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 specific 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.


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