Rated 4.8/5 by founders️️.
I have loved working with the Studio team. They are an incredibly talented group, brilliantly connected, dynamic and of course absolutely invested in business success. They have the CEO perspective and move fast and delicately to drive impact. They feel like a powerful extension of your team, available immediately without any of the quality risk involved in recruitment or hiring consultants.
Rachel has been brilliant in supporting and strengthening our hiring process from identifying great talent to nailing the onboarding. Her experience and insights are not only limited to hiring but also general HR practices, once the candidate has been secured. I would recommend working with her to any growing company.
Rachel and the Talent team have been amazing at finding us someone that is a strong fit for both the job and the company culture. They put in a significant amount of time upfront to properly understand what we were looking for. They were fast and responsive and we'll be using them again for sure.
The Forward Talent team have been a key part in driving our growth as a company - they produce excellent results and work at pace. As an early investor too, they really understand the business’ mission, culture and needs which helps identify the right candidates. The team is super proactive when we need them and drive the whole recruitment process to effectively meet the needs of our hiring plans.
Rachel and Jawad have been absolutely stellar, couldn't have asked for better support, and the candidates we've spoken to so far have all been high caliber - record turn around on a new senior hire!
Building product success through customer understanding.
Forward worked with Lexoo to gather, analyse and synthesise customer insight. The studio team rapidly built a concierge-based product, which meant the team could launch quickly, onboard new lawyers and bring them customers - all in just 6 weeks.
Supercharging growth with a strong team and culture.
Ably grew quickly from a team that could sit comfortably around one table, to 40 people dispersed across Europe. Forward’s studio experts worked with Ably’s founders to define their purpose and mission. We worked together to develop a high-performing culture that would align and unite their fast-growing team.
