How Berg is helping a PE backed Ed-tech to scale

    The IU Group is one of Europe's largest education providers with 140,000 students taking studies to invest in their future. After a huge investment by Oakley Capital, the company has embarked on a significant change from education firm to ed-tech, building their entire software platform in house

    The challenge

    Despite having an incredible internal hiring team, IU Group had more roles than they were able to support, which led to slower delivery times and plans getting delayed.


    The solution

    Initially, the team collaborated on a product manager build-out, transitioning the product culture to a modern tech-first organisation.

    Since then, the Berg Search team have deployed hiring squads in both Product, Tech and Data and Go-To-Market, delivering incredible candidates in rapid time.


    We've made five hires together, including a Director of IT role where we completed the end to end executive search process in just 7 weeks.

    Hires also included a Senior PHP Engineer, a Head of Salesforce, a Head of Engineering as well as a Chief of Staff


    The team at Berg are delivering an amazing service end-to-end in finding, interviewing and placing senior executives at record speed. Saves us >40% in time vs. conventional processes
