About Digital Profile

There is a better way to do recruitment. Daily calls and emails from recruiters with little understanding of our needs, always pushing payment models that have little correlation to value added.

This platform is our response. We are on a mission to overhaul recruitment. For a start, we don’t accept recruiters on the site - just people and companies only.

Our philosophy is that in the modern industry finding a good cultural fit is essential, which is why companies will have profiles as well as the professionals searching for jobs. Because this isn’t a social network, individual Profiles are private and only seen by companies to whom a user has applied.

Our vision is of a platform that intelligently matches individuals to the right jobs. We intend to address one of the core problems of recruitment agencies, namely that they so rarely understand a business in order to find the right candidates. By integrating machine learning and smart algorithms, Digital Profile will do that for you.

As much as Digital Profile is a new competitor in this space, it is also a call for change in an industry that is crying out for a new way of doing things. Our product development roadmap is our manifesto for an overhauled recruitment process that suits the needs of professionals. As professionals ourselves, we think we are well placed to achieve that.

Thanks for being part of the journey.
