Belfast is a recognised hub for software development, attracting global players in the tech, finance and consultancy sectors as well as fostering a thriving start-up scene. NI produces amazing technology talent and opportunities now exist locally to develop fully fledged, international tech careers while being based right here.

We established Distil because we think there is a gap in the local IT recruitment sector for a company who can meet the needs of the new candidate centred market. With so many years in the industry across well-established recruitment businesses and as in house recruiters, we’ve learned from the best in the business and taken lessons from everything we’ve seen, good and bad.

Distil represents a new approach to recruitment – a range of services as helpful to the IT professional as they are to client companies. A brand that puts clarity, honesty and the Candidate Experience at the heart of its approach.

From County Down, but with stints living abroad in the USA and France, Patrick located back to NI after gaining BA (Hons) from Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen. A keen rugby player, Patrick has many connections across NI and further afield and enjoys the ‘people focus’ of the recruitment industry. Patrick worked in an internal resourcing role for a local software company where he developed skills in online searching and learned the importance of social media in the recruitment process. He is now enjoying employing these skills to assist a broader base of clients in their search for IT talent.
