Freelance Hiring Manager

"I help small companies and start-ups with tech hiring on an ad-hoc basis. I work internally with your company to cover all your hiring needs, when you need it."


Why?

The hiring process should be transparent and affordable.

External recruitment is broken and is not working for either the candidate or the company. The majority of recruiters are simply not liked or trusted, have minimal technical knowledge, and due to the commission structure, they are biased and too expensive. Top candidates are so fed up with being inundated by recruitment agencies that many just ignore them completely.

I was previously the Digital Director of a fast-paced London agency, where the right hire was always crucial. Due to the above reasons and limited resources, I tackled hiring myself.

Years of experience as a software developer and my technical background (Engineering Degree and a PhD in a Bioinformatics) ensured only the right candidates were sourced and hired.

What I do

I help small companies and start-ups with tech hiring on an ad-hoc basis. I work internally with your company to cover all your hiring needs, when you need it.

You pay for the work that is done, like most professions, and as I am not commission based our goals are always aligned.

All work conducted is transparent and available to you at all times. Tasks can include:

  • Lead generation
  • Candidate screening
  • Initial skype interview/recording
  • Scheduling in-person interviews
  • Coordinating tech tests
  • Salary negotiation
  • Onboarding
  • HR Platform set up
