Why was AllianceQ formed?

Our member employers are tired of the fragmented, expensive and proprietary nature of recruitment, where barriers are placed between job seekers and jobs in the name of revenue.

Our employer members realize that together they are the biggest force in recruiting – they have all the jobs and the resources – and if they collaborate, they are the market and they can set the rules.

Our mission statement

Read our core beliefs
  • Represent the highest standard in recruitment that employers aspire to reach, and job seekers demand
  • Work to continually remove barriers from recruitment
  • Strive to continually look for ways to improve the candidate experience
  • Foster an open 'inclusive' recruitment ecosystem where everyone can participate
  • Substantially reduce the time and cost of recruitment for both our employer members and job seekers
