We're a talent partner to startups and scaleups from all industries, with a consistent theme of tech at their core.
They all share the ambition to grow. Building teams is essential to their success.
That's where we, as a talented startup recruitment agency, come in.
We partner with startups and scaleups who have growth ambitions, but realise that the risk of making bad hires is significant.
Tech is at the core of most of the startups and scaleups we work with, but they also trust us to find them the best talent in areas such as product, sales, marketing and operations.
The feedback from our best relationships is that we’re not a transactional service provider who simply sends CVs. It’s that we're part of their team. A trusted advisor and long-term talent partner, who they can turn to with varied issues on people and teams.
Whether you’re looking for your first hire or to build from 20 to 50 employees, in fintech or femtech, seed / Series A or without funding we’d love to talk about what you need and how we can help.
