A Flexible Approach to Defence and Maritime Recruitment

We work in vertical disciplines which increases networking and specialisation resulting in increased candidate capture for public and civil projects in maritime and defence recruitment. From the moment we connect, you’ll get a dedicated specialist account manager who’ll be your single point of contact through the project and beyond. Our approach is tailored and if it needs to be more specialised, we’ll tailor it again. It’s about understanding your business from the macro to the micro so we can find the best people for you. Tecside’s global but boutique in feel. Which means our talent pool is incredibly diverse and skilled, so you’ll be better positioned than you were before.

We Find Born Explorers and Strategic Thinkers

We have candidates with strong international experience who are masters of adaptation, collaboration and innovation across cultures. Our leadership pipelines are agile and capable. We know what passive candidates are after and what active candidates are after — they’re surprisingly different. As the maritime and defence industry becomes more sustainable, innovative and technologically advanced so do our defence candidates. We have experience in working on large long-term defence projects where our talent team have stayed on in an advisory role long after the placements of candidates.

We have experience in building partnerships with government and commercial industry businesses in maritime and defence.

Our talent pipeline in maritime and defence is ready to work outside of the typical 9-to-5 hours.

We understand the security vetting process for maritime and defence job placements and are familiar with specific clearance level requirements appropriate to employment in the defence and private security industry. We find people who identify with the importance of the mission who have a unique skill set particularly in technology.
