Alex Hill - Digitalent

Alex Hill - Principal Consultant - Technology (Australia)

Alex' recruitment career began in 2006 when he obtained a graduate position with Progressive IT, part of the S3 group. This gave him exposure to one of the toughest and most successful recruitment training regimes in the industry. After deciding the world of large recruitment firms wasn't for him, Alex made the move to his first boutique specialist recruitment firm and has never looked back. Since then Alex has honed his skills as a professional, yet approachable and emotionally intelligent consultant who loves to see both his clients and candidates happy.

Alex is also an ex-business owner after he successfully set up and operated a hugely popular cafe in Manchester, which means he understands the importance of hiring the right people from an owners perspective and also the issues that arise if you get hiring wrong.

In 2013 Alex began recruiting for the digital technology markets in Melbourne and Sydney and has had success recruiting for organisations of all sizes and for positions from entry level to CTO. Alex has a genuine interest in the technologies candidates and clients are using and has plans to build his own mobile app one day.

In his spare time he is a frustrated Manchester United fan and proud Dad.
