How To Set Your Talent Team Up For Success

Thomas Forstner, Director of People & Talent, Juro

Thomas is Director of People & Talent at Juro – a 55-people contract automation platform on a mission to de-throne MS Word – where he is building a human-centric, scalable People & Talent function from the ground up.

Juro is backed by Union Square Ventures, Point Nine Capital, Seedcamp and the founders of TransferWise, Gumtree and Indeed. Juro powers more than 100,000 contracts in more than 65 countries, with a customer base that includes Trustpilot, Deliveroo, Secret Escapes and Cazoo. Juro is an all-in-one contract automation platform that helps visionary legal counsel and the teams they enable to agree and manage contracts in one unified workspace. Juro was founded in 2016 by Richard Mabey, an ex-Freshfields lawyer, and Pavel Kovalevich, a software engineer and entrepreneur.

This is a great conversation with Thomas who talks us through how he sets up his team as a Strategic Business Function. Tom’s team will play a key part in making sure that new hires are absolutely pivotal to the business and will sometimes turn down hiring managers requests!
