Launch of Fintech advisor service

by | Aug 12, 2020 | FinTech News, Hiring tips | 0 comments

Tier One People launch Fintech advisor service to give founders the support they need, when they need it most. 

Getting the wrong people on board can be fatal for any startup.

Access to the right people, investors and partners is the biggest challenge facing any founder.

And hiring is also the one challenge most founders are least equipped for. 

When we interviewed 300 plus founders, less than 1% have a background in HR, talent or recruitment.

And of the 300 plus Fintech we have assessed, fewer than 10% have any HR expertise in their business sub 30 people.

Yet over 90% of founders stated finding the right people was their number one challenge. And more than 50% said bad hiring decisions had set the business back.

Recruitment agencies aren’t set up for startups.

The traditional recruitment model is too expensive for startups. We’ve seen so many startups waste valuable capital on recruiter fees.

The results of using a recruiter are mostly underwhelming and we only ever advise clients to use specialist recruiters for specialist roles. We believe startups should do as much hiring as they can themselves.

Here’s the big problem though. Hiring is complex, yet most founders think it is easy, until it’s too late and they have made some really bad hiring decisions.

It only takes one bad hire to ruin the culture.

The reverse is also true. On rockstar hire can be the catalyst to hiring an all-star team, without getting a recruiter involved.

We believe the solution to helping founders scale doesn’t lie in us filling jobs, but in offering our support, expertise and guidance throughout the growth journey.

So, due to demand from the Fintech community we offer a far more affordable solution to using recruitment firms with the launch of our Advisory Service.

How much faster could you grow your business if you had access to the right people?
