At Hired By Startups, we’re London’s leading recruiter exclusively working with high growth startups to source, engage and hire the best commercial talent.

We’ve scaled teams and made leadership hires for the best startups out there so if you’re serious about hiring great talent, we’re here to help.

Exclusively For Startups

At Hired By Startups we exclusively hire for early stage, high growth startups – our sweet spot is post-Seed & Series A. However, we’re always happy to help startup Founders make their very first hires and continue to help as our clients continue to fundraise post-Series A and beyond.

Commercial Hiring Experts

We’re experts in hiring across Sales, Marketing, Operations and Customer Experience. We regularly hire across all four functions from volume hiring of graduate Customer Experience teams, to hiring experienced Business Development Managers to completing retained Senior Leadership searches.

Startup Candidate Network

With us you’ll gain access to brightest startup candidates through our twenty thousand strong, fully GDPR compliant candidate network which is growing daily. We don’t rely on this though, we’re search experts so we always find the best candidate, whether they’re already in our network or not.

Culture Fit Focused

We think culture fit is equally important to skills and experience when building a startup team. We really get to know each startup we work with; their team, ambitions, values and quirks. We then search to find candidates we believe will add to that culture as well as having all the right skills and experience.

Fast & Scalable Startup Hiring

As the leading startup recruiter, our hiring service has been designed specifically for early stage, high growth companies. That means we work lightening fast and can scale hiring up or down depending on your startup’s needs whilst ensuring your cost per hire is as efficient as possible.

What startups are saying about us…

“Hired By Startups is one of the best recruitment solutions we’ve ever used. As a growing startup, we need to rapidly source, engage and recruit the best talent and Hired By Startups have enabled us to do just this.”

“Hired By Startups did a great job in helping us meet our aggressive hiring targets. They made a number of senior hires including Head of Marketing, Head of Sales and Head of Expansion. I’d highly recommend them.”

The best way to hire commercial startup talent


Permanent Hires

Startup hiring needs to happen fast and so our permanent hiring service is deigned to suit.

We’ll work with your hiring manager to build a full picture of the hiring need, searching inside and outside of our network to engage the best candidates.

We’ll then manage the process end-to-end to make sure the role is filled and new hire fully integrates into your team.

Leadership Search

Hiring outstanding senior leaders is critical to the success of every startup.

Utilising our outstanding network, we’re constantly engaging and following movements amongst senior leaders within the UK’s top startups and scale-ups.

We know the specific challenges of leadership search & selection, using our experience to ensure successful delivery.

Contract Solutions

Short term experienced hires for your startup on a contract basis.

Ideal if your startup immediately needs an experienced hire to act as an interim leader or if you need a specific skillset for a shorter term project.

We have a great network of experienced contract talent who can integrate into your team and add value from day one.

Onsite Recruitment

Dedicated onsite recruiters scaling teams across your entire startup.

We’ll parachute an experienced recruiter to work exclusively with you, based in your office to hire across all functions and at every level for 3-12 months.

You’ll get the flexibility and candidate network of our agency with the support and cost savings of your own internal team.
