I'm looking to recruit somone to takeover development and management of an existing MS Access based system (around 60-100 users), and support/manage upgrade to web-based solution.
Any ideas how I can get candidates? Not sure if allowed to advertise here. Must be strong in creative problem solving, and good sense of business needs. For the job I have a candidate proficiency test I would send out via email, Excel/VBA test.

    After that there are the professional sites (don't know where you are from but in the uk decent ones include totaljobs and topjobs). I used to these when I worked in recruitment and they suited us but I don't know how well they would suit a small business advertising the odd job. You could check their terms....

    Otherwise - there are of course recruitment agencies but be sure to really vet them well - also they aren't likely to make a big effort for a small client. Local press can also be useful if you are looking for someone local but don't have especially high technical requirements (as it sounds you don't).
