Headstart allows Recruiters to spend their time more efficiently, reviewing those candidates who are best suited to a given role first, and therefore freeing resources that can be used to find candidates who would not ordinarily get a chance to shine. Headstart’s system seeks to remove unconscious bias, where a Recruiter cannot.

Guiding Principles

Students First

As students ourselves, our mission in creating Headstart stems from the frustrations we felt when applying for internships and graduate schemes. We are tired of the long application forms, and the lack of clarity in job descriptions today. We want to change the way in which students find their desired careers.

Simplify Through Innovation

Our goal is to make life easier for both students and companies. For us, this means that we must continue to innovate so that we can maintain a product that truly helps. If there is a feature you want on Headstart, let us make it for you! We don't outsource our development like many of our counterparts so if you want it, we can make it.

Emphasise Diversity

Our view is that, to date, employment has been too rigid and formulaic. We support diversity and have moved away from ‘background’ selection to skill-based selection. This is reflected wholeheartedly in our app, which promotes students who have the right skills for a job, rather than with the right ‘background’.

Feedback Welcome

Contact us! We want to hear from you. Whether it is to give us a compliment or to give us some constructive feedback, we want to know how you feel. After all, we are here for you, and we can’t help unless we know what you need!
