Working in technology recruitment

With the ability to earn in excess of £100,000 per month, technology recruitment is very rewarding. Yes, it can be tough and stressful with long hours; however, the right group of people can thrive in such an environment. A successful and growing recruitment company can offer generous financial incentives, the opportunity for travel and room for professional development.

At Dot Net Resourcing, we believe in supporting and rewarding performance. We have a number of incentives and reward schemes to realise the ambitions of our employees, including:


  • Competitive basic salary based on experience
  • Increased basic salary for managing consultants
  • Uncapped on-target individual commission scheme paying 20% of the full GP


  • Regular training and discussion forums, including a comprehensive self-study library to support and accelerate your path to becoming a 'super biller'
  • Regular company-funded events and nights out
  • Incentives to win daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly rewards
  • Monthly performance reviews and daily one-to-one meetings
  • Weekly operational statistics to help consultants in identifying their strengths and weaknesses
  • Bespoke recruitment software that is tailored for our specialist technical market simplifies patch running
  • Brand names within contract and permanent specialities provide consultants with the opportunity to run business-within-business ventures
  • Exposure to the full hierarchy- from junior developers to CEOs of multimillion pound companies
  • All expenses paid international travel and experiences (consultants are expected to visit their clients at least 4 times per year)


Niche technology recruitment is one of the most stable industries. As long as technology professionals are available and in demand, successful recruitment agencies will grow. This is particularly true for headhunters working in candidate-driven markets. While official certifications and years of experience are paramount in other careers, recruitment companies focus on performance. This means there are fewer barriers. Making valuable and lasting placements is the only true requirement.

Financial rewards

With exceptional recruiters in the UK earning up to 6 figure salaries, the market can be fiercely competitive. At Dot Net Resourcing, our focus on the niche Microsoft .NET, SharePoint and ERP technology market means our top 5 billers will earn anything from £60K-£100K. It is not uncommon for graduates to use recruitment as a fast-track mechanism to move into other commercial arenas.

James Caan and Robert Stiff are just two entrepreneurs who started out in recruitment. There is a direct relationship between the work that a recruitment consultant puts in and their annual income.

Transferrable skills

Dot Net Resourcing is committed to training, supporting and taking an active interest in our employees. Our training manager teaches over 40 different master classes. Everything that you learn in our company will provide you with valuable skills that can be transferred to any other recruitment company in the world. After 6 months of recruitment experience, you can expect to be headhunted on a weekly basis by other agencies, especially if you have built up a reputation within a specific market.
