Switch is accelerating the world's transition to a future-proof EV charging infrastructure for a more sustainable way of living.

Summary

The chief technology officer was referred to us by a previous client, working collaboratively we were able to advise on the entire hiring process from writing job specs to the on boarding process. We filled all positions in under 3 weeks.

Objective

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.

Process

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.

Result

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.

CEO at Switch

"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

Bud is building a financial ecosystem to underpin modern banking: one that seamlessly connects people to financial products & services that improve their lives.

Summary

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.

Objective

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.

Process

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.

Result

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.

"David helped us at Lick’d to recruit 2x fantastic developers. We used a few recruitment agencies at the time but David consistently came up with great technical candidates who hit the mark every time on the technical skills required. Rather than bombard us with lots of useless CVs to sift through we were given a choice of a few outstanding candidates to pick from helping us fill the role quicker. David has proven himself to us and we'll be using him as our first port of call whenever we need to hire talent."

"We teamed up with Craig at the end of 2018 to meet a relatively challenging brief. He discovered a strong developer candidate in a competitive London market in a very short space of time. To prove that wasn’t just the luck of the Irish, Craig demonstrated that he knew his market and his candidates very well. He responded to early candidate feedback very quickly during our search; helping him to get a feel for the most important characteristics our successful candidate needed to demonstrate. We felt Craig delivered the right balance of interesting and good quality CVs without bombarding us with everything in the draw."
