The Search Party

A disruptor - challenging the traditional recruitment process, reducing the average time to hire a candidate to just 12 days, compared with the 81 day industry average

When founded in 2011 the Search Party wanted to develop technology that would increase productivity and efficiency in the recruitment business. By Q2/ 2014 it offers more than seven million verified candidates, to 200 signed-up employers and recruitment agencies, in two countries.

Australian start-ups are successfully disrupting business models within our behemoths and out in the marketplace. Defining itself as a ‘positive disruptor’, the Search Party uses big data algorithms and a smart negotiation/settlement platform to bring value to businesses, candidates and the recruitment industry.

It has slashed the time it takes to hire to 12 days from an 81 day average, dramatically reducing the cost to hire, and broadened Australia’s and the UK’s access to talent.
