Embedded Recruitment Partnerships

The Lab17 embedded recruitment partnerships increase hiring volume and speed, helping you to scale quickly and sustainably.


Our high-performance, ready-to-go team will step in to save you time and money with unlimited hiring across all functions for one flat monthly fee. 


Because The Lab17’s expertise spans engineering, finance – and everything in between – you don’t need to rely on a legion of in-house TAs.

Welcome to The Lab17, your partner in growth.

The Lab17 team embeds itself into your organisation so we can truly understand your way of doing things. This model – along with our extensive industry insights – means we can easily share knowledge across your teams, offer market insights and upskill your employees.

The Lab17 carries the load, allowing you to concentrate on other growth-critical areas while saving time and money on TA hires.

As founders we were looking for a recruitment partner that could take us on a journey – improving our confidence and skills with hiring, while also introducing us to new team members that had much deeper capabilities and experience than ourselves. The Lab17 team has excelled. They’ve trained all of our people leaders on hiring practices and techniques, ensured we met our diversity objectives, managed our time and energy levels through the recruitment journey on different roles, and have basically just been fun to work with. Can’t recommend them higher. Thanks team.
