Permanent Employment

For those seeking positions in permanent roles, our team of dedicated specialist permanent consultants are on hand to assist candidates at each step of their career. We promise to firstly get to know you as an individual by examining your core skills and, thus, gain a full understanding into your career drivers. From there, we will use this information to proactively search for the ideal role and organisation that you and your career will thrive in.

Contract Employment

For candidates, contract work in the IT sector offers great benefits and opportunities such as flexibility, diversifying your range of competencies and capabilities as well as the possibility to work in varied work environments. Solas is the ideal recruitment partner for candidates looking to work in a contract role as we provide excellent assistance during the search process along with a swift payment system once you are successful in your job application.
At Solas IT we have a proven winning Contractor Care process managed by Patricia Lynch, our Contractor Care Manager, and supported by Joyce Facchini which is based on commitment and a personal, flexible service to our contractors. This has enabled us to foster long term relationships with our contractors which maximises contractor retention – some of whom are working with Solas for more than 5 years.

  • Patricia will handle the process of preparing client and contractor contracts, advising the contractor vis a vis re-location challenges (if applicable), tax and accounting obligations, etc. and provides a hands on approach to ensure the process is smooth and completed in a timely fashion – often within one to two days.
  • Solas Timesheet Portal to record hours/days worked which can then be authorised by Line Manager.
  • Extremely fast contractor payroll process
  • On-going contractor care calls and regular contractor clinics to identify/resolve any issues that may arise from time to time

    Application Support Specialist

    I applied for a role Colleen had advertised on LinkedIn and I couldn’t have been happier with the whole process.  Colleen very quickly replied to me to gather and provide further information and confirm my suitability for the position

    From this point, the wheels were put in motion and the whole procedure progressed extremely quickly. Colleen kept me informed and updated at all times whenever new details emerged right from the first call to the job offer, providing me with excellent advice and assistance, answering any questions I had promptly and was always contactable. The whole process only took a matter of 2 weeks which was fantastic.

    I couldn’t recommend Colleen enough. Throughout my experience, she was always approachable and regardless of how big or small the question a helpful or encouraging answer was always provided. Every effort is made to ensure you are as ready as possible for each interview so it really comes down to how the individual applies this advice.

    Senior .Net Developer review for Solas IT Recruitment

    “Having gone job hunting a couple of times in my career I get a sense from some recruiters of a bit more genuineness and John and the crew at Solas are definitely in this category. No interaction with John ever felt like time wasted and time can be precious when even a couple of agencies are throwing you opportunities. I’ll definitely be giving John a tap on the shoulder should the need arise again in future.
