Candidate Management Made Easy for 2019

By Joe Towner

Candidate management for recruitment agencies and HR teams has historically always been challenging – probably causing some of the biggest logistical headaches in the industry. Applicants can be sourced from many different platforms, each delivering disparate data in almost comical amounts.

The key to successful recruitment is being able to find the right candidate for the right job – reputations and businesses rely on it. Yet the data can be overwhelming. If your agency or business is going to get it right, data and processes need to be automated, and a centralised platform created that can make sense of all the data.

2019 is all about consumer experience

Consumer experience is a key factor in today's business world – across all industries. Recruitment agencies are personable businesses that are successful when they build good relationships with job hunters, companies and other recruitment agencies.

Candidate management processes are historically time-consuming and make tracking, updates and even searches difficult and complex. It is hard for recruiters to spend the time they need building business relationships and networks when dealing with too much admin.

Using the right software solutions can offer the key to productivity and enhance the candidate experience significantly, as they - in addition to employers, HR departments and networks - get the attention they need at the right point in the job search journey.
