What is skills-based hiring?

Skills-based hiring focuses on a candidate's key competencies and transferable and technical skills rather than their experience, education and other credentials.

Approximately 16 MILLION people are walled out of the job market because of degree requirements and other barriers to entry. Clu helps you better understand the skills you're looking for and, most importantly, helps you find them.

Improving the results of recruitment for everyone

Clu is a skills-based job marketplace shattering barriers to entry for overlooked and underutilised talent.

Clu's Inclusive Recruitment Platform™ generates a skills matrix from your job description and then matches your jobs to job seekers with those skills.

Skills-based hiring broadens your talent pools, reduces your time to hire and cements you as a leader in inclusive hiring.

Attract the talent your competitors don't know exist

Anyone can apply for any job. This wastes significant amounts of job seekers' time and damages their likelihood to apply for your vacancies again by up to 70%. 

Getting your organisation verified for skills-based hiring is a great way to stand out from the crowd and prove that you're committed to the talent, not the prestige, of your candidates. 


After getting Clu'd Up, you are supported by our team to get the most out of your skills-based hiring plans.
