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

  • ​​Certus has been excellent in providing me with the right candidates for our business.  I have found the process extremely easy and believe that their sourcing system and qualification of candidates is of the highest level.

  • ‘We used Certus Graduate Recruitment to help us build our junior sales team from scratch and couldn’t be more impressed. After interviewing a number of recruitment firms, we eventually decided that, due to their willingness to learn about our culture and our product, we would work exclusively with Certus for this team. The candidates were of consistently high quality, while we were allowed to choose exactly how hands-on we were with the process; whether that be participating in their excellent open days, to simply having vetted candidates sent to our office for interviews. The people we’ve hired through Certus have ended up performing consistently above their targets and I would have no hesitation in working with them again.’

After reaching out to them, they helped me secure a number of interviews at excellent positions, taking serious consideration of my strengths and a genuine interest in what I wanted to do. Massive thanks to the team (particularly Anna and Remi!) for all the help. Thoroughly recommended!
