Case Study

Lexstra had been successfully recruiting on behalf of a £700M PA turnover financial software vendor by virtue of our excellent relationship with the Head of Development. He was then recruited by a leading London based clearing house as IT Director where he inherited several projects which weren’t delivering due to resourcing problems. These issues were compounded by the incumbent recruitment channels not locating resource of the required expertise within the pressing timescales the projects required.
Lexstra was engaged, and over the course of several weeks delivered an entire project team of over twenty freelance consultants, comprising:

  • Java J2EE Developers
  • Solutions Architects
  • Business Analysts
  • Systems Testers

The client was delighted with the speed with which the team was assembled and the quality of the staff provided.
