Bandwidth Recruitment, one of the UK’s leading payments recruitment firms, has announced the launch of a new sister company, Bandwidth Associates. The new company will focus on the delivery of individuals and teams of Associates to provide a range of IT services. It will meet this core industry requirement through its established network of trusted technical teams in the electronic payments sector.
Charlie Tillman has been appointed Director of Bandwidth Associates, bringing to the company 12 years’ experience of delivering IT resources to the Cards and Payments Industry. This includes successfully supporting some of the UK’s largest transformation and redevelopment projects for Card Schemes and Payment Service Providers. A specialist in niche technologies, Charlie will also contribute his extensive experience of setting up and running remote teams and developing new major accounts.
Tillman commented: “I’m delighted to be launching Bandwidth Associates and partnering with Andrew and his team at this exciting time. Their ongoing success in the recruitment industry has seen them build an extensive range of expertise and experience from which Cards and Payment companies can really benefit. Bandwidth Associates gives customers access to tried and tested industry professionals and teams.
“By providing associates under flexible and scalable engagement models we aim to bridge the gap between high cost consultancies and unknown independent contractors. On-site or off our professionals successfully and consistently deliver projects and services across the whole software development lifecycle.”
Andrew Pigott, Director of Bandwidth Recruitment, added, “The Associates model perfectly complements the range of existing recruitment services currently provided by Bandwidth Recruitment. It is a natural progression to deploy our network of tried and tested resources to provide professional creative solutions tailored to the industry and specific business needs. Bandwidth Associates will enable us to deliver existing and new customers the invaluable specialist expertise they need in a critical area of their business.”
