Our approach to building the winning team

So we know who will really drive growth and the skill set required. We support you end to end, from brief through to onboarding and manage the entire process.

The skillset required to be ‘marketer no.1’ or even no.10 is very different to an established brand where processes and brand are already in place.

At Scale Up, we build and deliver marketing strategies that scale challenger brands. As part of this, we build the best marketing team to deliver it.

After building marketing teams such as Starling Bank’s, we work with startups and scale ups to ensure they have the right talent, for the right stage of growth, advising the most effective mix of in-house, freelance and agency support for you.


We select candidates from our constantly growing diverse community of marketing talent and screen selected talent for initial suitability
