Marlin Private Staff – a boutique international recruitment agency – has introduced the platform for the private staff sector which means employers can recruit candidates quicker than before.
In an industry-first, HNWs and UHNWs can search for candidates worldwide and contact with them directly through the Marlin App by instant messenger, phone or email, anytime.
The Marlin App is free for candidates and employers who sign up can search for free and then have the option to pay the £95 per month subscription fee on a 12-month contract.

This will give them access to all of the candidates that are registered on the app, or employers can pay just £295 for 30 days, which could potentially enable an employer to recruit a full household staff team for less than £300, saving employers on agency fees.
Marlin App founder Demos Demetriou says: ‘The recruitment industry needs to change. It has been outdated for some time and needs a shakeup – a way to streamline and cut costs is needed.
‘It means essentially cutting out the middle man completely and putting the employer directly in touch with the candidate, who will still be screened by us. Personal contact details, previous work history and all of that can be directly filled in by candidates on the Marlin App.
‘Revolutionising the private staffing sector is no easy task, but so far our clients have loved what we have done. Uber have done it for transport, AirBnB for accommodation. We are doing the same for the recruitment industry.’
