Seedlegals are a UK-based scaleup with a SAAS platform designed for startups. Their service automates legals such as shareholder agreements, employee options schemes and fundraising.
Before engaging with Move, they had four key challenges that needed addressing:
1: They lacked a structured, inclusive hiring process with little consistency across internal teams and, consequently, a lack of gender diversity in their cohort. Gender balance was 67.5% Male / 31.5% Female and 1% Non Binary.
2: They had no internal team and needed to double their headcount within 12 months, from a standing start of 72 employees in August 2021.
3: Cost per hire was £7,000, with an over-reliance on agencies.
4: Time to Hire was an average of 12 weeks.
Why SeedLegals chose Move
As CEO and founder of SeedLegals, Anthony Rose explains, “The pay-per-hire model doesn’t suit the nature of start-up businesses.”
He explained that it is both prohibitively expensive and encourages the wrong way of working.
With Move, SeedLegals enjoyed a ‘SaaS’ style model of recruiting, allowing them to hire volumes of people at a fixed and known cost.
“Had I had a pay-per-hire model, the bills would’ve been insane and prohibited the number of hires we’ve made. Instead, the Move model is transformative.”
