IT Recruitment Consultant

12-Month Contract (With option to extend) | Philippine-based | £35,000 Basic Tax-Free | OTE £70,000 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. We exist to 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. 

Cloud Employee was set up by one of the UK’s leading IT Recruitment Consultants who had previously owned several recruitment agencies in the UK. After working and owning companies in three continents, he has earned 20 years of experience 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 for clients of all sizes. 

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. 

Cloud Employee strives 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.

Life in the Philippines

More and more expats are starting to work in the Philippines to enjoy the benefits of the booming economy in the archipelago! Taxis cost less than £3 each way from home to work, and food each week costs only £30 or less (£80 if you eat out every day). On top of this, as an expat, you earn in GBP tax-free.

Life in the Philippines means enjoying the incredible hospitality and warm company of the Filipinos and plus the country’s amazing destinations. You can unwind at great bars and clubs near the office and the accommodation area or you can visit the country’s pristine beaches just a few hours away from Manila—enjoy the good life you won’t experience elsewhere.
