about us

Koda Staff is a specialist Technology Recruitment provider, focusing on the Development, Digital and Data markets.

The company’s founders have more than 30 years’ industry experience combined. They set up the company with a vision to establish a recruitment partner that could genuinely add value, offering its client an unparalleled level of service in terms of professionalism, efficiency and value for money.

at Koda Staff, your business is in safe hands

our difference

In the mid-2000s when the founders joined the industry, they were thrust in front of clients who had a limited understanding of the technology markets in which they were operating and only a very brief education as to the intricate nature of the recruitment lifecycle. The ethos was very much ‘learn-on-the-job’.

This is a philosophy which remains commonplace in the recruitment industry today. As such the industry can present as many challenges as solutions for hiring companies, with vast swathes of novices claiming to be knowledgeable partners. We pride ourselves on consistently providing excellence in terms of client delivery – a new concept within recruitment.

At Koda Staff, you will only ever be in contact with a genuinely experienced professional who is adaptable to different situations and is capable of delivering the best talent to you within the shortest time frame, at a competitive cost. We believe we can offer you a solution that our competitors simply cannot compete with.

They were quickly able to help me sort out all the complex details around the recruiting process and eased the setting up of establishing myself as an independent freelancer. Highly recommended.

I recently experienced the most professional recruitment process ever. John is pleasant to talk to, honest and to the point and has supported me in every aspect of the big decision I stood before.
