Dan Leighton – Founder – Agilis AI

Company size: 1-10 employees

Project: Product Development

“We’ve had two fantastic interns through Workfinder who arrived ready and ‘pre-prepared’ to contribute to our business. I believe a lot of that is down to the approach Workfinder took in structuring the internship. The students have made genuinely valuable contributions to our new assessment product.  Many of their inputs are now featured in the live codebase – and they will be representing the product at a startup festival on our behalf next month!”


Dan Cottrell – Founder and Podcaster-In-Chief @ The Podcast Guys

Company size: 11-50 employees

Project: Digital Marketing

“We are a start-up agency that is growing rapidly. Thanks to Workfinder, we managed to find a fantastic intern to join us in the capacity of a Digital Marketing Executive to manage all of our own agency marketing requirements so that we can fully focus on delivering for our clients. I would highly recommend Workfinder if you need access to first class talent in a short space of time to help you to scale up your business in a cost effective way. We will definitely be using Workfinder to support the next phase of our growth.”


Nick Barratt – Director – Sticks Research Agency

Company size: 11-50 employees

Project: Company Rebrand and Website Design

“We used Workfinder to build a small team to deliver a long-overdue rebranding and website redesign exercise. Using their profiles, it was quick and easy to spot complimentary skillsets and, following some basic interviews, select the right candidates to deliver the brief. The work has added a huge amount of value to our business, as we’ve found an increased volume of traffic and higher percentage of commissions. So it’s been a really effective process, one that I’d repeat again should the need arise.”


Jess Redfern – Senior People Manager – Makers Academy

Company size: 11-50 employees

Project: People Assistant

With Workfinder’s help we were able to find someone incredibly aligned to our mission and vision at Makers for a placement in the People Team. They’ve been with us for just under a month and have already added so much value to our people processes and initiatives by alleviating pressure, and enabling us to level up our impact across the business. Having a small people team, it’s personally been great having someone with fresh energy, ideas, and experiences to work alongside and drive improvements with.”


Lydia Smith – Examinations Delivery Manager – The Language Shop

Company size: 51-200 employees

Project: Logo redesign

“Fionnuala joined our team to support the redesign of our logo, and what a fabulous addition she was! Having been using the same logo for 15+ years, the task was rather a momentous one, but something that Fionnuala handled with great professionalism and creativity. In just two weeks, Fionnuala completed thorough market research, the ideation and design of numerous iterations, while having the opportunity to present her brilliant designs to our Management team. While Fionnuala benefitted from being able to put into practice skills learned throughout her degree in a business environment, she helped us reach a final design which encapsulated our brand and ethos perfectly – something we had been struggling to do ourselves for months. We cannot praise Fionnuala, or the Workfinder team for helping us connect, enough. What a positive, rewarding and successful experience!”
