About Us

Archer Functional Programming Recruitment is a division in Archer IT Recruitment.

Founded in 2019, at Archer Functional Programming we’ve built our business on forging lasting connections with blue-chip employers and IT talent alike.

The companies we partner with like us because we relentlessly access the hidden market for the most suitable candidates who will make a genuine impact on their business. Our candidates are the first to know about quality Rust, Scala and Haskell job opportunities.


Our Timeline

2020 – Bigger and Better

Archer now has over 65 people in the group and a burning desire to grow to 90. The company has a management development programme which has now facilitated the development of 5 consultants into Partnership Level. Archer continues to grow and recruit in search of its next leaders.

2019 – The Future is Bright

Archer continues to grow internationally. We provide specialist IT Recruitment services across Europe. The team is now 60 people and still growing. We also have a new Functional Programming division who recruit right across Europe.

2017 – Archer Celebrates 10 years of success

This year, the Archer team marks 10 years of success. In the recruitment marketplace, where agencies often come and go, we have stayed on our course and grown.


Archer reaches 30 team members and still has that burning ambition to continue to deliver the best roles to our candidates.


Archer continues to develop its training and now has 150 structured training modules. The next generation of talented consultants starts moving into leadership and strategic roles within the firm.


Archer continues to grow. We move to a bigger office with an even better location where we’ve stayed to this day. Our new location is Pearse Street, right opposite the DART station. Our office is 500 m2 and is completely kitted out for recruitment.


Archer opens an IT Recruitment Company on the sunny Mediterranean island of Malta. That new market presents a few challenges but our IT-focused approach and our solid training systems allow us to develop Recruitment Consultant skills to the high standard that we have always aspired to. 


Our decision pays off. Despite challenging times in the marketplace, Archer continues to grow steadily over the years thanks to our strategic IT focus.


We make one of our most important strategic decisions. Recognising a market need that was going unfulfilled, we decide to focus purely on IT and Project-related recruitment. Our candidates and clients want a deeper, specialised understanding.


Archer makes a move. We leave our nest behind for a central location just off Grafton Street. The team grows too, we now have 8 consultants. There are great lunches and shopping but the buskers? Not all of them are great musicians!


Archer opens its doors on Earlsfort Terrace. We had just two partners, an office, a PC, a phone and big ambitions. Even LinkedIn was just getting started. We start to build a team of highly professional and conscientious consultants who want to focus on delivering an outstanding service to candidates and candidates.

Continuous Improvement

Archer Functional Programming Recruitment has developed a best-in-industry internal training programme and everyone partakes in training every week. Part of our DNA is to continuously improve – we can’t be too good. This is reflected in the candidate and client experience.
