Talent acquisition for the startup space

Wilson Grey was established with the purpose of helping startups hire the talent they need to become the scaling tech businesses of tomorrow. Focusing on the FinTech scene, we soon expanded into HealthTech, SaaS and industry sectors that share a need for the same type of expertise. Today we work with both early stage and scaling startups on securing talent within Product, Design, Engineering, Data, Sales and Marketing. We support our clients with permanent and contract solutions.

Attract, secure and retain talent
We provide a genuine end-to-end service. Employing our own in-house tools and solutions we work with clients to review and understand their culture, identify the talent they need to make the progress they’ve forecast, and ensure high retention rates of new hires. When we partner with a business we become the face of their brand in the candidate marketplace and we take this responsibility seriously.
Benefit from startup expertise

We have a unique candidate network that is comprised almost exclusively of people already working in a startup or scaleup. These are individuals who relish the challenge of making a new business succeed, working in agile ways and at times, in uncertain environments. Often, they’ve already been part of that journey with a scaling business and are familiar with the pitfalls and setbacks that need to be overcome on the way. What our candidates will have in common is an understanding of what it takes to succeed in your space.

One of the team

A tailored approach

Every client we work with is different. From HealthTech startups to a wide variety of FinTech businesses and high growth SaaS companies, each one requires a different service and approach, which is why we’ve designed our solutions to be tailored to your exact requirements. Unlike larger, inflexible recruitment agencies, we’ve established our business model specifically with startups in mind. This means we’re not plagued with offering the everyday, boring and broken recruitment service like the majority of agencies. 

Whatever stage you’re at or the outcomes you’re looking to achieve, partnering with us guarantees a personal and human approach that takes into consideration your particular needs. We offer solutions for clients looking to make executive appointments, one-off key hires, build teams or put urgent contractor support in place. Our flexible payment plans are designed to respond to your budget and any funding constraints.

Testimonials

What our clients say about us
I worked with Wilson Grey to place a contract role at short notice on two occasions and they were excellent. They made sure to understand the role and worked tirelessly to present suitable CVs, sometimes working over the weekend to ensure I had a list of good candidates to screen. Both times, all the candidates that got through to interview were suitable for the role and once placed, turned out to be excellent. Wilson Grey have great follow-up as well, keeping in regular contact throughout the contract period. I will definitely use them in future when the need arises.

My experience with Wilson Grey has been great. After being quite specific with my requirements I received an amazing, well advised list of potential candidates to choose from, and subsequently took on a great freelancer who has fitted into the team very well. Thank you so much. I will definitely be coming back when we need more new team members!

Chief Operating Officer
FinTech payments startup
I've worked with Wilson Grey on a couple senior roles now and it's been a real pleasure. Before understanding the ins and outs of the role, they have always made it their priority to understand the culture of our business first, which as a scaling company, is paramount. All feedback/guidance is always listened to with open ears, which ensures that each candidate sent through is excellent and a great fit. The process is also brilliant - constant communication means we never feel in the dark. It often feels as though Wilson Grey are simply an extension of our hiring team.

Thalamos is trying to deliver an entirely new solution to a market previously underserved by technology. To achieve this, we need best in class client support. Like all start-ups however we’re operating on a tight budget and with limited resources. Essentially that was the brief we gave Wilson Grey.
