The Game

We know that both job seeking and hiring can be testing processes, so we aim to demonstrate empathy throughout to make the process as pleasant as possible.
For candidates, this includes things such as CV feedback, frequent updates and detailed interview preparation.
For clients, it’s things such as supporting CVs with detailed market insights around the perception of the employer brand & candidate experience, salary data and proposals around how to open to brief to new candidate pools if needed.
What’s great is that over 75% of our clients started life as our candidates. We’re really encouraged by this and see it as true validation of the merits of our approach.
