Post Funding Growth

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.

At Certus Recruitment we are a specialist Technology recruiter. We have helped hundreds of businesses across the technology sector including, but not limited to:

  • Martech

  • Fintech

  • Data & Analytics


Certus Recruitment can help you determine and define your human capital growth plan. We advise on role definition and team structure including and any gaps in the leadership team. We will assist in determining compensation schemes and can advise on the availability of talent and how best to attract it.

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 interview, we can control and effect the process in a way that maximises your opportunity for success.

Flexible Resource

Certus Recruitment provides every client with a named Account Director and an Account Manager. Depending on the extent of your requirement, they will call upon the resources needed to ensure delivery on time and in the required number.

Testimonials Default Image
  • ​I found Gabriele to be extremely professional and proactive which made the whole process far less stressful than a job hunt can sometimes be. She made a point of keeping me updated when the process was dragging out and was always open and transparent around the situation. I really appreciated her approach and I feel like she took the time to understand my background and requirements before putting roles in front of me. I dealt with a few recruiters during my job hunt and I'm sure you will know that not all are as methodic. It was a pleasure to deal with Gabriele and Certus and will absolutely be referencing you guys to friends/colleagues etc.

  • The company was so helpful in finding me a job! I worked together with Gabi mostly, who was always happy to talk to me and answer any questions. She also prepped me so well for my interview, with information packages and mock interviews, which resulted in me getting the job! I would highly recommend this recruitment agency!​

  • Jimmy Bower and Megan Speet helped me secure my perfect job - they helped me through the application process and then through all the interviews. They were always there to offer encouragement and support no matter what time of day. They were both professional, helpful and knowledgeable, and most of all, friendly, which made the entire process much more pleasant! Highly recommend Certus.​
