TM Silver- Your JVM Recruitment Partner

TM Silver was established in 2015 by brothers Tom and Michael Bannister, we are a trusted technology recruitment partner servicing our clients in London.

We set the company up to deliver an ethical recruitment service, a belief we have shared since day one. Focussing on the Java and wider JVM market, we work with our candidates and clients based on values of respect, transparency and trust.

We are a young, growing startup brilliantly positioned to provide an experience that everyone we engage with will not only enjoy, but really benefit from.

We build long lasting relationships with both candidates and clients alike. Nothing makes us happier than referrals and returning clients, a means by which we have been able to significantly grow and cultivate our network. Our aim now is for the network to grow and be a place that can continue to benefit job seekers and employers for the long term.

As well as delivering a leading recruitment service, we are driven by how we make people feel and understand that every candidate and client are unique.

We engage with our network to ensure you can benefit from our extensive experience of recruiting within the JVM technology market.

By using a combination of new and emerging search techniques and traditional networking we can provide an invaluable connection between you and the people that you want to talk to.

To be a part of the recruitment industry in the current climate, where true value is found in how you make people feel, as well as the service you provide, sits perfectly with our values. It’s an exciting time.

We are extremely proud of our record to date and increasing reputation in the industry.

TM Silver were simply outstanding throughout the whole recruitment process that led to my employment. Michael was very personable, understood very quickly what I was looking for and stood above other recruiters whilst I was looking for a new role. Michael managed to turn the recruitment process into a very pleasant experience, always made himself available for a conversation and happy to offer advice. With frequent contact he ensured that I was fully prepared for all interview stages and provided me with all the knowledge needed for me to prepare and go in with confidence. He promptly updated me with the progress of my application at all times and this is something that I have rarely seen with any other agencies.

I really felt well supported throughout and I strongly believe that he is an important asset to TM Silver. Michael will be without a doubt the first person I get in touch with the next time I am looking for a new challenge and my recommendation to anyone else looking to take the next step in their career.
