Searchability insights:  December 2018


of developers surveyed have stated Python will be one of the most popular programming languages in 2019 due to Data Science and Machine Learning.


of candidates surveyed would leave their current company for the same salary if they were able to work with the latest tech.


of candidates surveyed would consider contracting over a permanent position.

In a market where there are more technical vacancies than skilled candidates it has never been more important to work with a recruiter that is able not only to source those hard to find candidates, but support the entire candidate journey to ensure you secure the best talent.

Searchability have been working with us for the last 18 months and have filled over 95 technical vacancies for us (Software engineers, DevOps Engineers, UX/UI, Product Owners, Tech Leads etc). They have helped us recruit roles with technical skill-sets in a remote location, (Uppingham in rural Rutland). They operate with integrity and transparency, they ensure that we know exactly what is going on during the process with candidates.

I would recommend Searchability from both a permanent and a contract recruitment perspective. We have been in such an immense period of growth in the last 12 months, we have needed talent that can not only hit the ground running from a technical point of view, but who also have a genuine passion for technology and the ambition to progress within our business to help us drive forward in this exciting period of our journey! Searchability set themselves apart by recognising this and this is where their candidates stand head and shoulders above anyone else’s.

They out-perform the other agency on our PSL and in short they get the job done, they are able to ramp up recruitment activity at the drop of a hat (being a digital agency this can happen a lot). There is a lot of dedication here, all of this without a reduction of candidate quality.

MMT Digital Jag Gill, Internal Recruiter

When you decide that you’re ready to explore the next step of your career, our recruiters are on hand to make sure not only we match you with a role for your skillsets but with a company you’ll love working with.

Being a recent graduate I encountered a vast amount of recruiters, some of which were unfortunately dishonest or had no real interest in the clients needs.

One can begin to lose faith in the recruitment system.

Searchability took the time to build a relationship with both myself and my now new employer.

They are great at communicating and a very genuine company. I am now working in a fantastic company with a fantastic team. My faith in the recruitment system has been some what restored. Thanks Searchability!

We won’t waste your time sending candidates that aren’t right for the role – meaning you’ll save time on the interview process and be able to focus on the people with the right fit!

I’ve worked with Searchability with a number of roles over the last few years. Most recently, they helped me to appoint a Senior PHP developer with extensive Laravel experience. I was provided with 5 good candidates, interviewed 3 and now have the ideal candidate in the role. All candidates that I have interviewed are fully briefed on the role, turn up on time, dressed smartly and bring along any prep I’ve asked for. I would recommend Searchability to anybody.
