West Talent Services helps companies solve their most critical talent needs.

West was founded to help early stage companies do whatever it takes to move up the growth curve. It quickly became clear that many of our companies did not have the talent or organizational structure in place to execute on their aggressive growth plans and retain their top talent. With deep knowledge of startups, an extensive talent network, and our unique position as a strategic brand partner and investor, we knew that we could help. We launched our Retained Recruiting services in 2019 and have since expanded to help startups attract, hire, and retain top talent.

  • Retained Recruiting. Recruiting is in our roots and was the first line of support we launched for our portfolio companies. Since then, we’ve placed dozens of senior leaders across marketing, sales, finance, engineering, and operations in some of the fastest growing and most exciting businesses. We’re successful because, as investors and partners, we are aligned with your growth, have a deep understanding of your business and culture, and can generate excitement between a candidate and your company. Our Talent Services team is experienced at finding the right talent to meet not only your critical business needs of today, but move the needle towards your next milestone.

  • Employer Branding. A strong employer brand creates excitement and intrigue among great talent––ultimately motivating them to take a risk and join your team. Here we work with you to develop a comprehensive employer brand that drives toward the right business outcome. Think everything from your careers page to unique event activations that are designed to help you show up in the right place, at the right time, and, most importantly, with the right message.

  • Talent Assessment. It’s time for your Talent Checkup. We look closely at your business, your competitors, and your candidate experience to ultimately inform your talent needs and provide you with solutions to hire successfully. Curious about your average cost-per-hire or lacking the data to make informed salary decisions? Our Talent Assessment services are the first step to building a successful talent machine.

What our clients say:

After we closed our Series A, recruiting became our number one concern at the company. Having run an in-depth process for our branding, West became intimately connected to our identity, mission, and values. They leveraged this awareness to send us candidates we didn’t even know to look for.

– Cameron Yarbrough – CEO of Torch

The experience of hiring our customer success employee on our own compared to the experience of having West recruit for our sales hire was night and day. Arthur is truly dedicated to helping the companies he works with and ensures he can spend the needed time helping each one.

– Jack Forbes – CEO of Kopa
