Start-up Monkey Tie is set to launch this September.

The start-up firm provides cloud-based affinity matching software for HR professionals that can be applied to recruitment and internal mobility, as well as learning and development programmes.

The system works by matching a candidate to an employer or a job based on their mutual affinities like a dating site.

To establish affinity ‘points’, the candidate answers a few questions about their personality and another set on their motivational drivers. Similarly, the employer fills in a questionnaire about the work environment and culture, and notes the type of personality generally suitable for the position in the job description. Based on this information and the traditional CV, Monkey Tie's algorithm calculates a score that reflects the degree to which the job and candidate match.
