What we do for our clients is entirely bespoke. No two client needs are the same, no two hires are the same, therefore no two approaches can be the same.

The very first step is understanding you and your goals so that you can get maximum value from your relationship with us.

Broadly, we can provide proactive, consultative support in the following ways:

Finding and hiring one exceptional candidate is a highly skilled task. On occasion, our clients require rapid growth in a targeted territory and retain Altium to identify a Design Centre Director and the first 10-20 technical specialists who can become the establishing team.

In the last few years this has included setting embedded software centres of expertise and end-to-end semiconductor design centres in the US, Italy, France, India and the UK. We are adept at bringing together great people in a way that is both aligned with your brand culture and that harnesses the best of those individuals through shared goals and values.

Intelligence, formed through our industry knowledge and extensive research, is part of due process in most aspects of our service. For clients who require this insight to help inform their own decisions, we can provide comprehensive, tailored reports to help drive broader decision making.

This can include competitive organisation charts, high level competitor product roadmaps, regional technical and commercial centres, staff profiling and anything else of importance. This critical knowledge helps our clients transition from early-stage technology disruptors to commercially robust and scalable ventures.
