Its simple: We take all the hard work, and the possibility of a failed hire, off your hands.

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.

The Vinehouse average for staff staying longer than 1 year is 92%


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 which 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 which 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: 92% 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.

Because we know that rarely happens… as our clients will verify:

Perry Marshall: “We don’t engage in a hiring process without talking to Nancy.”

“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”

‘Completely Different‘

This approach is completely different to anything I have seen before and remarkably simple. I will definitely be using this process again for future hires!

‘Resumé Deception‘

I get this warm fuzzy feeling when I think that our competitors will be taking on the candidates we didn’t … just because they have good resumés! It’s just what we would have done before.

‘Better environment for everybody‘

What it’s really done is allowed people in our company to spend time on things they are good at and less time doing stuff they are not good at. … [it] has really created a better environment for everybody. We are just starting on the next vacancy and are using Vinehouse.

‘Systematic approach to job descriptions‘

The Vinehouse team was key in giving me a different, systematic way to approach developing job descriptions, posting them, screening applicants, and doing the hiring. I’ll never wake up every day yearning to recruit, but, this is no longer a persistent stumbling block.

‘Taken our business to a better place‘

…it has brought to light the strengths and weaknesses of every applicant we’ve considered, so that when we make the final decision we know exactly the kind of person we’re bringing on board. We’re sold on Vinehouse. We would not and will not hire any other way.

‘I’ll never hire someone on my own [again]...‘

The hiring process was a great deal simplified, and bottom line, I was able to hire a new Director of Client Services who had both the technical skills, and a personality that also meshed with our office culture

‘interviewed three and took two of them on!‘

The advert they put in attracted the right sort of people we were looking for. The screening process got rid of people who weren’t really interested. The application form and telephone interview told us a lot about the person before we got to the final interview.

‘...helped us create our very own HR system‘

Nancy helped me define the roles and tasks that each position required and also create a hiring system. She essentially helped us create our very own HR system for a small business. On a personal level, she provided guidance on how to be a manager and deal with different types of employees. Thank you Nancy!
