    They charge 199 a year for membership and the owner is involved in 670 companies (according to companies house). Hmm.

    They have no less than 5 roles on their website, probably fake anyway certainly worth the 199

    I can't see how a model which places an upfront fee on the consultant could ever work. Even if a few people sign up, the hiring companies will have access to such a small pool that they won't stand a chance of getting good quality candidates. Therefore few jobs will be posted and it will never provide value to the consultant either.

    Looks like a scheme to make the owner rich by attracting a few suckers who think they're buying into exclusivity, like the day-trading platforms charging hundreds per month so fools can pay fees while losing their money.

    Default Considering a punt

    First impressions are that the business model might be a sound one. By us paying an annual fee and removing the agency costs that might be prohibitive for clients it could work both ways. I might give it a punt when I get some cash in. I will post on this thread my experiences IF I do.

    Someone registers a handle just to say s/he may give it a punt - sounds dodgy

    It's not a punt, which implies it's a long shot but may pay off... tell you what give me the 199 and I'll give you some magic beans, worth a punt?
