Lead developer

A leading Exeter organisation with multisite facilities, award winning technology and a brand new operating system.

The brief 

With a new operating model focused on service, design and development this was a unique opportunity for someone with a high level of senior development skills capable of line managing a team of developers. The success person would play a key role in leading the specialist development team, ensuring the delivery, development, implementation and support for the information systems, applications and platforms to an appropriate level.

The process

Utilising King Recruit’s extensive technical database and network both offline and online, we mapped the market, benchmarked the salary and package on offer and undertook video interviews to aid the speed of process required.

The result

The successful candidate was appointed within a 6 week period ahead of schedule, and successfully headhunted from one of Exeter’s leading technology employers. The organisation offered more in the way of ‘interesting work’ coupled with greater flexibility and benefits – all of which are the main attractions for developers who are in ‘hot demand’ in the market.

King Recruit went on to hire other key individuals across the organisation within technology.
