Ahoy Employ is the digital way for companies to connect with Trusted & Verified recruiters. Led by the founder, Luke Gass, we are bringing much-needed innovation and elevating the recruitment industry.

Ahoy Employ gives business owners a reliable place that protects them from being ripped off by unscrupulous recruitment agencies and helps them access genuine, loyal, passionate recruiters in a more authentic way. Why? Because we believe we need more honest business.

We're giving recruiters an opportunity to realize their true value and grow their businesses by encouraging them to be themselves: genuine, and authentic. Why? Because the recruitment industry has a questionable reputation and it’s not fair that all recruiters are painted with the same brush. Also, because we believe small business should be allowed to compete even where industry giants do.
