Finance & IT


Our dedicated IT division headed by Kate Gallagher and Gavin Coleman primarily operates in London, but we also have an expansive network of international contacts, which gives us a foothold in most of the countries in which US firms operate. We are therefore able to cover requirements in any international location. Ryder Reid understands that a good IT service is not only based upon strong technical knowledge, but also a seamless user experience. We meet with all candidates to understand their requirements and to ensure the right ‘cultural fit’ for both parties. A large portion of our candidates are generated through referrals and word of mouth, but we also use social media and traditional job sites to ensure we capture a wide audience. Due to the niche nature of some of the roles we work on, the team are expert head-hunters and have the ability to build networks quickly and effectively. 

Ryder Reid cover roles at all levels of seniority including:

  • 1st / 2nd line Analysts
  • IT Directors
  • IT Trainers
  • Foreign Language IT Specialists
  • Business Analysts
  • IT Managers
  • IT Juniors
