Case Study:


A fast growth tech start-up are working towards their series C funding round and a key objective as Swedish based company if to establish a sales team in the UK consisting of 8 Sales Development Representatives (SDR’s), to be managed by an existing employee. Their head office is in Sweden and they are unsure how to best manage the process.


What We Did:

Having gained an understanding of the business and the role of the SDR within it, we recommended running a bespoke assessment day. This was the most efficient way for the client to assess and recruit the required number of candidates with minimum business disruption, especially considering the key decision makers were travelling from Sweden to conduct the interviews. Following a number of discussions with relevant stake holders we were able to determine both the candidate brief and set a date for the assessment, to be help in two weeks time from the
date of engagement.


Within Certus Graduate we set up a delivery team, led by an Account Manager, who through discussion with the client determined and agreed the most suitable tasks and exercises to be included on the day, designed to highlight the particular skills and behaviors that were essential to the client. Having finalized these details, we agreed a minimum number of suitable attendees to ensure expectations were clear from the outset.


Having finalized these details, the client was able to return to focusing on their business with no further involvement required until the assessment day.


On the day itself, all client personnel arrived early for a thorough recap of what the day would involve, timelines and assessment criteria. The client was introduced and given a 20-30 minute slot to present their business to the attendees, discussing the role and its importance within the company, sharing the company’s Vision and any other relevant details before starting the
assessment activities.



The day was a huge success with the client hiring all 8 SDR’s and extending a further 2 offers. All candidates have gone on to pass probation and are enjoying their role within the business.

  • ​I had applied for a role via Certus on a Monday and by Tuesday I was already in their offices for a meeting and subsequently being out forward for roles. The graduate manager I had, Anna, was incredibly supportive and made what can be a relatively daunting process very simple and easy! I was also in touch with two recruitment consultants, Megan and Jon, and they had both invested a lot of time into prepping myself for upcoming interviews they set up and by the Friday of the same week, I was already placed in a role. They all provided excellent support and service throughout the whole process and would highly recommend!​

  • Wonderful company. Very friendly, professional staff. Remi initially contacted me and was extremely friendly, enthusiastic and encouraging. Jon guided me through every step of the interview process for a role. Nothing was too much trouble for either of them and I found a job within two weeks of being contacted. Would definitely recommend for graduates looking for their first job.​

  • Amazing recruitment company that will support you and go the extra mile like no other! The clients that Certus recruit for, are top quality established companies that can honestly change your life. Big shout out to Megan K & Megan S for changing my life forever with the new job of my dreams! I only met the team to discuss roles on Monday and got a job 4 days later! Highly recommend Certus Recruitment Group :)​

    Petra Joli
  • Seaching for a new job is one of the hardest jobs and challenges anyone can go through. Before getting in touch with Certus I was having very little luck and was running low on patience and even confidence. Then the extremely motivating Megan K and Anna Green set me up with 3 different interviews which matched my requirements just 3 days after getting in touch. Megan K was always on hand to prepare me for interviews and even listened to my 20 minute presentation twice! I really appreciated the constant communication and constructive critisism towards my self-development. Thank you for keeping me motivated and always looking forwards. My new role is exactly what I was looking for :)​
