Our creative resource acquisition model provides clients with an attractive alternative to the traditional staff augmentation model while giving York the opportunity to attract and retain skilled productive IT professionals.
Our flexible engagement model delivers significant efficiencies in the areas of IT contractor resource selection, on-boarding, management, reporting, and transition (including knowledge transfer). All of which allow hiring managers to focus their time on delivering projects; resources to become productive sooner and talented individuals can be brought on faster. Our highly collaborative, blended-team approach with client resources is the backbone to our success.
We believe in a model for utilizing contracted IT resources that will produce improved results, including the following:
- Minimize significant headcount fluctuations
- Insure retention of key resources
- Increase vendor accountability
- Improve forecasting
- Ensure knowledge transfer
Areas of expertise: ERP, IT Security, Applications, Infrastructure, BI/DW, PMO, and QA.

Many organizations in transition find themselves in a situation where short-term and long-term technology needs are unclear. Due to an unexpected CIO vacancy or organizational change, the result may be a void in IT leadership and a potential slowdown in key IT initiatives.
A proper CIO search and selection process could take 6-12 months to complete and promoting from within on an interim basis which could potentially result in the IT leadership being unable to meet the requirements of the business.
At York, our experienced recruiters can conduct a search to find a skilled interim CIO who can quickly step in to keep the IT organization running smoothly, and allow the business the time it needs to hire the right person for the CIO position.
Typical services include:
- Governance, controls, and efficiencies implementation
- Strategic technology planning
- Merger & integration planning
- IT organization assessment
- Application platform planning
- Infrastructure optimization
- IT staff, vendors, contracts, budgets, and IT assets management
