Top Five Percent is the brainchild of Hasib Howlader: business owner, insolvency practitioner, chartered accountant and chartered tax advisor. Hasib designed our proprietary T5 testing software after struggling to recruit good people into his own group of businesses.

We understand what effective recruitment looks like, and it’s our job to take the strain out of hiring the best people into your business.

Our process

We understand your requirements



One of our expert team will visit you in person, to get a feel for your company’s working culture and environment, and make sure we understand your requirements. We’ll generally offer tailored, consultative feedback at this stage, including advice on salary and package benchmarking, competitor intelligence, and a snapshot of the market. We’ll leave with a firm brief and you’ll have a clear understanding of our deliverables, commitments, and timelines.

We provide you with a tailored shortlist



We’ll provide you with a perfectly curated shortlist of the very best candidates for your roles, along with their testing results to enable you to build an accurate picture of their strengths, skillset and personality type. We aim to shortlist within 48 hours, but due to the nature of the testing process this can sometimes take longer if you ask us to include tailored tests.

We guide you through interview and offer stage



We will expertly manage every step of the recruitment process on your behalf, from arranging interviews (and providing additional panel interview members if required), to offer stage, negotiation and counter-offer management. Once you have decided who you want to hire, we’ll do our utmost to ensure you secure them on terms that work for your business.
