Six degrees of talent separation

Sixley helps you get recommendations from your trusted network. And we follow up on their recommendations, through every degree of separation, until you find that gold dust hire.

Why Sixley

The power of recommendation

We believe that industry recommendations bring in the best hires - professionally, personally, and culturally. Here’s why we’re right.

It’s faster

Referred candidates are 55% faster to hire than those found through career sites.

People stay longer

Referred hires are twice as likely to stay for two or more years than those found through a jobs board.

Preferred by blue-chip

Referrals can account for nearly 50% of all hires at top-performing firms.

Brings in passive candidates

80% of HR professionals believe passive candidates become the most effective employees.

Fairer fees

A fairer way to hire

We run on a rewards based system to motivate and thank our recommenders. Sixley also donates to charity for every successful hire.

7total fee

As a digital platform, we’re able to charge a fraction of the fee of a headhunter or agency. And you only pay if you hire.

Split fairly between those who led to the hire. They can donate some, or all of this to charity.

Why Recommend

A helping hand

Your recommendations help others find work and rebuild their lives.


Startups and FTSE 100 companies alike trust us with their networks when seeking personally recommended hires.


Someone you know has thought of you for this specfic role. But, if it’s not quite right for you, is there anyone else who might be interested?


If your recommendation leads to a successful hire, you get a share of our fee. It’s our way of saying thank you.

In confidence

We’re discrete. A hirer only hears about people who actively apply for their roles – and never those who’ve been suggested but aren’t interested.
