Fast-expanding Burnley technology company Holker IT has proved that four into one will go.

For after adding a new technician via a specialist IT recruitment firm, Holker IT ended up adding four more new starters from the same supplier within a matter of weeks!

“Sourcing talented technicians is imperative, but it can also be time-consuming and unproductive and the help we have received from GK Recruitment has been a godsend,” said Jan Cook, operations director at Holker IT.

“We are growing quickly and our clients expect the very best in service levels, particularly through our renowned helpdesk. We need people who fit the profile of our business and GK Recruitment’s specialism in IT recruitment has now paid off several times over. They understand what we are about and what we are striving to achieve going forward because they listen, understand and manage the brief.

“Their senior recruiter, Earlan Kirwan, took time out to spend a day at our helpdesk to get a proper feel of what we do, and understand the holistic approach we take with our staff and customers. That was very impressive and the results of their efforts are there for all to see.”

Gary Keay, managing director at GK Recruitment, based in Chorley, added:

“This probably counts as our biggest success to date. The speed in which the IT industry moves these days is mind-blowing and progressive companies are always looking to find highly-skilled staff.

“Holker IT is one such company with a sound reputation and a desire to keep on growing. No sooner had we found them a suitable technician than they contacted us again asking for four more! Happily, as specialists in IT recruitment, we were able to oblige and managed to find the right people for them in double-quick time.”
