CV to offer ratio

The best ROI on hiring cost & time.

Traditional hiring practices can be inefficient, high spend on cost-per-click job adverts, time wasted reviewing endless unsuitable applicants and interviewing poor quality candidates.

We include all sourcing costs in our agreed cost per hire and do all of the time consuming activities, so you only need to spend your time interviewing candidates with a high likelihood of getting hired.

We screen candidates extensively before you see them and our current CV to hire ratio is 3:1.

Why choose Hired By Startups

Building an outstanding team of highly talented people, working together towards a single vision is the single most important thing a startup Founder can do.

It's also one of the most expensive and time consuming parts of building a startup.

We exist to solve this for Founders, helping them build the best teams, quickly and without inflated recruiting fees.

We don't believe any startup should be paying traditional recruitment agency fees or be locked in to long term RPO contracts.

We're different. We're built for startups. Let us help you build yours.
