The Animo Group companies are able to join cord with a recurring 20% off subscriptions. The only way any company can access recurring discount is via cord’s partnership program so this is the most cost-effective way to join cord. To redeem the 20% discount, reach out to [email protected] and reference the The Animo Group partnership program.


Unlike other products, you can join cord on a flexible, month to month subscription. This means you’re not tied into long-term contracts and wont be paying for access if you have any months where you’re not hiring or if you need to prioritise other tasks. You can simply cancel your subscription from with the product and reactivate it again (still using the discount) when you’re hiring again.


The onboarding process is really simple:
