Bringing in the best in the Software Product Space

by a team who knows how to find them

The best talent aren’t applying for jobs, nor are they waiting on a portal, hoping to be contacted for their next job.  Our team is hyper-focused on recruiting passive candidates and building networks in your space.  We do this on a daily basis.  We know where these candidates are, what companies they may be working at and how to introduce them to you in a high-quality way.

Struggling to find the right talent for your product team or business?

Hiring the best people can only happen if the right people are in your talent pool.  To get the right people in your talent pool takes a lot of effort.  You wont fill that talent pool with the best people by running an advert.  Very often the best people aren’t looking for a new job, aren’t applying when you advertise, or might not even have heard of you.  Very often, the right person doesn’t have the right information on their profile and doesn’t come up on a quick keywords search.

Hello, I’m Leigh

the heart and mind behind Progressive Edge Consulting

Leigh Progressive Edge

With many years of experience in the tech recruitment industry, my journey has been driven by my passion for connecting people.  Connecting the right people more often than not has resulted in me being able to build my own business and team, hire my own people, which helps me to truly understand how important the right hires are to your business.

In software product companies, I’ve seen first-hand the transformative impact of matching the right individual with the right team. It’s not just about filling a vacancy with who’s applied for your role. It’s about going out and finding the person who fits your organisation and technical landscape.

What sets us apart is not just our specialised expertise but our approach to tech recruitment. We’re not here to transact; we’re here to build lasting partnerships. Our commitment is to understand your vision, challenges, and goals as deeply as we understand the sectors we serve. This dedication has enabled us to not just meet, but exceed, our clients’ expectations — time and again.

At Progressive Edge, we understand that every organisation’s recruitment needs are as unique as the candidates themselves.

This approach allows us to allocate more time and resources to understanding your specific needs, and to hunting a higher calibre of candidates.  Our professionals, being career recruiters prefer this approach as we are able to close off our roles knowing we searched as far as could to draw out the best people for the position we took on.
