Even in a 'candidate short' market, turning around briefs to offers is still in good time, and you get maximum of three people that hit the mark, and you always make an offer because you're excited to!

No more wasted time. You get on with your day job.

Hair pulling frustration

You shouldn't feel frustrated with the hiring process

Running without delivering

Or fearful the recruiter will disappear without delivering

Balancing act

Hiring should be cost and time-efficient

Full services

Our services give you that dependability

Your time’s precious. So we promise not to waste it by sending you candidates who aren’t up to the task. Instead, we listen to your needs and only ever recommend talent with the skills you want.

So you can fill roles quickly and get on with business.

Oh and I hear you asking, how many people have left in the first 12 months - ONE. Just the one in 2.5 years that I've been running on my own.

Our services

01

Contract Recruitment

Providing temporary contractors to fill a stop-gap for a project or until you make a permanent hire.

02

Permanent Recruitment

Providing an employee that fits your wants and needs (providing they’re realistic – and we’ll always tell you if they’re not).

03

Tailored candidate reports

Unsure about a hire? We’ll interview candidates and give you a full breakdown of their strengths and weaknesses, and a report on how suitable they’d be in the first 6 months of a new role.

What we do differently

Video video video

You’ve always worked with recruiters the same way: they find some suitable candidates, and send you a load of CVs so you can find the best people for the job.

But what if you could attract talent that was even better suited to your business? We do this with VIDEO JOB SPECS, filming and editing a short Q&A with you to give candidates a snapshot of what you and your business are really like.

We also provide pre-interview video clips, so you can find out a little more about each candidate before you make a decision on them - cultural fit and personality are just as important as skills.

Networks and some Boolean strings!

We don’t just use Linkedin to find candidates - we know how to ENGAGE with candidates on there too, building those all-important relationships with the best talent.

We still use job boards (but only really to advertise), but we go a little bit deeper than most, with Boolean searching and X Ray Google searching techniques, among others. All designed to help source the right talent for you.

Lots of talented people are also referred to through the network of candidates we’ve placed over the years – thanks to the personalised service we offer.

Integrity & resilience

With a thousand and one things on your to-do list, you’re busy enough without finding the time to speak to recruitment agencies every day.

So rather than wrap you up in cotton wool, we’re as honest as can be to get you the best candidate for the job in the quickest time possible. Salary too low? Job specification too broad? We’ll tell you straight up.

Starting a search that isn’t going to get good results is a waste of everyone’s time. So instead, we’ll work with you on your job spec, manage expectations and help solve your problems, without taking up too much of your time.

You can expect us to:

Attend interviews

We attend interviews to make sure you’re being compliant. The SMEs we work with really appreciate this – we’re here to protect your brand!

Running dialogue

We'll tell you if something’s not quite right – we aren’t afraid of being honest! Our C-Suite Execs prefer being told directly and quickly. Because who has time to faff?

Train

We train you on the do’s and don’ts of interviewing.

Keep to timings

We'll give you a timeframe of when you’ll receive CVs.

The 6-step process

We take care of everything.

01

Briefing call or visit with your key decision makers. Video/Face to face.

02

Advertising your role (nope, not the job spec). Producing a video job advert.

03

Checking your ad responses daily and responding to all applicants by email or phone.

04

Searching the market to find top talent at other companies. Sending video messages to potential candidates.

05

Updating you weekly on the recruitment, where I am with things.

06

Shortlisting the best candidates for you to review and invite to interview.

What does your next move look like? Get in touch!

Jobs are filled quickly and the turnaround can be the same day!

We don't have a job board, which you'd potentially spend hours pouring over with little results!

So let us match you to the jobs, after all, we should know what it is you want to do, right?

We're listening...

Do you ever feel like recruiters see your next hire as another box-ticking exercise? Or that they don’t really get your frustrations when it comes to filling a role with the right person?

Having been part of in-house HR and Recruitment teams, our founder Sharn knows all too well how important it is for businesses like yours to work with the right external recruitment partner. One that can help you build and stay successful.

That’s why she launched TechWaves Recruitment. We’re recruiters who listen to you, understand you and know how precious your time is. So you can do what you do best and leave us to find the right people.

Just like we’ve been doing for over 12 years, running large agency campaigns for companies across the Engineering sector and have love working with SME's specifically.

We have big agency experience, working as a small business, with that extra care being provided, every, time!

Anything but headhunters

Every single job listing should be headhunted for, so using this term to separate more senior roles is a sneaky way of charging higher rates – we don’t believe in it.

In our experience, it’s impossible to act as an ambassador for your business without treating every role with the same care, attention and honesty.

So our process is completely transparent – you know what to expect from start to finish, and you can trust us to help you build your teams.

“Truly professional and efficient”

I had a very recent opportunity to interact with Sharn regarding my application for a job. I have found Sharn to be very cheerful and positive and at the same time truly professional and efficient. I would highly recommend Sharn as a Recruiter and can confidently say that she can get the job done effectively.

I have been pleasantly surprised with the level of attention, service and professionalism Sharn afforded me. Sharn demonstrated a strong understanding of both the client and prospects needs; resulting in the perfect match for us both. Sharn kept in touch, but not excessively.

I look forward to working with her in the future and recommend interims to contact Sharn.

“Exceptionally professional with great attention to detail”

Personally I do find job hunting process quite stressful which makes people like Sharn more valuable. She is an exceptional professional with great attention to detail who listen and always try to understand candidate’s needs.

She is a safe pair of hands who knows recruitment is a lot more than a sales process; it is about people (company & candidate) finding the perfect match for both sides. I will definitely recommend her and very happy to be a client once again.

“Vacancies have diminished with quality candidates being recruited”

I’m always sceptical when changing something that is working well. I was expecting it to be impacted. I have to say though that has not been the case.

Good quality candidates. Good filtering out of the dross. In short my list of vacancies has diminished with quality candidates being recruited. In summary Sharn is an excellent recruitment consultant whom I have no hesitation in recommending to anyone, and with whom I will work again.
