Be-IT boosted by 40% increase in business

Scotland’s number one independent IT recruitment specialists Be-IT have posted impressive financial results, with gross profit up by 55% and revenue by 40% over the past twelve months.

The digital transformation resourcing group saw turnover increase to £11.2 million in their fourth full year of trading. 

Be-IT, who invested £100,000 in a new bespoke central Glasgow headquarters in February, are predicting another buoyant year ahead, with revenue to expected to grow by 50% to £17.5 million next year. 

Managing Director Nikola Kelly said: “We celebrate our fifth birthday this month and we are proud to have established ourselves as Scotland’s number one independent IT recruitment firm. 

“Increasing demand for digital, technology and transformation skills across all business sectors has heralded exciting times for us. I’ve worked in technology recruitment for 14 years and it has never been busier. 

“We are ambitious and confident that Be-IT can continue to grow in a vibrant market place.

With offices in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Belfast, Be-IT specialise in recruiting professionals for IT, Digital, Project/Change Management and Leadership jobs. 

Having established a strong client base in Scotland, a management restructure earlier this year saw Nikola Kelly promoted to Managing Director and Gareth Biggerstaff become CEO. 

Be-IT, who place 35-40 IT professionals a month, believe there are significant opportunities in the local marketplace over the next few years which will support continued strong growth. 

Increasing digitalisation in business and public services, cyber protection, Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and Big Data are currently having a big impact on the Scottish and UK market place.

Mr Biggerstaff said: “As a business that was only founded 5 years ago I am so proud of our results for the last year. We have nearly 200 buying clients across the UK and our headcount has increased by 70% in the last year alone.

“Be-IT’s continued strong growth is a reflection not only of the demand within our market place, but of the service that our teams provide to both candidates and clients across the UK. 

“We plan to further enhance our offering over the year ahead and bring other services to the market which in turn it is hoped will fuel further growth of 40-50% in the coming years.”
