The context

Who are Cuvva? 

Cuvva is a London-based fintech start-up revolutionising the insurance industry. Their app offers car insurance over flexible time periods. They closed their £15million series A in December 2019.

We asked Cuvva VP of Talent, Gemma Boulton, the following:

Why did you work with Move in the first place? 
“I was looking for a solution that would integrate fully into our way of working, that had similar values and ways of working, but also needed to have start-up high growth experience, add on to that the fact they were priced competitively it was a no brainer”

 

What specific hiring challenges were Cuvva facing? 
“We had been conservative on hiring so had a back log of roles to fill, no established People & Talent team and very little time to get resources in place. Whilst we needed to hire a number of roles quickly, we then needed to slow it down before we pick it back up again”

 

How did Move solve those challenges? 
“The last thing i needed was to hire a perm in house team who would get bored and leave or have nothing to do during the very slow months,
Having a dedicated team with a strategist, talent Manager and sourcer meant I got a plug in and play service, taking all of the workload off of my desk and into the safe hands of highly experienced people, who are used to hiring super smart engineers that are very difficult to find!”

Why would you recommend Move for other businesses? 
“You get a full team for roughly what 1 talent partner costs to hire permanently, without any of the risks, they know what they are doing & have been able to understand our business and its demands quickly meaning there isn’t any ‘ramp-up’ or ‘settling in’ periods, We are also able to turn the service up when we have busy hiring periods and down when we don’t, they have assumed our identity so the candidate still gets the in-house feel,

Having used and been burnt by RPO services in the past I know how risky making the decision to sign up for an RPO can be, but move are awesome and I couldn’t recommend them enough”
