Arcam Resources Limited - IT Recruitment Specialists

Core markets

Arcam Resources are experts in the provision of product and technology recruitment, with a proven track record of successfully placing contract and permanent staff.

Product Management

We are specialist recruiters within the Product Management Market and work closely with a growing number of B2B and B2C companies looking for new product talent. Product Management has become a key function as companies look to drive their online presence and sales in an ever-growing and changing market.

In 2019 the UK alone spent over £100 Billion online with companies competing for market share by becoming more product-centric lead, delivering more complex and innovative products, whilst reducing their go-to-market cycles to benefit for this huge growth, across both direct and affiliate channels.

Due to these reasons, we are seeing an increasing demand for product skills and also more product specialism as companies look to get closer to their customers through more use of data science and AI with slicker user experience. Also more efficient delivery cycles with the use of more fluid Agile and Lean approaches.

We are very happy to provide insight to the market, skills availability and salary benchmarks. We also run the London Product Management Group on LinkedIn, which has over 1000 Product Managers/Owners within.

Front End Development

JavaScript and Front End development skills are now in demand more than ever before. User interfaces were traditionally developed using HTML, CSS and JavaScript. But with the boom of web development, enhancement of technology and the ever-increasing improvement and emphasis on the user experience, frameworks such as React, Vue.js and Angular (to name just a few) have become a fundamental part of interface development. Therefore, making JavaScript and Front End Developer roles more specialised and the skillset more sought-after.

Our team of JavaScript and Front End specialist consultants work closely with hiring managers, talent/HR teams and candidates, to truly understand what they are looking for and provide them with the best and most relevant options, for both permanent and contract positions. We understand that one size does not fit all and provide a bespoke and consultative service to our candidates and clients.

Arcam Resources work with numerous organisations across a variety of industries, giving our consultants a broad and in-depth knowledge of the market, resulting in a detailed understanding of JavaScript and Front End jobs and the talent available for those roles.

  • Interview Tips

    Preparation is the key; irrespective of telephone, face to face or video conference – you need to ensure you are fully prepared, which will instil confidence and help you to relax going into the interview.  There are now many available sources to include company website and social media channels to review the company, and if available specific person (s) you are meeting.

    Key points would include;

    For telephone interviews:-
    ✓ Make sure you are somewhere quite, have a good reception and will not be interrupted
    ✓ Always have a printed copy of your CV and the jobspec in front of you
    ✓ The interviewer will certainly base the conversation around the above point
    ✓ Ensure you know your audience, if you are speaking to a technical or HR person
    ✓ In preparation of the above, this should prepare you of their “likely” approach
    ✓ Research the company, technology and industry sector to pre-empt questions such as;
    ✓ “why are you interested in this role?” – “tell me about your related experiences and skills?”

     

    For Face to Face interviews:-
    ✓ Check the journey, know your exact route and give plenty of time for unexpected delays
    ✓ Ensure you confirm the appropriate dress code, so you do not arrive over, or under dressed
    ✓ This could potentially unsettle you, which may then put you at a disadvantage to start
    ✓ Make sure you have a thorough understanding of the interview format – technical test? etc.
    ✓ Also, how long it is likely to be so you are not worried about rushing to other commitments
    ✓ Answer questions accurately and where possible, try to avoid “yes” or “no” answers
    ✓ Always try to relate your replies to specific and related examples you have encountered
    ✓ An interview is also your perfect opportunity to find out if the role and company is for you
    ✓ Ensure you prepare questions with this in mind, this will also help to validate your interest
    ✓ Courtesy costs nothing, always close by thanking the interviewer for their time
