Major client win sees Scottish IT recruiter strengthen roots in north of England


Cathcart Associates has bolstered its recruitment offering in the north of England after scooping an exclusive 12-month contract with Mando, one of the UK’s best digital agencies.

Headquartered in Edinburgh, Cathcart Associates will be recruiting for a number of exciting, fast-paced digital positions within Mando’s London and Liverpool teams, as the agency enters a period of growth.

The exclusive partnership is significant for the Scottish recruitment consultant as it continues to establish itself as the leading independent IT recruiter in the north of England following the opening of its Manchester office in 2015.

Determined to offer a bespoke, personalised service, Cathcart Associates’ specialist consultants will be spending a significant amount of time on-site at Mando’s brand new Liverpool HQ and in its new London office, something not routinely done by many IT recruitment firms.

In doing so, Cathcart Associates can fully understand the recruitment needs of Mando and can immerse itself in the company’s culture, helping to ensure the right people are hired for the right roles.

Gordon Kaye, managing director at Cathcart Associates, said: “This partnership is great news for us as we have worked hard to establish ourselves as a reliable, trustworthy IT recruiter in the north of England, as well as in Scotland.

“Mando is currently one of the UK’s best digital agencies and is at the forefront of innovative technologies like Chatbots and Customer Experience Technology, so it’s incredibly exciting for us to be working so closely with them.”

He continued: “Our plan to have our consultants spend time at the Mando’s offices isn’t hugely common in our industry but we feel that this will be a good opportunity to establish trust, improve communication and integrate our consultants as they become an extension of the Mando team.”


Mando’s recruitment drive comes as the agency opens a brand new HQ in Liverpool and moves its London office to the exclusive Soho Square area.

The kind of roles Cathcart Associates will be recruiting for across Mando’s London and Liverpool offices includes back-end developers, front-end developers, digital project managers, account directors and business analysts.

Following its success in recruiting hundreds of skilled IT professionals into exciting roles within Scotland’s burgeoning tech sector, Cathcart Associates chose to open an office in Manchester after recognising the significant growth of the digital industry in the north of England.

Cathcart Associates prides itself on offering an honest, transparent service and thrives on building and maintaining high quality IT-teams while providing a bespoke, professional service to clients and candidates at all times.
