About Us

Recruiting isn’t magic. It’s hard work.
We created Candidly to make it easy.

We understand. When scaling a start-up, we all need talented teams to help drive our business forward. The problem is, the recruitment process takes up time – the one thing we need more of.

Sure, you can call in the recruitment agencies, but you don’t want to do that every time – and you’d like to save more money for scaling up. If only you could keep recruitment in-house, and have some expert guidance along the way. Spoiler alert: you can.

Meet our Founders

Both Alex and Hannah have honed their skills over two decades, working in recruitment and top-notch businesses nationally and internationally.

Alex’s roles have included Benelux European Sales Director of Dice and Head of Sales at HR-Tech startup Tempo, where she helped prepare the team for scalable growth after completion of their Series A funding round.

Meanwhile, Hannah worked as a recruitment consultant for many years and founded and sold the world’s largest energy careers platform. Having grown her own tech scale-up, she implicitly knows the challenges of finding and hiring brilliant people.

Outside of work, Alex is a keen traveller. Although she’s settled in Amsterdam, USA and Germany over the years, (she even swapped the hustle and bustle of London for the Suffolk countryside during lockdown), she’s currently enjoying life in the vibrant Finsbury Park, where she can be found exploring the market, hitting the gym and sharpening her culinary skills – FYI she’s a huge Chelsea fan, so we have no idea why she chose to move so close to the Emirates Stadium.Her next adventure? Tulum, in Mexico, for beaches, sun and delicious food. Heaven!

Hannah’s adventures are far from a Mexican beach. When she’s not running the latest London Tech Ladies event, she’s running after her little ones Albie & Adya, who are, well, non-stop.
That said, she still makes time for climbing mountains, sharing Pinot Grigio with good friends and switching off her brain with a bit of trash TV. Ask her about the latest Love Island series or I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here. She’d like that!

The important stuff!

As you can probably tell, time is precious to us. Which is why we’re so passionate about making Candidly work for as many scale-ups as possible. After all, the less time we spend on recruitment admin, the more time we can spend kicking a football with our little ones, shouting from the stands at Stamford Bridge (Alex knows all about that), or getting our businesses off the ground.

So take a closer look at Candidly. And let’s see how we can reclaim your time for the stuff that really matters.
