Revolutionary Job Platform Levels the Playing Field for Jobseekers


Ending the 'Jobs for the Boys' Mentality

Often, landing your dream job is more about who you know rather than what you know. With candidates being nine times more likely to get hired through referrals, what happens if you don't have the right connections? Enter, an innovative platform changing the game.

How it Works

At Jointangent, jobseekers submit short video pitches that are reviewed by current employees at companies signed up on the platform. These employees then recommend suitable candidates for roles within their firms. The platform also connects jobseekers with mentors from top companies like Amazon and Revolut, making referrals more accessible to everyone.

Breaking Barriers in Hiring

Co-founders Gary Izunwa and Joe Adams created Jointangent to address the unfair advantage that privileged networks often have in the job market. Coming from working-class backgrounds themselves, they aim to make hiring fairer by focusing on skills and potential rather than connections.

Preventing Burnout in the Workplace

With stress levels high among UK employees, it's crucial to address burnout in the workplace. HR and management specialist Christine Macdonald shares essential steps to recognize and combat burnout, including seeking help, talking to colleagues, and putting your mental health first.

Opportunities for Growth

From job openings in vehicle technicians to bricklaying apprenticeships, there are various opportunities for career development across the UK. Companies like Enterprise Flex-E-Rent and Keepmoat are actively recruiting, providing avenues for individuals to explore new career paths.

Empowering Women in Tech

Amazon's Future Engineer Bursary programme is offering up to £20,000 in financial support for women from low-income households to pursue engineering careers. With a focus on diversifying the tech workforce, this initiative aims to break down barriers and support the next generation of female tech talent.

Building a Brighter Future

Initiatives like CanTeam are transforming school canteens into community hubs, teaching hospitality skills to young people and creating opportunities for growth. With a vision to expand nationwide, these programs are paving the way for a brighter future for students across the UK.
