Myth Busters

The pool containing the 75% are happily working for your competitors. You just don’t know how to reach them.

There isn’t a skills shortage


The job market contains two candidate pools:

The 25% pool… The candidates actively using job websites, who reply to your adverts and are sent to you by agencies. They’re often the usual suspects. Many are looking for a reason…

The 75% pool… The candidates who aren’t looking – the successful, achieving and committed employees that businesses really want. This is the pool you think you’re still reaching when you use recruitment agencies or advertising, but you’re not.

How to get to the 75%

Focus your thinking

Two pools = Three solutions

Option One: Cost-effective hiring in the 25% pool. Don’t waste money on agencies. Our job advertising service is more effective, for a fraction of the price.

Option Two: Time and quality-focused recruitment in 75% pool. Exclusive, consultative headhunting. Lasting success guaranteed via a 100% money-back guarantee and a 12-month free replacement service.

Option Three: The best of both worlds: Access both pools at once – the ones who are looking and the ones who aren’t. This is great for building your brand and getting your name out there, whilst still focusing on time constraints.

Which One Do I Need?


  • “There is a skills shortage”
  • “Nobody is looking”
  • “We Don’t pay enough”
  • “There’s nobody in our location”
  • “Advertising doesn’t work”

It's not what you do

  • People aren't interested in what you do, how you do it and when you were established when they start looking for new role.

    People join businesses because of something more. Something intangible. Something unique. It's not about buzzwords or algorithms or giving it to an agency who "specialise in what we do." What you do is unique. Who you are is unique. Why you do what you do is unique.

    Culture and brand have to be aligned. Knowing how to attract the right people who share your values and purpose is about culture and branding. Why would somebody get out of bed in the morning to join you?

    We specialise in finding the magic within each role, as well as the uniqueness of each business. We know how to translate it into the words that will attract the right people.

    This is cultural matching. This is brand alignment.

    There isn't a skills-shortage, we prove that time after time.
