The challenge

PassFort had aggressive growth ambitions after recognising a gap in the software and compliance market. With no previous recruitment function, they needed to hire quickly but didn’t have the time or resources to facilitate this in-house.

Enter Troi. The perfect embedded talent team to hit the ground running and shape an entire function with the specialist skill and knowledge to truly take ownership of the complete end-to-end hiring solution whilst ensuring PassFort’s culture and values resonated throughout the entire process.

The solution
