“La Fosse has been instrumental in helping me build the team at SBG. Their ability to find and secure the best possible talent has been second to none. I’ve known La Fosse for over five years now and, based on the service they provided me as a candidate when placing me at SBG, I had full confidence in them delivering the same service to potential candidates looking to join my team. La Fosse are experts when it comes to understanding the markets within niche areas of technology and security.
They have applied their knowledge effectively and have been an excellent brand ambassador for the business and its security journey, often tempting candidates to interview who were not on the open market. They took time to understand the cultural and technical fit for SBG, enabling them to grasp the brief expertly and be able to quickly present targeted talent with high levels of retention.
They have effectively tackled high volumes of hires for me, sometimes at very short notice, and have turned what is often a laborious and difficult task into a seamless one. The team at La Fosse is a pleasure to deal with and take a highly personable yet consultative approach to their work. During planning phases, they were able to feed back on availability of skills mixes, enabling me to adjust roles accordingly. They were also very open in sharing their knowledge of the market with regard to salaries and skill sets.
Taking the time to plan our go-to-market strategy and make sure the roles were fit for purpose was key to our successful hiring campaign. They are a great business partner to work with that always deliver on their commitments – I strongly recommend them as a hiring partner.”
