MacLellan Smith is a privately owned specialist provider of project resource for IT and Business Systems projects. We were established in 2013 by Allan Smith and operate from offices in Glasgow and London. We’ve provided experts for critical IT and Business programmes across Europe, South-East Asia, North America and Latin America, often when local providers fail to deliver, and we’re recognised by our customers for the professionalism that resonates through all of our dealings.

MacLellan Smith enables success for our customers by delivering the highest calibre experts that can demonstrate a relevant high-performance track record. We work closely with each customer to understand their high-level business objectives before then understanding the lower level detail that is required. It is through understanding the unique challenges of each customer that we’re able to provide a superior solution and get the right people engaged.

As your people solution partner we manage the build of complete project teams as well as providing for individual project roles. Our care and diligence in the assessment and selection process means that you are only ever talking with the most qualified, relevant professionals when you’re working with us.

Our expertise is focused on the following areas:

1. IT Business Systems (ERP, Finance, CRM)
2. Data
3. Process and Automation

We are different because we are more selective than any other company providing people solutions in our sector. Too many companies spend too much time matching skills, rather than finding people that will genuinely solve a customer’s problems. We focus on the people that create value by providing solutions to critical business problems and this is why our customers rely on MacLellan Smith for their best external project resource.

93% of contractors engaged through MacLellan Smith are extended beyond their initial term. What does this mean to you? It means that because we take the time to understand your business we’re able to provide people that you will recognise as valuable and want to retain. We provide verified, highly specialised Project Consultants that are able to work independently and can demonstrate a track record of successful delivery.

Work for us

Maclellan Smith is different from other recruitment firms. We invest our time in developing relationships with companies that understand the real value of having the very best people delivering their projects.

We are always interested in talking with new talent that can help to build our capabilities. You must have highly refined communication skills and a deep motivation to succeed and win client business as you’ll need to engage with business and IT leaders to understand their issues and objectives.

Our Consultants are involved in the end-to-end delivery so you will need an eye for detail and a willingness to go over and above the call of duty to meet the needs of our clients.

If you have the skills, experience and motivation to succeed and believe you can add value to our business please email Allan Smith, Director, at
