Have you ever felt that you haven’t been given the full picture when working with a recruiter? Or you’ve been responsible for hiring a team and then been hit with a big recruitment bill at the end? Have you struggled to land a job in London and watched your friends go through the same challenges?   

Welfound is challenging the recruitment norm, giving Accounting and Finance professionals in London the power to refer one another directly to jobs. By taking the recruiter out of the equation, getting the right people into the right roles is left to a community of those who understand the industry best. Whenever a candidate is successfully placed, half the recruitment fee will go directly to the referrer.

Welfound won’t just reward the referrers in the community, it will provide a much more cost-effective recruitment solution for companies. By removing the need of an external recruitment agency, Welfound will reduce recruitment spend, while improving the quality of each new hire. 82% of employers rated referred candidates above all other sources for generating the best return on investment (Source: Careerbuilder). 

In a nutshell, Welfound provides a transparent platform for both companies and the community to make mutually beneficial connections. With bespoke dashboards, forums and feedback loops tailored to each company or person’s needs, everyone knows exactly where they are throughout the recruitment process and is held accountable for their part in it.

Shannon is a Kiwi who has been living in London since 2015. With a background in recruitment he has experienced the good, the bad and the ugly sides of the industry. In his early years as a recruiter, Shannon always struggled to get on board with the practice of “selling” people, without their best interests in mind. Most recently he has been helping many Kiwis and Aussies get set up to work in London as contractors. After hearing the same recruitment stories over and over again from disgruntled Antipodeans, he started to develop the idea of community-based recruitment, now known as Welfound.
