Here at Insight Recruitment, we’re excited to further grow our UK Tech team as we aim to explore new markets. Steven Branch joins the Insight family in the position of Recruitment Consultant for our React market.

About Steven:

I am a Recruitment Consultant specialising in hiring React developers on both short or long term contracts with businesses across the South of England. I work with Front-end, Full-stack & also Back-end developers, helping them secure roles at some of the largest corporations in the UK. I also work with smaller start-up companies that require developers to help with their business needs.  

Why are you excited to work within this market?

My market is very fast-paced & competitive, which is something I thrive off. The React market is also very up and coming, with companies having a high demand for developers experienced in React. 

What’s your background?

I have a sporty background and was a personal trainer for several years. After Covid, I decided to change my career path and went into the world of recruitment. Over the last year, I have been working in Education Recruitment, working with numerous multi-academy trusts recruiting teachers and support staff across London. 

Why did you join Insight?

My main reason for joining Insight was the clear & structured progression plan from Recruitment Consultant all the way to Senior Director level. I also wanted to join a big team of likeminded professionals who have the same drive for success as I do. 

What does Insight’s purpose of Empowering Sustainable Growth mean to you?

This is something very unique, Insight has a clear understanding of the wellbeing of all staff. Insight’s sustainable growth means providing a healthy working environment with a structured plan in place for all consultants.
