Freetrade is a UK-based financial technology company that offers a freemium share dealing service. 

The challenge

Due to the nature of this business not only as a challenger to the incumbents but also with very complex regulatory requirements, it was critical that the bar was set extremely high for the quality of candidates who would join the team. With an added time pressure of the impending product launch, agility and speed were critical requirements!

The solution

Working together in partnership with Freetrade, we provided some feedback, guidance, and process enhancement to their recruitment process incorporating their applicant tracking system (ATS).  A multiple approach model was agreed to reach out to the different candidate types from selected target companies.

After agreeing on the type of candidates to approach, we spent the coming weeks reaching out to candidates 7 days a week, set up a 3 stage interview process, (which included technical loops, on-site assessments, and team meetings), to move the right candidates through the recruitment process. 

The result

After an extensive search and in-depth recruitment process, a candidate was selected with the right technical caliber, values, and culture fit that would make a great addition to the existing Freetrade team - all in time for the product launch!
