FYXER Talent Pool

Who we are

FYXER LTD is an all-encompassing business and executive assistant (EA) support service. It was set up by brothers Richard and Archie Hollingsworth in 2015 to “offer executives a holistic service rather than a single employee and EA’s, flexible and remote working.”

FYXER enables business leaders to focus on what matters most. In a hybrid working world, our unique combination of great people and agile technology helps some of the fastest-growing companies reach their full potential and change the world of tomorrow.

However, FYXER is more than just a service provider. Beyond this, we become a client’s critical business partner, coach to its executives (and management teams), and champion for its mission.

Why choose us

We believe that you should be able to live your life, without sacrificing your career.

  • We are location-independent and lifestyle-inclusive (parenting, snowboarding, side hustles)
  • We have casual agreements which allow for remote working arrangements
  • We have a wide range of clients which means you can get exposure to multiple industries, stakeholders, tech, processes and ways of working
  • We’re exceptionally fast-paced and ever-changing. If you love the hustle, you’ll fit right in
  • We put our clients first but we’re also part of the FYXER community – a unique and special global group who wants to live a life out of the ordinary

What is our Talent Pool?

In simplest terms, a talent pool is a database of candidates who have already been deemed qualified for particular clients and can be offered work as soon as opportunities become available.

What does this mean for you?

It’s good news because it means you will still go through the recruitment process (assessments and interviews) and if you meet our minimum criteria, will be next in line for consideration as soon as we require more staff. Our hiring is rapid and ever-growing so chances are we’ll need you sooner, rather than later.

You will remain an active candidate on our database and we will update you on our progress monthly.
