Why use a specialist recruitment agency

Why use a specialist recruitment agency?

The recent Business Barometer Report claims 73% of UK businesses are facing a skills shortage and a massive 42% of companies are struggling to fill vacancies due to lack of applicants. Not only is this stunting growth but it’s also having a negative impact on staff morale; further augmenting the issue.

Whilst fundamental to the success of any cyber/tech scale-up, for a lot of cyber-tech entrepreneurs recruiting talent can often mean a huge amount of work outside of your comfort zone.

The challenge of finding, acquiring and retaining the right people to trust with your valuable ideas can create a whole host of challenges, all while you are no doubt deeply involved in the technical aspects of your business.

What  if  you  could  find  someone  who  not  only  understood  the importance  of  finding  great  talent  for  your  business  but  also offered advice and guidance on how to build a culture and ethos where your people can thrive, enabling them to fully express all their capabilities.

Someone who knows where your solution sits in the  marketplace and  can  articulate  this  in a non-technical way. Who can introduce enterprise client contacts at C-level who could be interested in your product. Who work with you as you grow to support and guide you as a true partner…
