About Liam

Specialising in Python & DevOps Recruitment.

I’m Liam Royden, the Senior Python & DevOps Contract Consultant in Reading, UK. 

I joined Austin Fraser in 2016 after 10 years of working for my first true love, Reading Football Club. My journey in recruitment started within the UX space in London where I connected and placed some incredibly talented creatives into projects they love.

An opportunity arose to take over the Python & DevOps desk here in the Thames Valley and my research highlighted these as areas that could use a bit of my recruitment passion.

Football is my first passion but supporting clients and candidates in their recruitment journey comes a close second. If you're a client looking to hire a Software Engineer, a candidate looking for their next opportunity, or would like to discuss anything Python or DevOps related let’s chat.

Working with Liam

​Liam isn’t a usual recruiter, from the get go you can tell he’s trying to build a relationship and understand what it is you’re looking for. Some recruiters inundate you with as many jobs specs as they can and pressure you to take the first offer. Liam will try to find you the best personality fit at a place that meets your expectations. His honesty and genuineness are the reason why he’s my first call when I need a new contract.

Discover Financial Services

​I came across Liam at the perfect time where we were in need of hiring a Senior Backend Developer for our Just Football app. Liam was extremely responsive, professional and delivered great candidates. It was a smooth process and we hired a candidate less than a week after initiating contact with Liam. I can definitely recommend and I will be continuing to work with him for our recruitment needs.
