Why Headhunt?

By far the biggest factor in a business’s success is the quality and teamwork of the people within it. However, in high growth sectors such as Data Science, RPA, Intelligent Automation, AI and Machine Learning the best talent is in very high demand, and that talent is rarely actively looking. As companies are aware how problematic replacing key staff can be they are becoming more forward-thinking in the way they look after their teams.

So how does a business access the industries very best talent if it’s not actively looking? Employing market specialist technology headhunters. Using a skilled and credible headhunter will allow you to access the very best “passive job seekers” i.e. those who will move should a better opportunity, role or employer become available. A good headhunter should be able to identify this talent and make approaches on your behalf successfully.

Why Edge Tech?

Edge Tech’s Board has over 15 years of senior-level recruitment experience recruiting for senior roles across RPA (Robotic Process Automation), Intelligent Automation (Conversational AI, Virtual Agents, Intelligent OCR etc), AI (Artificial Intelligence), Data Science and Machine Learning. This experience gives us the market knowledge and network of contacts to not only undertake the most thorough market mapping possible it gives us the credibility to get an audience with those senior candidates.

As the emerging markets continue to grow the number of recruiters looking to access these markets has grown too. This has resulted in a watering down of those recruiters with real market understanding, so it’s become harder to gain the attention of the passive job seekers numb to erroneous approaches of inexperienced recruiters. Our network and market-wide credibility overcome this hurdle so we truly can access the very best talent.

How we undertake a Headhunt

We take the time to listen and understand your business needs so when we take your role and person brief we can see beyond a job description and see the bigger picture.

We feedback to you our understanding of the brief and list the businesses in your direct and associated sectors that may contain talent capable of fulfilling your needs. Feedback is added to our understanding and we begin our market mapping.

Thorough market mapping is not possible without the market understanding we have gained working on numerous headhunt assignments for roles such as; Head of Operations – Machine Learning software vendor, Director of Sales – RPA vendor, VP & CTO – Data Science business, COO, CEO, CIO and Heads of RPA – Oil and Gas, Banking and a Global Tax and Advisory business, to name a few. Our client base includes Vendors, Consultancies, Systems Houses, OEM’s, End Users, employers of Disruptive Technology professionals across the market, so our knowledge of how the sector’s businesses are structured is unrivalled.

Interview Process

When we approach the talent identified in the mapping process we promote your role and business in the most professional manner, aware that your potential future employees first contact with you is through us.

We undertake full competency-based face to face interviews on all our headhunts to allow us to recommend, with real insight, which candidates not only have the skills for your role but will also fit your culture.

For technical roles, our experience can save wasted time in the interview process by truly understanding if the candidate’s skills do match those on the CV.

Throughout the process, we give ongoing feedback on how the market is reacting to your role, so if worst case we receive repeated objections we can work with you to find a solution to remove the objection.

From shortlisting stage through the interview process to job offer we are there to help ensure you succeed in securing your chosen candidate and stay close to the candidate until the day they start work with you and beyond.


I had the pleasure to get sourced by Will at Edge Tech for my new role as Head of Marketing with EMnify. Throughout the process he was very proactive and responded in a timely fashion to questions. He was also very knowledgeable about EMnify's requirements and their hiring process. Overall I was a very happy customer and can thoroughly recommend Edge Tech's services to anybody seeking a new career move!

Rob King
Director / Wzard Innovation

I have known Edge Tech for a number of years and their expert knowledge of the RPA, Intelligent Automation & AI space is commendable. Edge Tech’s approach is both professional and personable and they always keep in regular contact. Having worked in technology and specifically RPA for a number of years, I have never come across a recruiter with such knowledge of the market and passion for what they do. I couldn’t recommend Edge Tech enough to anyone looking to build and scale their emerging technology teams and also to someone looking for the next step in their career.

Edge Tech are very passionate about what they do which is a key strength and I would highly recommend them to anyone!

Edge Tech certainly knows their market and I have found them helpful and well connected. Both as a hiring manager and candidate. I particularly valued the Meet Up events which they organise, these are hugely successful, enabling people from various sides of the industry to meet and share ideas!
