"When our first Digital Marketing Manager decided to leave the business, they recommended we approach Stopgap to help find their replacement, having had a great experience with them previously as a candidate.

I'll be honest, I was apprehensive about using a recruitment agency. I had quite a negative perception of the industry, where consultants would push any old candidate on you, whether they were the right fit for the role or not. Sarah and the team at Stopgap, quickly dispelled those concerns."
RED SIFT - CYBER SECURITY

UNDERSTANDING THE CHALLENGE

At Stopgap we have a wealth of experience supporting startups and innovative, growing businesses to hire their first marketer or grow their teams.

Recruiting the right people in a startup can be a unique challenge and it's one that we understand well.
With our experience and rich candidate pool, we were able to give Clare a good understanding of what they could expect for the budget and requirements, setting expectations and helping to define the skill sets required.
To date, we have helped Red Sift recruit a digital marketer, a product marketing manager and a marketing executive."

 

"Stopgap immediately understood the type of candidate we were looking for and the challenges we faced.

Working for a startup can be very exciting and rewarding, but it takes a certain type of person. We wanted someone happy to join a growing business who had ambitions and experience of working at a high level, who would be able to help us grow strategically. But also someone who understood everything that comes with marketing a startup; the lack of structure at times, a lack of resources and a need to really roll your sleeves up and get stuck in."

CONSULTANCY IN EVERY SENSE OF THE WORD

"What really impressed me about Stopgap was that I never had to have the same conversation twice.

Sarah listened and understood our requirements for a role from the outset and took our feedback on the candidates on board, refining the search at every stage and filtering candidates down well based on feedback. When you're time poor like we are, but also have a very specific set of requirements, a recruiter who listens, understands but also advises, is essential."
