IT Staffing for Today’s Business Needs

So what – if anything – makes our team at Eaton different?

There are only so many “bells and whistles” you can put on a staffing & recruitment service.  Whether the firm is a sole-proprietor or a global player we all do the same thing – help connect people looking for opportunities with employers seeking talent.

So it comes down to the caliber, experience and integrity of the firm.

We are a small team of highly experienced recruiters with experience internationally, in big and small firms, who focus in key markets.  We are a division of Eaton & Associates, a leading San Francisco Bay Area IT Services firm, founded in 1989 and serving key municipal, commercial, educational and non-profit organizations, as well as a top-tier partner to Microsoft, Cisco, Meraki, HP, VMware and EMC, among others.

David came to the USA from England in the early-90’s (joint USA/UK Citizen) and has worked in a number of recruitment and sales management roles in that period.  He also has senior operations experience with two leading IT Solutions Providers which allow him particular insight into the specific requirements of technology professionals in that sector.

He has placed over 2,000 IT professionals in new roles. Manages a team but very hands-on in the recruitment process.

David is a keen aviator, and loves to connect firms with top-talent!

“…This is a strange business…nobody ever goes through school saying  ‘I’m going to be a Recruiter!’.

But there is a very great thrill and delight in facilitating a match between both top-tier employers and candidates.  The role requires a huge amount of empathy, business inside knowledge (who’s rising or diving) and, of course, the all important street smarts…”
