The Support Team

At Technical Recruitment Solutions, our support team is comprised of supporting consultants, candidate managers and marketing personnel.

  • Our supporting consultants and candidate managers work in a similar capacity to our recruitment consultants and support them in carrying out their day-to-day tasks. They are integral members of their respective teams, generating value in a number of areas.
  • Our marketing coordinator rounds out our support team. He works mainly with digital media and communications whilst also supporting our administration staff and other consultants where necessary.

Our support team has been growing steadily and is expected to continue to do so! Watch this space!
