Rob Fairbrother

Principal Consultant - Software Development

Who I Am:

As manager of the fortice Software Development team, I concentrate on recruiting for Defence Primes, National Security Enterprises, Electrical/Hardware Manufacturers and Commercial Software Houses. I am rapidly establishing myself as an expert recruiter of C language specialists.

What I do:

Having joined the business to help grow the Software and Electronics divisions, I now have a great understanding of what both clients and candidates are searching for. Using an honest and pragmatic approach I am able to identify the unique factors which determine whether a role is suitable and my abilities to tailor these needs for the individual has developed my reputation within this space.

Sitting amongst the Senior Team of the business, I have taken an active role in re-establishing relations with our largest Client; turning the account back into profit through a number of strategic hires. My responsibilities cover the entire recruitment of C Language experts which has allowed me to make significant contributions to the overall earnings of the company. I intend to continue this growth and currently mentor younger team members within this sector.

If you’d like to speak with me about the vacancies I’m currently recruiting for, or if you’re interested in an informal discussion about the marketplace (from a client or candidate perspective), the next step in your career or fortice in general, I’m always happy to help.

Career Highlights:

  • Consistently hit and exceeded performance targets throughout my time with the company.
  • Finished amongst the top three performers for 2015
  • Qualifying for the European Incentive Trip for the second year in a row
