A Manchester-based IT recruiter has secured an exclusive 12-month recruitment contract with top digital agency, Mando, as it makes plans to expand its team in London and Liverpool.

Cathcart Associates is recruiting for a number of exciting, fast-paced digital positions within Mando as the agency enters a period of growth. The recruitment drive comes as Mando opens a brand new HQ in Liverpool and moves its London office to the exclusive Soho Square area.

The exclusive partnership is significant for Cathcart Associates, which opened its Manchester office in 2015. The firm, headquartered in Edinburgh, has specialised in IT recruitment since 2009.

Keen to offer a bespoke, personalised service, Cathcart Associates’ specialist consultants will be spending a significant amount of time on-site at Mando’s Liverpool HQ and in its London office, something not routinely done by many IT recruitment firms.

By doing this, Cathcart Associates can fully understand the recruitment needs of Mando and its consultants can immerse themselves in the company’s culture, helping to ensure the right people are hired for the right roles.

Sam Wason, managing director at Cathcart Associates, said: “This partnership is great news for us as we have worked hard to establish ourselves as a reliable, trustworthy IT recruiter in the north of England since our expansion to the area in 2015.

“Mando is currently one of the UK’s best digital agencies and is at the forefront of innovative technologies like Chatbots and Customer Experience Technology, so it’s incredibly exciting for us to be working so closely with them.”

He continued: “Our plan to have our consultants spend time at the Mando’s offices isn’t hugely common in our industry but we feel that this will be a good way to establish trust, improve communication and integrate our consultants as they become an extension of the Mando team.”

The kind of roles Cathcart Associates will be recruiting for across Mando’s London and Liverpool offices includes back-end developers, front-end developers, digital project managers, account directors and business analysts.

Following their success in recruiting hundreds of skilled IT professionals into exciting roles within Scotland’s burgeoning tech sector, Cathcart Associates chose to open an office in Manchester after recognising the significant growth of the digital industry in the north of England.

Cathcart Associates pride themselves on offering an honest, transparent service and thrives on building and maintaining high quality IT-teams while providing a bespoke, professional service to clients and candidates at all times.
