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
