ScaleUp Radio Podcast with Ben Craig

“Finding amazing people for our clients starts with growing amazing people within our organisation.”

This principle lies at the core of InfoSec People, a leading recruitment business specialising in sourcing top talent for cyber security and data privacy roles across the UK, Europe, and the USA. With a rich history spanning 15 years, we have established ourselves as trusted partners to companies in need of exceptional professionals, from C-level executives to skilled developers. Our headquarters are located in Cheltenham, and our team currently consists of 20 dedicated individuals, with plans to expand by an additional five members by the end of 2023.

We were thrilled to have the opportunity to share our journey with Granger Forson on ScaleUp Radio. During the conversation, we delved into various aspects that define our approach and set us apart in the industry. One fundamental aspect we discussed was the importance of upholding our values throughout the hiring process while seeking individuals who not only possess the required skills but also resonate with our company culture. At InfoSec People, we firmly believe that our people are the driving force behind our success, and finding the right individuals who align with our values and goals is paramount.

Navigating through challenging times was another topic we explored during the interview. By understanding our markets and making sound decisions, we have successfully weathered various industry fluctuations. We remain committed to making strategic choices that enable us to provide exceptional services to our clients, even in the face of adversity. Our resilience and adaptability have been instrumental in sustaining our growth and cementing our position as a trusted recruitment partner.

A unique aspect of our recruitment process that we highlighted in our conversation is the involvement of our entire organisation in the interview process. We firmly believe that diverse perspectives and insights from our team members contribute to more effective candidate assessments. This approach not only ensures that we find the best fit for our clients but also fosters a sense of ownership and inclusivity within our company. We value the collaborative environment we have cultivated at InfoSec People, where everyone feels empowered to contribute to the growth and success of our organisation.

What truly sets us apart is our unwavering focus on people. As we look towards the future, our vision is for our team members to embark on a long-term journey with us, growing into more senior roles within our organisation. We are passionate about nurturing and developing our people, as their professional growth and personal fulfilment are central to our mission. By investing in our team’s development, we ensure that we have a talented and dedicated workforce capable of delivering outstanding results for our clients.

We are delighted to share this episode with you, as we believe it offers valuable insights into the world of recruitment, cybersecurity, and building a business centered around people. Thank you for joining us on this journey, and we hope you enjoy listening to our conversation on ScaleUp Radio.
