Thornhvac, a niche recruitment firm based in Leeds, has launched a brand-new tech division, marking the firm’s twentieth year in the engineering industry.

Thornhills will specialise in hiring Javascript developers and will be headed up by experience IT recruiter Liam Wilson.

It will focus on sourcing candidates with experience in frameworks including Node, React, Angular and Vue.

The expansion into tech recruitment follows two decades in the engineering sector, which has seen Thornhvac work closely with clients in the heating, ventilation and air conditioning markets.

James Thornhill, who founded the company with his son Jason, said the move into tech played to the firm’s strengths as a specialist recruiter.

Thornhvac will continue to expand its client portfolio in engineering alongside the launch of the Thornhills brand, which will focus entirely on recruiting Javascript developers.

“It is certainly true that technology is becoming increasingly important in every industry, including engineering, and our objective in expanding into Javascript is to use our experience of operating as a niche practitioner to support businesses in all sectors that need a tailored recruitment service like ours to help them find the developers they need to achieve their growth targets,” said Mr Thornhill.

“Liam has worked in global IT recruitment for the past five years and his knowledge in this market will be invaluable to clients who value a personalised approach to finding the right people for their business.”
