The Perfect Match

Kirby Solway was formed in 2004 with one simple aim: to provide a personable, reputable, ethical recruitment service to both candidates and clients in the IT sector, providing the perfect match, every time.

Sound refreshing? Then read on...

We took a look at the market and the recruiters within it, and it seemed there were some fundamentals being missed. We have worked in IT sales for over 20 years, many at a senior level; we had been on the other side of the fence, dealing with recruiters to either employ our own staff or to find a new opportunity on a personal level.

Experience has taught us that there were few recruiters servicing this market who are completely honest, genuine in their commitment, knowledgeable or true to their word. Calls are often not returned and emails left answered. And it is a struggle to find a recruiter who delivers a personal service, treating candidates as individuals, not numbers on a system.

Six years on we are consistently delivering such a successful service that we are recommended by all that use us.

Our aim is to achieve the perfect match, every time; locating the perfect candidate for every role we recruit for, but also finding the perfect placement for the candidate. Our business is based on the following principles:


One of the keys to our success is our honesty; we are fair and honest with everyone we work with. We do not lie. We will not lie to win new business and we would not lie to a candidate about a role to which they were applying. We are open, ensuring that at all times the information we share and the advice we impart is clear, concise and candid.

Ethical Approach

We are as passionate about your goals as you are. We work in a way that not only complements your business or your recruitment search, but that also works to add value. We take great pride in what we do; we are not driven by greed or self interest, and guarantee to deliver a good service based on strong principles. As a member of the Recruitment & Employment Federation (REC) we are committed to adhering to an agreed code of practice and to providing an excellent service.


We pride ourselves on our knowledge of the IT sector, our connections within the market and our ability to understand the needs of others. Whether you are looking to hire or be hired, we will quickly understand your requirements and start working with you to deliver results.
