Start-ups & Scale-ups

Are you making that all-important first management hire or getting ready to scale? The Agora team can help you every step of the way.

We know that hiring for startups is a different ballgame.

Skills and experience are vital when the business is moving fast, but nailing the energy and ambition needed to thrive in the startup environment is just as important.

Maintain Momentum

You need to make hires that will bring a creative, enterprising mindset to your team; people who will maintain your momentum and are excited to build the next big thing.

The problem? Finding brilliant candidates takes time and resources that few founders have to spare. Recruitment needs to be efficient and effective, so you can be confident that the candidates you’ve got lined up are the right people – not the most convenient.

We’ve partnered with fast-growing startups to successfully complete searches for a range of roles, including:

Chief Marketing Officer


Chief Product Officer

WIT Fitness.

Chief Technology Officer


Finance Director


Managing Director


Chief Commercial Officer

WIT Fitness.

Head of Growth


Head of International

Skin + Me.

Chief Operating Officer
