About Catch

Catch

About

Catch Resource Management was established in 1999 by a senior management team with extensive experience and professionalism gained from both recruitment and industry backgrounds. Over 15 years later and our reputation in the market is testament to how we apply that experience to successfully match clients and candidates together. We guide and support candidates to find the best jobs and help our clients maximise the ROI for their enterprise software applications.


Our Approach

How We Do Things

Our Approach

Catch’s ongoing vision is to use years of expertise to transform the IT recruitment industry, helping to break the cycle of inefficient recruitment processes leading to the ‘cut and run’ attitude still adopted by some recruitment agencies.

Our whole team is focused on delivering a more skillful and often bespoke approach to this specialised area of resourcing. We believe that forging closer, longer-term relationships with both clients and candidates is more productive and rewarding for everyone.

Our Way

The Catch Way

At Catch, we use tried and tested methods to build full and detailed pictures of both our clients’ and candidates’ needs. We listen to your requirements, motivations and challenges and consider how we can assist you to reach the next step – or two.

We draw from our extensive knowledge of the industry-focused markets we operate in to allow us to guide and advise on the best approach for you as a candidate or for your organisation.

Your success is our goal and we will support you with honesty and integrity in both the short term and long term. If we are best placed to help with your requirements, we will put 100% effort into delivering on our promise for you. Equally, if we feel we are not best suited to help then, we are not afraid to explain this and the reasons why.

We provide a targeted and intelligent approach to recruitment and our team is focused on getting it right, every time.
