Hire Winners and Grow 

Focus on driving revenue while we build your
sales and marketing
teams.

Secure top sales talent in a competitive market

We have helped startups and scale-ups in the fintech and digital identity sector appoint their first salespeople and successfully hire sales and marketing teams.  The individuals we have placed have won new business, opened up key accounts, significantly reduced cost of acquisition and helped grow revenue that has fueled growth.   

We invest time vetting our candidates through detailed interviews tailored to your role and use role-specific psychometric testing.  This saves you time as we only present candidates who match your requirements.  The competition for talent is intense, so we move at page and create engaging briefs that sell your company and the opportunity to candidates.
