Reedmace was founded in 2019 to help scaling startups to solve the “who” problem
There must be a better way.
Having worked with tech companies for 15 years, with more than 300 successful hiring projects under his belt, our founder realised that recruitment was not effectively solving the “who” problem.
It was costly and left startups frustrated, unable to hire effectively on a consistent basis.
We researched different approaches to talent at startups from pre-seed, all the way to unicorn status and discovered two major trends:
The best performing startups didn’t need recruiters. They had built a strong in-house Talent Acquisition function.
By the time startups needed to scale rapidly, they rarely had the capability or capacity to execute.
In 2019 we pioneered a new approach to scaling startups which would harness the field of talent acquisition as opposed to solely relying upon recruitment which is a small subset of the field:
Plug the Talent Acquisition gap immediately
Reduce the need for expensive recruitment agencies
Deliver rapid scaling
Enable startups to do their own hiring
Since then, we have
Startups helped to scale
Enabled recent exits of £10m
“Series A” funding of $16m.
In 2018 I was in a position, carefully considering my next career move. I chose to create a groundbreaking business, focussed on solving the talent problem at scaling startups. By showing startups HOW to hire, rather than just doing it for them, I knew we could make a real difference. Since then, we have worked with over 60 startups and turned away many more.
We’ve had government funding, great press coverage and even helped a startup hire the right people to achieve an exit of £30m!
Our success to date has enabled us to offer an excellent career path for graduates, recruiters, headhunters and talent acquisition professionals.
By helping startups to solve their “who” problem rather than being forced to rely upon recruitment agencies, we fill a very distinct gap in a £29bn market (2021).
We have plans to scale our business rapidly and are looking for colleagues who want to be a part of the journey. The opportunity here is so much more than just a job. It’s the opportunity to build an incredible business together and share in the rewards of our success, while having fun.
