About Us ¦ Pytec - Software Development Support IT Engineers

About Us

Established in 2000, Pytec is an IT recruitment specialist to the UK market for permanent and contract roles.

Whether you’re looking for a job or looking for staff, you’ll appreciate our honest, straightforward approach and expertise. We put you in the best possible position to make the right decision.

What distinguishes Pytec from other recruiters?

  • Compared with the industry norm (based on numbers of CVs sent out), Pytec is 30% more likely to get candidates an interview. That’s not only good news for candidates, but also for hiring managers who don’t want to waste time on unsuitable applicants
  • We’ve spent over 15 years building a continually updated database of tens of thousands of candidates. It’s not just a list of names and phone numbers, but an unparalleled in-depth record of careers, specialisms, aspirations and preferences. No online CV database or LinkedIn search can match it 
  • We speak to and fully brief every candidate before submitting their CV for a role. We don’t want to waste anyone’s time – candidate or client
  • Every CV includes invaluable insights from the interviewing consultant – including details of the candidate’s location, nationality, availability and salary expectation. Again, it helps save everyone’s time
  • We have public and private sector recruitment experience along with the ability to source candidates with – or eligible for – security clearance up to DV level
  • We’ve been doing this for long enough to know that clients and candidates appreciate our approach – it’s thorough and it gets results

Our Services


Looking for a permanent member of staff? You can benefit from all Pytec’s resourcing skill and consultancy, yet we will only charge you when the successful candidate commences employment. In the unlikely event we are unable to fill your vacancy there will be no charge.

Job searching
If you’re looking for a permanent position, all you need to know is that some of the best employers in the business give us their vacancies to fill.

Fixed Term Contract (FTC)

If you have a vacancy with a defined end date, or a specific project to complete, and you want a candidate to be an employee just for that period or project, we can help you arrange a Fixed Term Contract (FTC). These are ideal for maternity cover, long-term sick leave or sabbaticals. The length of the contract can be extended if circumstances change.

Job searching
A Fixed Term Contract is a handy compromise between contracting and permanent – with no compromise on the quality of vacancies we offer. 


We can source skilled hourly or daily rate contractors for you, depending on your requirements. Available contractors include low-level IT Support and Field Service Engineers, Software Developers, Solution Consultants, Project Managers, Business Analysts, and interim Head of Department and Director-level candidates.

Job Searching
If you’re a contractor with any of the above skillsets, you know where to come. 


Retained by you and exclusive to you, we will carry out executive searches (head-hunting) on your behalf. To give you greater budget control, we divide our fee into three parts: Engagement, Shortlist and Placement.

Job searching
The best candidates get the roles they deserve, and the best recruiters know where to find those candidates. Feel free to register your availability with us, or just wait for our (discreet) call.
