SearchBI Blog – Our Journey, so far…

Our Journey, so far…

SearchBI was established in 2014 and has two distinct market specialisms; Business Intelligence and Data & Analytics. Supplying professionals such as BI Developers, BI Consultants, Data Scientists and Data Engineers to specialist markets throughout the UK. Recruiting for professionals skilled in QlikView and PowerBI, data visualisation technologies, as well as those experienced in analytical tools such as Python, and cloud solutions like AWS and Azure.

Our success over the last 4+ years, led by our directors Richard Deas and Mark Harbottle, has been impressive. We are driven and focused on finding and placing talented and qualified people within regional and national businesses. These placements include core roles within companies such as Solutions Provider and Elite QlikView Partner, Perfect Image, financial powerhouse Deloitte and household names Amazon, MoneySuperMarket and many more. 

The continuation of our success has allowed the business to grow from 1 standalone office in Newcastle to a second in Leeds. This has led to a growing workforce to cater for Data and Analytics recruitment. This will include further growth for Jamie MacMillan, Senior Manager heading-up the firm’s Data division, which is growing on the back of ongoing client demands in a candidate shy market. Jamie is specialising in roles from Data Analysts to Data Scientists and has seen the new division grow from a handful of clients, to the majority of Cloud and Snowflake solution providers in the Greater London area in under 6 months!

Plans to grow this part of the operation are an integral part of the company’s overall expansion plans. The BI software market also continues to grow following the appointment of Specialist Consultant, Daniel Kremser. With a background in international technical recruitment, Daniel brings considerable expertise and sector understanding to the role. Daniel continues to target the recruitment requirements of software consultancies and resellers alongside BI partners.

Richard and Mark, who have over two decade’s experience in IT and recruitment between them, see the ability to secure significant levels of repeat business with international and national clients. Having an in-depth understanding of the niche IT sector and the specialist technologies that we recruit for, they have all the factors for major future growth.

Demand for our expertise is strong on the back of providing a dedicated service to a sector of the recruitment market for agile and Analytics technologies. With our honest, open approach, we have the expertise that clients demand for their own growth. Not only offering a recruitment solution but a consultative service. We have market specialist business affiliates that can be utilised to validate client requirements, to ensure placing the people that our clients need based on their technical necessities. This is a unique offering and has proven very popular with our clients, especially in the Data Science field which is, for some companies, a grey area given its complex nature.  We are ensuring that we are providing value by making the important investments now that can only strengthen our services.

The future is really exciting for us here at SearchBI; we have the plans and resources in place to achieve even more in the next year. Building on our reputation and delivering the quality service our clients need to secure their own workforce requirements and growth.
