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.

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.
