Employees contribute far more to a company than their keywords.
Does the team, the group and the entire company work by having people performing their tasks in isolation, or are they all unique individuals, each with their own characteristics, working together in productive harmony, contributing towards the company culture?
Is the company the place where you have to spend your life sentence in indentured servitude?
Hopefully not, given that we are spending more years of our longer lives within its walls.
No, the company is where our daytime family lives. A place where we choose to spend time with a group of people in pursuit of a common goal.
The Job Seeker
You as a person, not just your CV bullets.
Together we will create your full CharacterISE profile.
You only need to do this once and use it for any job you wish to apply for as it will have all the relevant information to match you to the role.
Once your profile is completed, the jobs can even come to you rather than you having to search for them!
You can be an active job seeker and have your profile matched to all relevant roles, getting a ranked list with reasons why you should be interested in the role.
Alternatively you could be an opportunist job seeker where you are only notified when specific criteria on salary, level, location are met. For example if you are looking for a promotion, to go part time or to get out of the city.
Or you can simply forward your profile yourself to a specific employer or for a single role.
No more endless editing of CVs and cover letters for every role you apply to.
Your CharacterISE profile is matched to that of the employer using a far more comprehensive method than picking up keywords, eliminating the need for you to retype all the key phrases in the job specification and explain how you match up against each.
The CharacterISE profile is much farer than a CV, not discriminating against the young, old, disabled, gender or identity, but instead selecting against ability and fit.
Finding a valuable resource not just a collection of skills. Skills can be taught. The true value of an employee does not appear on their CV.
We will get to understand your company and what it needs in terms of recruits.
We actually characterise your company in a similar way to how we characterise the candidates.
We then help you to create the job specification for any given role.
Advanced AI algorithms are then able to take the characteristics profiles that accurately describe the candidates and compare their attributes to those needed for the role.
The result is a short list of candidates preselected on how well they will perform the role and benefit your company together with the unique additional benefits each candidate brings.
This is similar to the type of assessment the very best recruitment professionals used to provide to the hiring manager to guide informed decision making.
Matching CharacterISE profiles can remove the need for the very artificial interview process that often bears no relation to how the candidate will perform in the actual role.
Instead a simple chat with the candidates is then sufficient to perform final selection based on how the recruiting manager and senior staff feel the shortlisted candidates would fit in. CharacterISE can even suggest topics of conversation based on the profile matching to maximise the benefit of the meeting for both parties.
As we get to know your company better, we can even predict what types of recruits you might like and send information through on matching profiles.
Where current recruitment methods succeed
Current automated or keyword searches works just fine when recruiting narrow vertical specialists - the people focused on a single task. You might not get the best candidate, but you will get a list of some of the good ones.
Most roles, and increasingly in the future where many specialist or basic roles can be automated, either need or would benefit from a breadth of knowledge and experience.
More importantly however, fundamentally different types of people suit different roles and a person with the right characteristics but not specifically relevant experience is a far better hire for a role than an unsuitable person who just happens to have some past relevant experience.
For the roles of today and tomorrow, CV's no longer give any indication of the actual parameters that define a successful recruit.

Are current recruitment procedures providing companies or candidates with a good experience?
Add your support - help make the change.
How would you prefer to undertake the search and recruitment of your next employee?
By wading through a huge pile of applications, or by seeing a simple heatmap analysis of all the candidates strengths?
Applying for a new job? How would you like to do it?
Would you like to continue filling in application forms, or would you prefer to have a chat?
Treating people as people
Rather than eliminating them based on keywords
Fixing the critical shortage of skilled employees
By finding them rather than filtering them out.
If keyword filtering removes the best candidates at the first step...
You are always only left with a selection of poor candidates to choose from.
