2021 – Global Pandemic
Archer weathers the global pandemic unphased – one of the advantages of having founders that have worked through multiple recessions previously, having been prepared to pivot quickly in a changing market. Our customer base grew by nearly 50%. Years of investing in training is paying off.
2020 – Bigger and Better
Archer now has over 65 people in the group and a burning desire to grow to 90. The company has a management development programme that has now facilitated the development of 5 consultants to Partnership Level. Archer continues to grow and recruit in search of its next leaders.
2019 – The Future is Bright
Archer continues to grow in Ireland and internationally. We provide specialist IT Recruitment services across Europe. The team is now 50 people and still growing. We also have a new Functional Programming Division that recruits Europe wide.
2017 – Archer Celebrates 10 years of success
This year, the Archer team marks 10 years of success. In the recruitment marketplace, where agencies often come and go, we have stayed on our course and grown.
Archer reaches 30 team members and still has that burning ambition to continue to deliver the best roles to our candidates. With continued investment in tools and training, the journey to becoming the number 1 in IT recruitment takes another step forward.
Archer continues to develop its training and now has 150 structured training modules. The next generation of talented consultants starts moving into leadership and strategic roles within the firm.
Archer continues to grow. We move to a bigger office with an even better location where we’ve stayed to this day. Our new location is Pearse Street, right opposite the DART station. Our office is refurbished and completely kitted out for recruitment.
Archer opens an IT Recruitment Company on the sunny Mediterranean island of Malta. That new market presents a few challenges but our IT-focused approach and our solid training systems allow us to develop Recruitment Consultant skills to the high standard that we have always aspired to.
Our decision pays off. Despite challenging times in the marketplace, Archer continues to grow a higher profile client base and reputation for outstanding results thanks to our strategic IT focus.
We make one of our most important strategic decisions. Recognising a market need that was going unfulfilled, we decide to focus purely on IT recruitment. Our candidates and clients want a deeper, specialised understanding.
Archer makes a move. We leave our nest behind for a central location just off Grafton Street. The team grows too, we now have 8 consultants. There are great lunches and shopping but the buskers? Not all of them are great musicians!
Archer opens its doors on Earlsfort Terrace. We had just two partners, an office, a PC, a phone and big ambitions. Even LinkedIn was just getting started. We start to build a team of highly professional and conscientious consultants who want to focus on delivering an outstanding service to clients and candidates.
