The startups & hypergrowths scaling their teams with Confido
Confido’s approach to recruiting for defty was, from the outset, entirely tailored to our specific needs and company culture. Having dealt with a large number of external recruiters I can attest to this conversation being much more in depth and far reaching than any other initial conversation I have had....

This simple up-front investment of time meant that the candidates they bought to our attention nearly always made it to an on-site interview which is much more than could be said for other agencies. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Confido again.
Daniel Brown - CTO, Defty
The most important aspect for me was calibrating with Confido really quickly on what we were looking for; within days of spec’ing out the role, we were seeing CVs and meeting potential candidates, so we could quickly agree and hone in what we were looking for... READ MORE READ LESS
. The guys were really keen to understand exactly what I was looking for from the start, and as a result the candidates we met were all high calibre and very credible. It meant the whole process was much quicker than I’ve experienced on similar searches in the past.
Richard Wazacz - CEO, Octopus Wealth
Craig and his team quickly understood the profile we were looking for in terms of technology, seniority and, crucially, culture. They were able to go beyond this by advising on how to communicate our brand and the opportunity to the market... READ MORE READ LESS
, and build out an efficient process to attract the top tier candidates we wanted. We're delighted to have made two hires very quickly and are continuing to work together. I'd highly recommend Confido.
Avin Rabheru - Founder & CEO, Housekeep
Confido have partnered with us in the truest sense helping us grow our Product Engineering tribe more in the last six months than we achieved with others over the previous twelve. They have demonstrated an emotional intelligence with candidates that I have not seen previously.... READ MORE READ LESS
Confido have shown a unique ability to marry the needs of Benefex and a candidate’s true career drivers. In my role as CTO, Confido have been a reliable source of market trends and a constructive sounding board for what the market can provide at a particular time. Without them, I am sure we wouldn’t be as far along our journey as we currently are; long may it continue.
Paul Smith - Benefex, CTO
Confido were recommended to Unmind as a search partner for tech and product hiring. From the get-go, I was impressed with JD and his ability to understand exactly who Unmind is and what we are trying to achieve. For me, what really sets them apart was their honest and passionate approach to helping companies overcome recruitment and scalability challenges.... READ MORE READ LESS
For a startup, the ability to grow with the right talent can be a challenge. JD committed time upfront to sit down and fully understand our backstory and vision, he was able to work with me to compile a brief and message that really captured our culture and act as a brand ambassador with every candidate they spoke to on our behalf. Their approach also meant that we identified potential friction points much earlier in the process, which allowed us to work together to shortlist a great pipeline of candidates. Their knowledge of the market and access to talent was really impressive and JD’s ability to run such an engaged, structured search, meant that we were able to react incredibly quickly and minimise the risk of losing great people. Confido has helped us secure some fantastic developers and I have no doubt that they will continue to be a pleasure to work with.
Nick Tong - Unmind, CTO
This was our first senior hire. We have a complex product and business model and needed a talent partner that would be able to understand and effectively communicate what we do, to attract top people within the senior talent market. Confido did this.... READ MORE READ LESS
They spent time upfront with me to understand our company proposition and our vision; they collaborated with me on how we would take the Skwire brand to market, and message this to attract the best candidates. Within 3 weeks they’d presented their shortlist and from that we made the hire. A simple, efficient process compared to other recruitment I have previously been involved in. I look forward to working with them as we continue to scale Skwire.
Bilal Khan - CTO, Skwire
Confido have been a true partner to us over the last 18 months, both in advice and execution for a number of key hires across the engineering and product teams. I’d recommend them highly to anyone needing to scale up their product and engineering functions.
