Technology – Introduction

Q1 – 2024

Hello, I’m Andy Marshall, a seasoned tech recruiter with over 10 years of experience in the tech industry. Throughout my career, I’ve been employed as a Contract Business Analyst at several Financial Service companies in Edinburgh and been fortunate enough to work on some incredibly innovative digital projects (as well as a tiresome outsourcing gig!). I took the intentional move into recruitment as I’m passionate about people. Iconic have hired me to set up our Tech Division here and support our clients with their tech hiring. I now specialise in connecting top-tier tech talent with leading companies, particularly within Scotland’s tech ecosystem. My expertise spans various tech sectors, including fintech, health tech, and start-ups, where I’ve successfully placed numerous professionals in roles that drive innovation and growth.

A passion of mine is tech start-ups. I love being able to get out to events and meet with founders of companies who have a clear vision for what they’re going to build. Supporting them on that journey and seeing the impact our partnership has to the success of the company really spurs me on.


I’ve been fortunate to attend Glasgow Tech Fest, DIGITEXPO West and Scottish Edge and have my tickets for Turing Fest next month too – please do say hello if you see me out on my travels!


Something I’ve been hearing a lot of through either the events I’m attending, or general client outreach is a bit of a pause on hiring until after the General Election – companies seem to be reluctant to commit until there’s more certainty around the political and economic landscape. This wait-and-see approach is understandable, as businesses are eager to see how new policies might impact the tech sector, funding opportunities, and overall market conditions. Once there’s more clarity post-election, I anticipate a resurgence in hiring activity as companies move forward with their growth plans


I’m passionate about helping both clients and candidates achieve their goals, leveraging my extensive network and deep industry insights to make impactful connections. Whether you’re a company seeking the best tech talent or a professional looking for your next career move, I’m here to provide tailored solutions and support. Let’s connect and explore the opportunities in the Scottish tech market.
