Honest Work

A better, more transparent standard for job advertising

We have spent the past decade in London building great teams. We are applying that experience to improving the process of discovering transparent companies.

The best people won’t apply because because your job is a slightly different colour to the other jobs. The best people apply because you are embracing honesty and transparency.

The founder is one of the best talent people in the UK (or even the world), so he understands what both sides want. More importantly, they understand what is right and wrong from a candidate perspective, so they are aiming to make the whole experience much better from a candidate perspective.

Pros:

More transparent than pretty much every other recruitment website.

Cons:

None really. Obviously, they've just launched so more jobs...

The founders get what candidates look for in a job post:

- How much will you pay me?

- Will you let me work from home?

- What other benefits will you give me?

- How long will this interview process take?

And they've reflected that in their job postings. Also the dog mascot is cute.

Pros:

transparency about salaries and the interview process

Cons:

mostly dev jobs at the moment- but it's only day 1

This philosophy of honesty and integrity is a true disruption to the hyperbole world of recruitment. Sterling work!

- Great Philosophy

- Clear Pricing (£200 btw)

Nothing obvious yet..

I've been keeping a keen eye on the progress of this board for some time now. Anyone who has worked in this industry for any amount of time will surely have faced the same frustrations on their job hunt. Lack of transparency re: salary, interview process etc. Add to this the fact the founder is one of the soundest people in the business with a wealth of experience matching deserving candidates to deserving employers, the platform should see a wealth of high quality candidates and companies flock to it.

Pros:

Balances candidate and employer requirements extremely well. Not just for devs. Philosophy of transparency.

Cons:

Brand new board, more jobs will surely follow.

Curious to hear about how you encourage employers to be transparent - I often see a disconnect between how brands want to be perceived and how they actually operate internally. @tomspeak_ @steviebuckley

Building a more transparent job board
@abadesi This is a great question. The data supporting the fact that vacancies with real salary ranges perform better really is overwhelming. So much so that the worlds biggest job boards are imploring companies to post a salary when advertising a job yet very few boards actually enforce this. When posting a job on Honest Work, the salary field and field for interview steps are mandatory. In our own experience we have seen more and more companies embrace the fact that posting a salary results in more applicable candidates applying for their jobs.
