Rick Deller Perl Recruitment Specialist

Sector: Technology

Recruiter Biography:

I have extensive recruitment experience across Finance, IT and Digital Media, joining Eligo in April 2012 to lead a team of highly talented recruitment consultants specialising in Perl, Python, Ruby, PHP, Java , Microsoft technologies and all things Linux.

I recruit for all levels within Open Source, having placed 1st Line support positions right up to CTO, as well as developers across the board from Junior Developer to Senior Developer - both Web based and more system based. Although I am an all round recruiter I do specialise in and have particular success in working with clients to place those hard to fill roles.

As a leading Open Source Recruitment Specialist with a focus on Perl, I have access to candidates and clients across the globe. This has given me the opportunity to attend multiple sector meet ups. I’m regularly invited to speak at leading Industry Events as a Open Source Recruitment expert and have spoken at  London Perl Workshop, YAPC:EU, Dynamic Language Conference, and FLOSSUK to name a few. This experience allows me to understand in real depth both client and candidate expectations and desires, forming an excellent relationship with both parties.

Fast forward to 2017, and the predicted increased demand for big data professionals, data scientists and data engineers has led to a huge AI skills gap that causes a headache for businesses wanting to bring in specialists to take full advantage of AI’s full capabilities. What is causing the AI skills gap?

How to retain tech talent

NOTICE OF RESIGNATION The three words every hiring manager dreads. If you always manage to retain every single member of staff and this is the first time you’ve heard those three words then you should probably stop reading right now, as I can add no further value for you! However, if you’re with the other 99.9% of us, you will probably be wondering how you can cost-effectively recruit and retain tech talent.
