Resource Management

As a consultancy, our reputation is built on the quality of the people we employ.  We understand the niche qualities required in such a demanding industry and pride ourselves on being able to offer expertise in this area.

Selection

We have access to some of the most highly skilled resources in networking as well as contacts within the recruitment industry and we can leverage this to help you create targeted job descriptions and identify suitable candidates.

Screening

Don’t have the time to interview? We can provide an initial screening service where our technical consultants will hold a series of telephone interviews with potential candidates and provide detailed feedback enabling you to make informed decisions.

 

Technical Interviews

Do you need a technical consultant to bolster your interview panel?  We can provide consultants from a variety of technical backgrounds who can be briefed on the requirement and then sit in on your interview to ensure that answers to technical questions are given the level of scrutiny required.

 

Placement

We will listen to your needs and provide an individual that meets your requirements – sometimes you need an expert in ultra-low-latency network design other times you simply need a good all-rounder to assist in the day to day activities of running a network.

Testimonials

  • Trusted Team Player

    Daran is a trusted team player able to run projects autonomously and also in managing Program streams. Capable of interacting at all levels from Engineering up to C-suite management.
    His broad range of experience and skills allow Daran to be an effective problem-solver, get results in difficult situations and tight timeframes and in developing automated/time-saving solutions. Great understanding of risk remediation and regulatory requirement delivery complexities.

    Programme Manager - Service Management CoE

  • Extremely capable IT professional

    I have known Daran for more than 25 years and worked with him at several companies, the most recent being at UBS where he managed the Big Rocks risk remediation programme on behalf of UBS and I managed the programme on behalf of CSC, the then networks provider.
    Daran is an extremely capable IT professional, effective at management and delivery and also very skillful with applications. He delivers under pressure and keeps his cool, focusing on creative outcomes to complex and difficult issues. He has a wide range of skills and capabilities, from strategic leadership, team management and staff development, engineering, programme management and audit risk and governance. I have no hesitation in recommending him to any employer in a senior IT management role.

  • Strong leader with very good client facing skills

    I’ve worked with Daran in his role as Global Head of Data Engineering at Barclays for the last 3 years and even more closely so since becoming involved in project resource allocation. Daran has built a high performing team of engineers based in the UK, Singapore, Sub-Sahara Africa and Lithuania who are involved in and have delivered some of the most high profile projects within Barclays. He is a strong leader with very good client facing skills and brings a wealth of knowledge to his role and that of the wider team. Because of this Daran engenders an open and honest working environment in which his team can thrive and are provided with development opportunities to ensure ongoing professional development for each and every team member. Daran’s knowledge extends into the service management area and because of this he brings a good perspective to the end to end service expected by customers. Daran has provided a high level of mentoring for me throughout my time at Barclays and is someone I see as trusted and whom I go to when requiring advice and guidance.

  • Would not hesitate to work with/for him in the future

    Over the past 3 years Daran has been responsible for building a dynamic global team of hand picked individuals and providing us with strong technical direction as we create an entirely new department at Barclays. I consider Daran to be a good leader, who offers excellent support to his direct reports and consistently provides us with the tools we need to do our jobs, and would not hesitate to work with/for him in the future.

A real asset for any company.

  • First rate in every respect

    I engaged Daran Rowlands' services to revamp a very old and out of date website for me.  Daran worked tirelessly to give me as many options as possible to ensure that the final version was exactly what I needed.  He was patient and proactive and the website has been brought up to date with a huge amount of flair and expertise.
    He has given me ongoing support and perhaps it is only necessary to say that he is first rate in every respect.

    Daran was professional, decisive and partnership oriented and always a pleasure to do business with. I enjoyed working with him as we implemented our overall service providing the European Enterprise Network platform for Merrill Lynch. His fair and focussed style was an asset to ML.

  • Excellent communication and negotiating skills

    During my time at COLT, I had the privilege to work with Daran on a number of strategic projects at ML, that Daran had responsibility for. What impressed me was his professionalism in terms of managing the project requirements, plus excellent communication and negotiating skills. It would be great to work with Daran again.

  • A wealth of experience in the industry

    Daran is an extremely effective infrastructure manager, with a wealth of experience in the industry and broad technical knowledge across many disciplines. Daran is also a strong leader, with proven success at building and developing teams to provide solid operational support and technical engineering functions. Daran is justifiably very well regarded in the industry and I have no hesitation in highly recommending his work.
