The Future of Recruitment is Here.

Find the best-fit candidates. Every time.

It has never before been easier to find the most suitable candidates for roles across all different sectors. Our unique recruitment software matches the skills of applicants with skill profiles scientifically built for each job, delivering you the most powerful recruitment tool ever created.

How it Works

Job Profile

Generate an online Job Profile specific for the role. This skill profile identifies the critical and essential capabilities required for high performance in that role.

Ability Imprint

Your applicants undertake an Ability Imprint online. From this, each applicant receives a detailed assessment highlighting their best skills. Individuals undertake an Imprint once only.

Matching Engine

Our software runs the individual Ability Imprints against the unique Job Profile, providing you with a ranked list of candidates and metrics to demonstrate the individual candidate’s suitability for that role.

“If you start with the wrong capabilities, as the foundation of a job’s selection criteria, then hiring errors are inevitable, no matter how objectively good the candidates are regardless of how competent the interviewer is.”

Ross Clennett: The future of recruitment, according to Hays (and how to beat them)

What makes AbilityMap unique?

While many tools exist to analyse individual candidates, the methods used to profile jobs are often complex and based on a completely different framework. The matching process, often carried out by expensive consultants, is open to subjectivity and bias, and can be a time-intensive process.

Working on a common capability framework, AbilityMap assess both the job and the individual. It tells you what you should be looking for and when you’ve found it, finding the best fit candidates quickly and effectively.

This is what sets us apart and makes AbilityMap an incredibly powerful tool for recruitment.

What You Can Expect

If you haven’t yet realised what this technology represents for your business, then let us spell it out for you.

  • Allows you to focus and interview on the core capabilities required for high performance
  • A reduction of up to 50% of the time it takes you to screen and interview candidates, as interviewing can be done from the highest fit down. Critically important for recruiters involved in campaign recruitment.
  • Gives Hiring Managers greater confidence that you understand the job requirements, also giving them greater confidence in the quality of the applicants you present
  • Gives you a point of difference by offering a superior, scientifically based process for recruitment.

“AbilityMap dramatically reduces bad hires and has driven improved productivity and performance of my sales team. Now we are applying this to differentiate our value as recruiters to our customers.”

What Our Data Says

When a well-known, long established Australian Recruitment firm began a product trial of the AbilityMap software in late 2016, no one could predict the unbelievable results the firm would achieve over the next 12 months.

The raw statistics identified and confirmed with the CEO are:


Sales Increase

From 2016 to 2017 there was a sales increase of 50.02%, with no other major changes in process but better staff.


Increase in Fill Rates

From 2016 to 2017 the Fill Rate (% of jobs won vs % actually filled) was up from 40% to 51%.
This is a critical statistic as the increased revenue requires no additional sales effort and minimal marginal cost.


Staff Turnover Reduction

AbilityMap was introduced using the MVP version in 2017, with High Performer imprints to set the Job Profile for recruiters.

These figures are staggering and if applied across a number of recruitment companies will have a major impact on the sector.
