Thalamos is trying to deliver an entirely new solution to a market previously underserved by technology. To achieve this, we need best in class client support. Like all start-ups however we’re operating on a tight budget and with limited resources. Essentially that was the brief we gave Wilson Grey.
I've worked with Wilson Grey on a couple of senior roles and it's been a real pleasure. They made it their priority to understand the culture of our business first, which as a scaling company, is paramount. All feedback/guidance is always listened to with open ears, which ensures that each candidate sent through is excellent and a great fit. The process is also brilliant - constant communication means we never feel in the dark. It often feels as though Wilson Grey are simply an extension of our hiring team
