National Staffing and Recruiting Firm AstraWorks Launches IT Recruiting Division
Updated: Aug 3
AstraWorks announces the launch of its IT recruiting division, providing recruiting and staffing services for software companies as well as corporations with in-house IT needs. The practice is led by seasoned talent acquisition professional and account manager Jen Copp, who has more than a decade of experience in the IT recruiting space.
“Despite what you’re seeing in the national headlines, IT continues to be a highly competitive staffing market,” said Copp. “We’re seeing a strong pipeline of candidate talent along with robust job openings. I’m looking forward to helping connect our clients with the best candidates to help grow their businesses with great hires.”
AstraWorks’ IT staffing and recruiting practice is building talent pipelines in the IT sector across the country, supporting growing software businesses as well as banking, insurance, engineering and construction management firms. To date, they have placed IT roles at all levels including Software Developers, Business Analysts, Project/Product Management, Quality Engineers, Solution Architects, Data Analysts, Systems/Network Engineers and Technical Support Specialists.
“Expanding into the IT sector was a natural extension for our business – our existing clients in the power markets are experiencing an increased demand for tech talent as those industries are investing in new technology and business applications, data analytics, cyber security, and automation,” said Josh McDaniel, AstraWorks Partner. “Just as important, Jen has supported the KC business community for 10 years, where her extensive relationships have helped many companies improve their IT teams.”
With more than 10 years in recruiting, Copp has a deep understanding of industry trends including compensation, benefits and culture, offering candidates career guidance and employers efficient recruiting processes and strategies for building effective teams. Copp joined AstraWorks as Recruiting Director in 2021, having helped the firm nearly triple in size in its last three years. She has a bachelor’s degree in management from Missouri State University.
“Jen’s network of top candidates across the country has consistently delivered results for our clients,” said Marty Johnston, AstraWorks Partner. “Our aim in this new division, along with the rest of our company, is to help all our clients celebrate the value of a great hire.”
