We identify & engage hard-to-find talent.

Datacenter People came to me with an opportunity that was suited to my experiences and interests. It is rare to receive such an accurate opportunity, they did a great job at analysing my profile and my expectations. The first call was pretty straightforward and I had a good understanding of the role. Despite 2020 being a difficult year, Adam arranged everything so I could have video calls with the manager. After every call, Adam came to me to get my feedback, to find out how it went and to answer my questions. Never did I feel under any pressure and we continued the interview process. At the end, I signed for a new exciting opportunity in the DC sector. I am happy that everything went smoothly and I keep a good memory from this experience.
"If you want to get into the data center industry, Adam is the guy to contact. Whether its in technology or as an engineer or electrician to name a few, Adam will work to find you your dream job. Adam can even open doors, that would normally be closed. Do not hesitate to reach out to Adam."
"Steve is definately the best headhunter I have ever worked with. His rich experience in the data center industry enables him to quickly identify his candidate's strengths. He can also find the shining points of his candidates by a 30 minute conversation which he then bridges to the business needs of his clients. He only asked necessary questions during the interview, briefing and follow up with both candidate & client. Very professional."
"One thing we have enjoyed, and which is actually a breath of fresh air, is Datacenter People understand our industry and the data center market. It makes it so much easier when they understand the type of clients we work with, the environment of working on project sites, the unique/niche skill set these candidates have, and what makes someone successful in this type of work because it is so unique. The candidates they have presented to us so far for a variety of roles have been mainly passive candidates with top notch skill sets."
“We partnered with Datacenter People to undertake a particularly challenging and large scale hire in Hong Kong. DCP showed great knowledge of the Hong Kong data centre market and sourced a number of strong candidates in record timing. This allowed our team to focus on the later stages of recruitment: interviewing and selecting the right candidates who had the best fit with our corporate values and displayed world-class data centre capabilities. My experience working with Datacenter People was extremely positive and I feel they added great value not just to us, but also to our client.”
"We use Datacenter People to find the outstanding talent we need within Romonet. Their truly world-wide capability and absolute intimacy within the datacenter sector means they can find people with not only the right experience, but also the right qualities and fit that we are looking. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking at finding the best talent in the most cost efficient manner."
