“Starting up a new, leading edge technology business can be a daunting prospect, especially when it comes to hiring the right team. Given their software / digital heritage we approached BrightBox to understand how they could help me grow my team. From day one we had niche requirements and we were amazed at the pin point accuracy they had with candidate matching, this included assessing the cultural fit for the business we wanted to grow. It was also helpful to talk with the owners about the journey they had been on. I would highly recommend working with BrightBox whether you are a new startup or an established business.”
Gary Mawdsley, Managing Director, Data Signals
Big Data, Tailored Recruitment
Data Signals at the start of 2018 required a recruitment partner dedicated to helping small start-ups in what is a highly competitive data science talent landscape. The initial team needed to be fully operational within its first quarter, with all members of its technical team required on site within its Manchester City centre offices. BrightBox managed to execute a blended permeant and contractor-based model that has led to Data Signals delivering above expectations.
Following the original start-up phase BrightBox has been retained as the sole supplier for all Data Signals subsequent hires.
Along with meeting candidates and supervising the initial interview processes, BrightBox manages all pre-employment screening for Data Signals candidates, testing, credit and reference checks. We manage all offers, contracts and on boarding of candidates. Ensuring we are on site for every interview and first day. This has meant that Gary and the team can focus on delivering against the timelines whilst knowing that the recruitment continues to be managed effectively and efficiently.
