Switch is moving from a consulting and educational company to an innovative SaaS solutions provider for charging station manufacturers and charging station operators in the UK. Dr. Marc Mültin was referred to us by a previous client, we were tasked with hiring the first 7 people into the company, advising the chief technology officer on what skillset was needed, sourcing candidates, conducting the initial video interviews and aiding with employment contracts and their remote onboarding processes.
We worked extremely closely with the chief technology officer for these initial hires, creating job specs, consulting on contracts for each of the tech roles, and setting up a project management platform for us and Switch to use throughout the entire process. This created a seamless recruitment process for both sides. We conducted the first stage interviews to ensure the best talent was put across. We also created an online onboarding process for Switch to follow once the right candidates were found. During Covid19 Switch worked remotely however, Marc wanted an office space to meet once a week, of which we were also able to provide.
Due to our extremely close relationship with Marc, this made our hiring process very quick and easy. Our consultants were able to fill each of these positions in under 18 days.

"Harry and his team have been immensely helpful to source great software engineers and a senior product manager to kick off my new startup. They fit extremely well into my company. When it comes to finding highly qualified team players with a great can-do attitude, Albert Bow is the way to go. Communication with them has always been super friendly and they are all really determined to find not just any candidate, but the right one for your team. It’s a huge time saver as you get qualified CVs and the kind of people that match your company’s mission and spirit. I would recommend Harry and his team any time."
Bud is building a financial ecosystem to underpin modern banking: one that seamlessly connects people to financial products & services that improve their lives.
Working alongside the internal talent team at Bud, we filled 13 positions out of 15 live roles, 11 of which being in their Backend Team.
In mid 2018 we began work with Bud. Their objective was to grow out their Technology Team with major focus on their Backend Team, where they were struggling to recruit high quality candidates. Bud wanted to achieve this rapid growth in the most cost effective and efficient way. We were initially brought in alongside 8 other agencies who had been working with Bud previously. We soon became the sole supplier for all of Bud’s technical hires.
From the very beginning of our relationship with Bud we regularly discussed the businesses requirements, hiring needs, challenges and preferred methods of communication. Each of our consultants specialise in their own market which allows them to build a strong network in their field therefore allowing us to provide the best match for each role at Bud.
In just under a year of partnering with Bud we have filled 13/15 of the live roles. Building out 50% of their Backend Team, along with placements in their Mobile Team and Change and Transformation Team.
