The Right Talent at the Right Time

The Right Talent at the Right Time

eir evo talent has access to the top tech talent with the ability to fill the most in-demand or niche role. Technical recruitment has always been difficult and matching the right skills to the right position remains a challenge. However, eir evo talent has developed a robust network that can successfully fill these gaps, whatever they may be, as Director of eir evo talent, Sharon O’Reilly explains.

Addressing Market Uncertainty

Despite market uncertainty, eir evo talent, formally known as itContracting saw growth of over 40% last year, largely attributed to the utilities sector. Government initiatives played a significant role, with continued demand for IT skills driven by digital transformation strategies.

Rebranding and Expansion

eir evo talent is one of Ireland’s leading IT recruitment agency, connecting IT professionals with temporary, contract, and permanent roles. Our recent rebranding underscores our capability to source tech professionals for both contract and permanent positions, and beyond IT roles.

Skills in Demand

The most sought-after IT skill sets currently include networking, software development, project management, and IT support. Notably, cyber security specialists are in particularly high demand. We recently attracted a number of highly skilled individuals with specific expertise in IT and Operational Technology (OT) Security within the utilities sector. In fact, we brought in a number of cyber security people from the UK. These are career contractors who will follow a technology regardless of location.

Recruitment Process: Contractors vs. Full-Time Roles

Recruiting permanent staff and contractors involves different processes and expectations. For contractors, we find that the primary concerns are the day rate and project details. They are confident in their skill sets and want to stay at the forefront of emerging technologies.
For permanent positions, people want work-life balance, and hybrid working is now a given. They’re interested in the remuneration package but also want to know about career development and location.

Unique Positioning and Network Access

With over twenty years of experience in IT recruitment and backed by Ireland’s largest telco and tech managed service provider, eir evo talent is uniquely positioned to tap into key talent that isn’t necessarily accessible on the open market. Candidates performing exceptionally in their current role may not be looking for a move, but we can find them through our eir evo group peer network and entice them into new roles.

Candidate and Customer Relationships

We treat the candidate with the same respect we treat the customers, if not more, because they’re key to the whole process. This approach has paid dividends for both eir evo talent and its customers, with word spreading rapidly. The number one access to talent for us is our referrals. If you place one candidate in a role, such as SQL DBA, and they are happy in their new position, they will refer their peers to us.


As Ireland’s leading IT recruitment agency, eir evo talent continues to thrive by leveraging its unparalleled network and industry expertise. Our commitment to both candidates and clients ensures we remain a top choice for recruiting top tech talent in an ever-evolving market.
