Chapman Tate Associates has a designated IT Software Development & Consultancy Division led by Steve Brennan who has over 25 years’ experience in recruiting IT professionals. Our IT Software Development and Consultancy Division has a team of experienced Consultants who network daily with the best IT professionals.

The division operates in close knit teams who are each subject matter experts in their fields. In this way we can provide up to date intelligence on the availability of IT professionals with the skills set you are recruiting for and give real guidance on the salaries required to attract the people you need to deliver your software solutions. Our consultants are available to discuss your requirements at anytime.


We provide a consultative service to our clients. We will be completely honest with you and we won’t waste your time.  Any candidate that we forward to you will have been screen interviewed by at least one of our subject matter expert consultants and will have given their permission to submit their CV to your organisation. We will always look to identity a small handful of 3 or 4 candidates that we will shortlist for each role.

By working in partnership with our colleagues in Infrastructure and IT Sales divisions of Chapman Tate we are able to draw on the expertise of genuine subject matter experts in each field to meet the recruitment needs of our clients. Whatever your need, be it for a single key individual or to recruit multiple people across the IT organisation. We have the capacity and expertise to draw on our comprehensive portfolio of services and team of subject matter experts to recruit the people you need.

In the real world some positions are more challenging to fill than others. We therefore have a portfolio of recruitment services that we can draw on to meet the needs of our clients. These include:


This service is the most widely used. Having spoken with you at length to understand the needs of your organisation our subject matter expert consultants will search our exclusive database, several mainstream job boards and social media including LinkedIn to identify the most suitable candidates currently looking to secure a new role that are interested in your position. As detailed above we will interview them to ensure they are committed to your opportunity and happy to be presented for the role. We will also place an advert at our own expense job boards such as Jobsite and LinkedIn to attract new applicants.


For some roles either a very rare skill or the need to secure the very best talent available, you cannot assume the right candidate will actively be seeking a move. In these circumstances we will work with you to identify potential sources of candidate and research who are the the very best people available. Our executive search team will then make a proactive approach presenting your organisation and opportunity to generate an interest in your opportunity. The very best people are usually well rewarded and treated well. To secure their interest requires an expert approach to stimulate the interest in a new challenge and opportunity.


When a vacancy or group of vacancies are more difficult fill or as a client you wish to raise your brand as an employer of choice it may be necessary to place branded advertising in the Press or on selected online or mobile platforms to enable a more complete message to be sent to candidates communicating clearly the values of your organisation and the benefits of the opportunity in order to attract new applicants who are not currently making themselves available on job boards. In addition to identifying new applicants this will also give us intelligence and recommendations that will allow us to identify new candidates to approach using an executive search methodology.

Whatever your need, be it for a single key individual or to recruit multiple people across the IT organisation we have the capacity and expertise to draw on our comprehensive portfolio of services and team of subject matter experts to recruit the people you need.
