Welcome to Vinehouse Hiring: People Solutions to Help your Business Grow.


Vinehouse Hiring

Our finely tuned system will identify, introduce and hire you the most qualified people for your business. Its simple: We take all the hard work, and the possibility of a failed hire, off your hands. When you need to hire someone, our proven process ensures you interview only the most proficient additions to your team. …and if the one you choose doesn’t work out – we start again, for free! Let us show you our risk-free approach to hiring, and reveal to you the difference we have made to businesses everywhere, who are, like you, seeking ‘just the right person for the job.’

The Process Explained

Nancy Slessenger, architect of the Vinehouse Hiring Process, explains how it works…

On average, 30% of new hires leave within 1 year. (Jobvite)

The Vinehouse average for staff staying longer than 1 year is 88%

The Hiring Process Made Easy

No one excels at everything, and hiring is no exception. To do it well requires diligence, planning, research and dedication. Its one of those things a lot of people try their hand at, but without experience and knowledge of the pitfalls, it can easily waste time and money. The answer could be a hiring agency – their approach is to charge a percentage of first-year salary for their expertise in churning through CVs and filtering down to the shortlist they think you should see. They will be well paid for it, you can be sure of that, but have they really done any more than you would have done yourself if you had the time?

The Way We Do It Is Different.

We use a process that has been refined and tuned through continuous improvement over more than 20 years. Not only does it take all the work off your hands, and ensure you see only those people who match the qualities, values and skills you need, but we also charge a simple set fee so you know exactly where you stand throughout the process. It is different in many ways, but one of them is that we take less notice of your applicant’s CV than we do the application form we have crafted for them. This is a form that has been carefully worded using our unique consultancy expertise. It is tailored purely for the position you want to fill. By the time we sit down to write the questions for this form, we will have such a clear idea of the perfect person for you that we know exactly what to ask them to get useful answers back. Our skilled and highly-trained assessors match those answers against such specific criteria that only the few who might be worth meeting you, get passed on to the next stage: A recorded voice interview with us.

How we are different.

  • We don’t use resumes or CVs to sort out candidates. They can be misleading.
  • We guarantee all our candidates for 12 months.
  • We have a success rate: 88% of our hires stay longer than 12 months.
  • You only interview a very small number of candidates.
  • We do all the filtering for you, reject all the unsuccessful candidates, look after them for you, and arrange everything.
  • We give feedback to every candidate who wants it (and often get emails thanking us for it).
  • We charge a fixed fee, not a percentage of salary.
  • We’re not an agency, so we don’t have a pool of people we want to sell to you.
  • We do everything remotely.

We find new candidates specifically for each new job. We guarantee every candidate who has gone through our process for 12 months, so if they don’t work out for any reason at all, we will replace them at no extra cost to you. In this way, we make sure it’s not only in your interests, but in ours, to get you the right person for the job.

We are so sure that we will be able to find the ideal person, we give you our guarantee:

If your new hire doesn’t work out for any reason in the first 12 months, we will replace them free of charge.

The Vinehouse Guarantee

Because we know that rarely happens, as our clients will testify…

“I don’t know of any other hiring firm that charges you a fixed fee rather than a percent of salary, and I don’t know of any other hiring firms that guarantee the candidate for a year. That’s like way beyond what most people consider to be necessary. One of the biggest, biggest differentiators between great companies and mediocre ones is the great companies really get the best people.” Perry Marshall.
“I didn’t even know you can hire people efficiently in a way that allows you to dial them into the culture of the company” James P. Friel.
