Being a high growth technology start up, project44 had experienced significant success in the North America and EMEA regions, and were now looking to launch an international expansion plan with considerable growth in new regions such as LATAM , APAC and ANZ.

Jonathon Walmsley, Associate Director and Global Headhunter within SaaS and Supply Chain Software was heavily involved in initial conversations with project44 to demonstrate the value CSG Talent could add to project44’s hiring strategy.

They wanted to explore a diverse a talent pool and review attractive salary packages to ensure they could appeal to candidates above their competition. Engaging with CSG Talent to advise on this was essential to an effective hiring strategy for project44.
