for between interviews. Even collecting me at the train station for my last one!
After three hectic days, I arrived back in Ireland and was promptly contact with the news (again always keeping me in the loop!). One concrete job offer and two expressions of interest. I was on a tight deadline to accept the job offer. Roisin was determined for me to be in the best possible position to make an informed decision! To ensure this I had another telephone interview with one of the clients. At this stage I had two job offers and one strong expression of interest (a job offer was not possible straightaway due to the recruitment process of the large organisation). I had 24 hrs to make a decision but Roisin was not finished yet. Through her determination to ensure her candidates had the best possible outcome she was in contact with the third employer and I received a third job offer!
I was in the enviable position of having three amazing job opportunities, which were each unique in different ways. Roisin ensured I was able to talk to the interested parties again, this helped my make a decision on the right role for me.
To say I anguished over the decision is an understatement! Tight timescales and three great positions made it almost impossible to choose. The team were there for support and in no way did they try to influence my decision but were there to discuss any concerns or questions I had, talking through the pros and cons of each position.
It was obvious that Roisin and Datatech were invested in ensuring that I made the right choice for me, which ultimately led to the right choice for their clients. Roisin really understood the emotionally difficult position I was in!
I couldn't be happier in my job and for that I thank Datatech! I would not hesitate to recommend Datatech to anyone, I have already! Datatech would be the first port of call if I need recruitment services in the future. Best recruitment agency I have been in contact with!”
