Hopping Across The North East From Hub To Hub

Launch of Loop Not Luck – the first job board designed specifically to connect underrepresented candidates to tailored career opportunities


Announcing the launch of Loop Not Luck – the UK’s first intersectional diversity recruiting platform specifically designed to represent and connect diverse talent.

Loop Not Luck was built with the mission of improving social mobility across the United Kingdom by connecting underrepresented candidates to tailored career opportunities. Loop Not Luck works with junior candidates and covers all industries.

For business, investing in diversity isn’t just the right thing to do. It improves profitability, increases the likelihood of capturing new markets, boosts innovation and creates a positive company culture.

Loop Not Luck helps companies to improve their diversity without compromising on the quality of talent whether it is gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, social mobility or disability.  It does this by giving these often underrepresented candidates access to carefully curated jobs that are the right fit for them and the business employing them.

Loop Not Luck’s in-house state of the art technology harnesses hundreds of self-identified data points giving candidates a curated shortlist of opportunities, and companies a tailored list of potential applicants – all while completely avoiding the potential for AI bias. This is simply summarised with a personalised percentage match, letting candidates know how closely they are predicted to suit the role. This means that employers get applications from diverse, high quality, interested and qualified candidates. And candidates receive recommended opportunities that are tailored to their values, interests, qualifications, working styles and more.

The automated system means opportunities and candidates are carefully targeted and matched. So, for candidates, no more endless scrolling searching for the right job, and for employers, no more sifting through piles of pointless CVs to find the ones that are right for you.

Candidates are provided only with their highest quality matches, rather than 1000s of roles that may not be suited to them and that they are unlikely to secure. This streamlined process saves employers time and money, whilst allowing them to reduce their time to hire and cost per hire.

Loop Not Luck has designed and built the future of job boards – optimising the process for both candidates and companies.

“I realised that businesses were missing out on amazing candidates because they didn’t know how to reach them. Diversity doesn’t mean compromising on the quality of talent. In fact, most of our customers have found the opposite to be true.” says Sydney Samuels, Founder & CEO of Loop Not Luck

“We’ve harnessed the power of technology to make it as easy as possible for businesses to find high quality diverse applicants and to simplify the job hunt for candidates who have the potential, skills and grit but do not have a pre-existing network to tap into.”

Loop Not Luck has built a talent partnership network of over 50 organisations across the United Kingdom, from small businesses to recognisable names such as The Economist Group, and has attracted over 16,000+ candidates.

Loop Not Luck

Loop Not Luck was founded by Sydney Samuels to address the twin issues of diverse early-stage job seekers finding it difficult to access opportunities and employers struggling to find diverse talent. Using advanced technology to match candidates to jobs, Loop Not Luck is on a mission to improve social mobility across the United Kingdom by connecting underrepresented candidates to tailored career opportunities. Loop Not Luck works exclusively with candidates with 0-3 years’ job experience, often the sector that finds it most difficult to access jobs.
