So, what's Hunted?

Hunted connects the worldโ€™s Recruitment Talent with the best companies worldwide. Traditional methods of talent acquisition in the industry are inefficient, and as a result both companies and Consultants are missing out.

Hunted lets you discover, explore and engage with the best companies and opportunities across the globe. You can see past the job description and get full access into the offices, to meet the team and understand what itโ€™s really like to work there.

Our team has a unique combination of experience. Whether that's from corporate recruitment, recruitment to recruitment or recruitment technology.

๐Ÿค” We understand the problem, it's our mission to build the perfect solution.

We're championing recruiters, and helping make recruitment a career of choice.

The Culture

We are NOT a corporate bunch.

We work hard, together and will celebrate even the small wins.ย 

Everyone at Hunted takes ownership of their job. We're always looking at new and exciting tech, sharing ideas, podcasts and the most amusing thing we've seen on LinkedIn that day.

We're dress down, every day. We've recently moved into a penthouse office in Clerkenwell to match our lofty ambitions. We've moved office 6 times in 2 years and this one is filling up fast too!

Most Fridays we down tools earlier and wander out for Lunch exploring the many culinary delights that surround us. Leather Lane is just around the corner, and with a Corporate Discount for both Gymbox and Mob45 on Friday's we deserve a treat.

Our office is kitted out with a bar, darts, table tennis, indoor basketball and a big screen showing Wimbledon, the Ashes or just the news in the background. Now that we've moved to the cool and trendy Clerkenwell district we've added some decks to the sound system.

James Silverman - Co Founder

James previously built and ran the leading global recruitment-to-recruitment company. James heads up the Talent team and is hands on helping recruiters make the most out of the platform.

We're doing something truly different at Hunted. And we've got world domination in our sights...

We're all Recruiters at heart

Our team has a unique combination of experience in corporate recruitment, recruitment to recruitment and recruitment technology. In fact, between us, we worked in the industry for 20 years, so we know what we're talking about.

๐Ÿ“ž The Founders started out at Michael Page. James then got into Recruitment to Recruitment. Tom and Steve were both once at Hays and then moved to specialist Digital and Tech recruitment companies. And our lead Talent Advocate Nina worked in recruitment to recruitment as both a Recruiter and as a Marketer.

๐Ÿ‚ One of our tech team is actually based in Whistler (the rest of us aren't jealous at all). A keen snowboarder, Chris is our Front End Engineer who started his career as a recruiter in Amsterdam.

๐Ÿ–ฅ Even our Lead Engineer Malte used to work for SThree in their IT Job board team.

So we know recruitment inside out.

Ed Hunter

Ed is our resident satirical blogger. He enjoys writing about recruitment, re-enacting famous photographs and long walks on the beach.

We believe in what we do

At Hunted, we're all passionate about working towards our vision of connecting recruiters to the most diverse and amazing opportunities. We're all passionate about the recruitment industry and believe it should be a career of choice.

Recruitment's going through an amazing period of change. There are more diverse ways of supporting clients and candidates than ever before. There's more technology impacting the lives of recruiters, but the people in the industry remain central to the success of hiring companies.

๐Ÿ”ฅ We want to help the industry thrive. How? By helping our partners attract and retain the best talent and promoting transparency to help recruiters make the best possible career decisions.

Global Reach

Hunted is based in London, the most established recruitment market in the world. But we have team members in Bali (our APAC talent advocate Isobel) and in Vietnam (our Front End Engineer Alex).

๐ŸŒ The users of our app are global and we have a huge network of talent and jobs in every developed market in the world.

We partner brands across the Americas, Asia, Australasia, Europe and the Middle East. We're excited at the prospect of overseas offices for Hunted. In fact, we're hoping some of our team in London are the pioneers who launch these operations into new markets.

Weโ€™re growing rapidly, so if youโ€™re interested in working for a truly original business, that's disrupting an industry we've got incredible opportunities on offer.

If you're someone who has versatility, loves autonomy, can think laterally and wants to achieve something massive, with an awesome team... we want to hear from you.

Tom Wish

Content Manager Tom looks after all of our content, whether it's working with partners to effectively promote their brand, writing thought provoking articles or reining in the ramblings of the wolf-man Ed Hunter.

Here's Maggie, aka Margaret when she's mischievous.


The Content

๐Ÿ˜ด Recruitment content can be boring, tired and often state the obvious. This is something we're actively trying to break.

๐Ÿ“– Our Content Manager Tom writes regular articles for our blog, as well as collaborating with some industry heavyweights like Mitch Sullivan, the pesky Wolf, Ed Hunter and of course our amazing partners.

We write articles that are different. Because we're different.

We explore the globe with Hunted Worldwide.

We impart advice with The Recruitment Clinic.

We get hacky with our Productivity series.

๐Ÿบ And there's always shenanigans when Ed Hunter's in the office.

Outside of this, our newsletter goes out to over 12k Recruiters all over the planet, and we get more signups by the hour.

It's safe to say we're not content, until everyone's read our content.

And we're in! This is our 6th new office in two years!

The Tool Kit

Hunted's a tech business at heart, solving a big recruitment problem. We're passionate about uncovering the best 'RecTech' for our community (we even write a content series about it).

We take pride in the tools we use. We invest to equip ourselves and our teams with the very best infrastructure. Wasting time is our number one pet hate. That and doing boring stuff. So we make technology do it for us.

๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ We LOVE Slack for all internal comms.

๐Ÿ“ฑ We use for all of our customer communication and messaging.

And the best tech of all... We've built our own custom CRM which literally gets better by the week.

๐Ÿ“ Got a feature request? We'll make it work. We can track huge amounts of data and get a snapshot of our talent community and updates on all processes instantly.

We face different challenges each day, like Pizza or Boxing?
