    The Challenge

    We needed to source an SC cleared, Software Engineer able to hit the ground running and deliver key body of work for a major client. Traditional recruitment providers were unable to supply the quality required.

    The Solution

    We engaged our vast and detailed network of specialist software engineers and discussed the opportunity with those either currently or previously SC cleared to ascertain their suitability from a security standpoint before taking a deeper dive into their skill base and suitability for the role from a technical standpoint. 


    Murray McIntosh were able to provide a range of SC cleared candidates who were well suited technically to the role in a very short time from the brief being given. We had interviewed three candidates and offered one within a few days. They were also able to find a replacement candidate, within 24hrs, for another role in which we had lost a candidate to a different organisation.
