Our Timeline

Archer IT Recruitment is a specialist IT recruitment agency, but we’re more than that too. We’re an expert hand throughout the complete recruitment process. We’re a trusted partner for the people we work with.

Founded in 2007, at Archer we’ve built our business on forging lasting connections with blue-chip employers and IT talent alike. For us, it’s not just about providing a recruitment service, it’s about providing peace of mind in a fast-paced sector.

The employers we partner with like us, because we thoroughly pre-screen for ‘exact fit’ candidates who will make a genuine impact on their business. And our candidates are the first to know about quality IT job opportunities.

Too many agencies try to be all things to all people. But Archer’s laser-focus on the IT sector means our expert consultants have an in-depth knowledge of the market, whether you’re an employer looking to hire new talent or a professional seeking out your next move.

GDPR Statement

GDPR is a new paradigm for data protection rights in the EU. And, in particular rights of Data Subjects to control their own data – what it’s used for, who has it, and why.

The General Data Protection Regulation brings together disparate data protection regimes across the EU. In addition to granted individuals greater control over their data, there are significant penalties for non-compliance and for data breaches.

That’s why Archer IT Recruitment takes its compliance with the GDPR, as well as previous Data Protection legislation, very seriously. We see it as a central part of the service we provide to our clients and to our candidates.

We were ahead of the game early in 2017 when we started to implement our solution, gathering consent from candidates on our database. We informed candidates of their rights as Data Subjects and published our Data Privacy Policy. Since then, we have been taking all steps necessary towards full GDPR compliance.

Benefits of Using a GDPR Compliant Agency

By using Archer IT Recruitment for your IT needs, you ensure that all candidate data you receive from us has been gathered lawfully, safely and with the candidate’s knowledge and permission. Not only does this make for a more transparent, open process, and a better candidate experience, it helps you to avoid the significant penalties that come with non-compliance.

Archer Recruitment only supplies the data that is absolutely necessary for the recruiting process (and that we have permission to share with you). This eases your burden and responsibilities as a Data Controller in your own right, as you will be storing only the data you need to be storing.

    The Future is Bright

    Our team continues to grow – now we can provide coverage across more sectors of the IT jobs market, providing a better service to all.

  • 2017

    Archer celebrates 10 years!

    This year, the Archer team marks 10 years of success. In the recruitment marketplace, where agencies often come and go, we have stayed our course and grown.

  • 2016

    Archer reaches 30 team members and still has that burning ambition to continue to deliver the best roles to our candidates.

  • 2015

    Archer’s new breed. The next generation of talented consultants start moving into leadership and strategic roles within the firm.

  • 2014

    Archer grows and grows. We move to a bigger office with an even better location where we’ve stayed to this day. Our new location is Pearse Street, right opposite the DART Station and by the Silicon Docks. Our office is completely kitted out for recruitment.

  • 2012

    Archer opens an IT Recruitment Company on the sunny Mediterranean Island of Malta. That new market presents a few challenges but our IT-focused approach proves itself again.

  • 2011

    Our decision pays off. Despite challenging times in the marketplace, Archer continues to grow steadily over the years thanks to our strategic IT focus.

  • 2009

    We make one of our most important strategic decisions. Recognising a market need that was going unfulfilled, we decide to focus purely on IT and Project-related recruitment. Our candidates and clients want a deeper, specialised understanding and now we start to build that.

  • 2008

    Archer makes a move. We leave our nest behind for a central location just off Grafton Street. The team grows too, to 8 consultants. Great lunches, great shopping but the buskers? Not all so great!

  • 2007

    Archer opens its doors on Earlsfort Terrace. We had just two partners, an office, a PC, a phone and big ambitions. Even LinkedIn was just getting started. We start to build a team of highly professional and conscientious consultants who want to focus on delivering an outstanding service to candidates.
