Next to running out of money, recruiting talented staff members is one of the biggest challenges a startup faces. In this episode we talk to Kristian James Founder of Hawkwood Partners, a recruitment consultancy, on what startups can do to attract the best talent they can afford.


Topics include why credibility is crucial for early-stage startups competing for talent, why hiring from your competitors can actually be a disadvantage and the changing role of HR. Particularly in startups where the position is increasingly viewed as a value-adding role, rather than one that’s there to mop up the mess.
