Here we have a quick chat with Alex Dubber, Recruitment Consultant who specialises in the PHP developer's market having worked in this area himself.
Can you give a brief overview of your background?
I have always had a strong interest in using computers for more than typing up essays and watching TV shows. The internet gives us access to some of the most exciting marketplaces in the world, along with all the tools and tutoring you need to get started. I realised that there was a large number of businesses in my area that had little to no web presence. Using skills I had learnt in my own time, I managed to create a number of successful websites for local businesses, some bringing in over 100k hits in the first few months, giving my clients the vital online exposure they required.
How does your background help you as a recruiter?
I find I can utilise my knowledge of what goes into a website build to find the best possible candidates for roles I am working. Having hired freelancers in the past, I can quickly qualify a developer and understand their abilities. I am more of a creative type than a techie, however, and I greatly enjoy working with people which prompted my move to IT recruitment.
