What pepelwerk’s Work Hub is not?

We are not a data source tool for you to take contact information out of in bulk. We are not a social media platform. We are not a resume databank or a traditional job board.

What should I expect from the Work Hub?

You should expect to match with real people for the jobs you want to hire. We manage the experience from sourcing to hire and grow a talent pool of people that will match with jobs and companies based on attitude, attribute and work-life fit. Our experience makes it possible for you to match, hire, and develop people and encourages a sense of urgency and accountability for both you and candidates.

You cannot download any profile information until you have hired someone.

We are not a staffing agency. We want to offer direct hire opportunities to people .
