And there's more

Your senior talent partner supports you with everything surrounding talent acquisition.

Building your employer brand

We help translate your vision into a powerful employer brand that will lead to a higher number of quality inbound applicants. 

This includes setting up your careers page as well as building collateral including video and social media content as well as job descriptions.

Organizational planning

You know where you want to be in three years but you may need an independent pair of eyes to plan the people strategy supporting your ambitions.

We support you with people modelling and organizational maps.

Who do you need?

Using an outcome-based model, we speak with various stakeholders to align on exactly what a successful candidate looks like and then create the search approach (outbound only, industry jobs boards etc).

We provide you with intelligence about salaries as well as applicable employment laws by country.

Who we’ve hired for


Our values

Values are central to our service. We guard our values religiously because they form the basis of what we do.

The impact of not having that person is not being able to execute to perfection. We will operate as though you expected that person yesterday, we refer to this internally as BERGspeed.

icons (5) Honesty - We believe in confronting brutal facts

If there is anything bocking you from getting that great hire, we will be up front and honest, even if the truth sometimes hurts.

icons (6) Responsiveness - We communicate pro-actively and clearly

We earn our fees by making your search for greatness feel effortless. We will keep you updated proactively and be there on an ad-hoc basis whenever you need us.

icons (7) Vision-driven companies only - we will only source exceptional people

We work only with vision-driven companies, where a new hire isn’t just a number but one more piece of the puzzle.

Frequently asked questions

How much does your service cost?

For short-term startup hiring projects, we charge a flat rate of 12% of each hire's first-year salary. This could be lower if the project is larger.

What functions do you specialise in?

Berg Search has startup recruitment professionals with experience across functions.

We split our hiring teams into three practices

  • Product, Tech, and Data
  • Sales and Marketing
  • Central Functions

Your hiring team will therefore depend on the types of people that you hire

Why is Berg better than a traditional recruitment agency?

Berg Search believes in long-term relationships, great service, and fair pricing.

  • Berg Search is as much as 50% cheaper than traditional afencies and in some cases cheaper than a 100% internal talent function as well
  • Recruitment partners represent your brand to candidates. Some recruitment agencies are opaque about how they interact with candidates which could risk your employer brand.  We record every single interview and make it available to you. This leads to ultimate transparency
  • We focus specifically on growth companies because the mindset required to be successful in startups is fundamentally different. Most traditional agencies are used to traditional companies because there is a lot more of them!
  • Berg Search shares all our processes because our goal isn't to profit maximise, it's to help you become great.

What types of companies work with Berg Search?

Berg Search works almost exclusively with growth companies. This is because the types of people who succeed in growth companies are very different from those who succeed in enterprise companies.

We believe in specialising our interview and assessment approach to those specific candidates.
