Post Funding Recruitment

Post Funding Growth

The days of 10% annual growth are well and truly gone. With a myriad of Private Equity and Venture Capital firms fighting to invest in the next big thing, the availability of growth capital is unlike any previous time. With funding comes growth objectives and they are often aggressive!

The ability to scale after a funding event is crucial to success and will determine the availability of further funding or even the future viability of the business.
Success is determined by two key factors – developing phenomenal products and taking them to market. Therefore, the development and implementation of a sound recruitment strategy is essential.

The extent of our involvement will depend on where you are on the journey and the strength and size of your existing team. Whatever the gap, we can fill it.


Recruitment Process


One of the biggest challenges faced by high growth businesses is time. It takes time to recruit great people but often those recruiting also have other jobs to do.

Equally, those people are often not experienced at hiring and don’t have a clear process of assessment.

The combination of other pressures and unclear process can lead to delays or the need for extra stages and this can have a very significant negative impact on candidate experience.

The creation of a well managed and structured recruitment process for each role is crucial. We will help create a recruitment process that is efficient and time effective, and one that candidates will enjoy thus maximising your ability to hire the best talent.

A great recruitment process can include the use of testing, group interviewing, video interviewing and other strategies that will contribute to its success.

In the current climate, the strongest candidates are a highly sort commodity. By making every touchpoint, from their reading the company LinkedIn page through to interviewers being on time, from the detail of the job description to their experience arriving in reception for an interview, we can control and effect the process in a way that maximises your opportunity for success.

Great Recruitment Marketing Collateral


A great recruitment project is supported by great collateral. We can help you build and create fantastic assets that will contribute to your ability to attract great talent both now and in the future. This can include:

  • Job Description and Person Specification

  • Benefits Documentation

  • ‘Working at’ collateral including video testimonials with existing staff

  • Assessment of online attraction – Linkedin, Careers section on the website, Glassdoor and Google review management etc


Testimonials Default Image
  • ​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!​

  • Jon, Gabi and Megan were amazing! They listened to what I needed and supported me to find the best role for me.​

    Claire Griffin
  • 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 :)​
