The business, which generated turnover of £48 million in its last financial year and is part of Taranata Group, is also recruiting for a principal consultant to join the new unit.

Anna Knight will lead the division, and said: “We are increasingly being asked to support the recruitment of executive level candidates across a range of sectors, so it was natural for us to create a ’business within a business’.”

ScotlandIS chief executive Polly Purvis welcomed the launch, saying the firm continues to “react to market needs by adapting and offering new services… The Scottish technology market continues to grow and create demand, particularly within the senior management area”.
