IT Recruitment Account Manager

12-Month Contract (With option to extend) | Philippine-based | £35,000 Basic Tax-Free | OTE £80,000 Tax-Free

Offshoring Software Engineering | Tech Staffing & Recruitment | UK | Australia | Philippines

Cloud Employee is an innovative offshore recruitment and staffing company with offices in the Philippines, London, Sydney, and Sweden. We exist to actively tackle the growing global IT skills shortage by providing tech companies based in Europe, the US, and Australia with full-time software developers who work from our fully managed Philippine offices. Since our launch in 2015, we have rapidly grown to a team of over 150 employees with revenues surpassing £4 million per annum. In 2020, we expect an estimated 100% increase in revenue.

This 2019, we have successfully become one of the world's leading companies for staff retention with a rate of 96%, which is higher than Google's by 9%. 

Cloud Employee was set up by one of the UK's leading IT Recruitment Consultants, Nick Hargreaves, who had previously owned several recruitment agencies in the UK. After working and owning companies in three continents, he pooled 20 years of experience across multiple markets to create Cloud Employee—the world's first model that is a mixture of traditional UK IT recruitment and offshoring. Simultaneously, he has built a world-class support team and methods of outsourcing for clients of all sizes, elevating the company far above other outsourcing service providers.  

Due to the current market conditions, SMEs are struggling to find the right IT developers to expand their business. Cloud Employee services this market, empowering them to scale their business. 

We strive to be at the forefront of innovation and IT offshoring, and this has attracted high-calibre people to join our team, including former high-level Google HQ employees.  

On average, all Cloud Employee Recruitment Agents bill five times more per year than their UK-based counterparts.
