100,000 people start a new job in the UK every week. Half will fail – and 90% of those failures are a result of misaligned soft skills.

We are a SaaS solution which enables hiring managers to identify what soft skills are needed for a role and quickly assesses candidates against those specific skills.

We’re a strong team driving amazing traction: we have 8 clients, over £20,000 of revenue, angel investment, a full time team of 8, MVP and onward client referrals.
