Generate high-quality shortlists at the touch of a button. The Hiring Circle platform helps in-house talent acquisition teams, recruitment consultancies and executive search firms attract and engage with more relevant talent, faster.
Attract and hire the best talent
Hiring Circle casts the net wide, removes many of the limitations of typical recruitment processes and often uncovers outstanding candidates that may have been 'off the radar' in a traditional process. Please get in touch for further details of our pricing options.
How it Works
Post your role on the site. You can upload a video to add more colour to the opportunity and include compulsory qualifying questions where appropriate. Roles can be employer branded or more discreet when required.
Relevant candidates are notified. They can apply or recommend someone within their network. Anyone requiring further information can ask an anonymous question or reveal their profile to request a conversation.
Filter and sort applications by employer type, level and/or skills to effortlessly review the most relevant CVs. All applications include full compensations details, notice period and experience summary.
The Hiring Circle platform has consistently produced exceptional shortlists and helped its thousands of members secure interviews and positions at leading advisory firms and credit and private equity funds. Take a look at some of our success stories.
How is Hiring Circle different from other job boards?
Hiring Circle is different in many ways. We advertise live roles and provide career advice and up-to-date market insights in the banking, finance and accounting space. Only candidates who have been approved by us are able to access the platform thereby cutting down irrelevant CVs. We are proactive about ensuring the right candidates are registered on the platform. Unlike other job boards that advertise hundreds of roles from around the City, Hiring Circle is focused on a specific industry niche thereby making the candidate population and roles on the platform better aligned. All our team are ex-recruitment consultants and / or industry professionals who are always on hand to help. Hiring Circle is a modern online job board and career platform, enhanced by a Human touch.
How much does it cost?
We have a range of Recruiter packages designed to fit specific needs; from posting one role per quarter, to a regular daily flow of roles. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your requirements with a member of our team.
Can I search a candidate database?
It is not possible to search the full candidate database. A big part of why candidates feel confident working with Hiring Circle is because it is totally confidential and puts them in control of who sees their CV. Having said that, once you have posted any roles you have full access to those candidates who have applied. Also, candidates who are interested in your role but not ready to apply can contact you via the platform and you will be able to review their details before committing to replying.
If I've got roles advertised on the site, will I also be committed to posting content regularly? I haven’t got time to write regular articles.
There is no commitment to contributing content, but of course the more active you are, the more candidates are informed about your business. Our team can always help with ideas as we get regular requests from candidates; content can range from anything from one-line quotes to full articles and interviews.
Can I contribute content if I don’t have a role to post?
Yes of course – we welcome any interesting and relevant content from our community and it’s a great way to engage with thousands of candidates. This could be in the form of interviews or articles, or even a video of someone from your business talking about what you do, the culture of your business etc.
I see candidates can request calls and ask questions. Will I be inundated with calls and messages from candidates?
Candidates can indeed request calls and ask questions about roles. However, during the process of posting a role you will be asked whether questions will be directed to you or a member of the HC Admin team. We are very happy to help field questions with prior discussion with you. As former headhunters we know you need to prioritise your time so if a candidate requests a call with you (to discuss a role), you’ll be able to see details of their profile before committing.
Will you run the interview process for me?
In short; no. We are a job board and career platform rather than a recruitment firm. We focus on identifying relevant candidates to join our platform, creating inspiring and informative content to help them in their careers and notifying them about relevant opportunities. Our mission is to connect the right candidates with the right roles; once an application has been made, the process is over to you.
I'm a hiring manager at an investment bank and we already work with a number of recruitment firms. Why should I use you?
Hiring Circle is not a recruitment firm. We are an online platform facilitating the introduction of candidates to employers and vice versa within the defined niche of banking, investing and accounting and finance. As candidates get screened for relevance before they are even accepted onto the platform, you know that you will not be wading through hundreds of irrelevant CVs. We are an excellent source of candidates and in fact recruitment firms use our services too. We work with recruitment firms rather than competing with them. We are used by in-house hiring managers and HR teams, as well as recruitment firms and head hunters.
Will other hiring managers and recruitment firms be able to see the roles I'm posting?
No, all roles are hidden from other Employer / Recruiter users.
I'm recruiting for a highly confidential role. Do I have to display the employer?
No – there is an option to advertise your role confidentially as we understand that this is sometimes necessary. However, we recommend you disclose the employer whenever possible as our stats show that the response rate is better for branding roles.
