Businesses will be able to capture every candidate and make the right hire faster.

Reed.co.uk, one of the UK’s leading jobs marketplaces, and JobAdder, the global recruitment software provider, have today announced a new partnership that will deliver jobseekers an integrated application process.

Coined as ‘Direct Apply’, the partnership will offer a seamless approach for candidates when applying for a job on Reed.co.uk – delivering efficiency gains to businesses that use JobAdder to manage their recruitment programmes. Candidates will complete their application on Reed.co.uk. Reed.co.uk will then automatically send the application, along with associated documentation such as CVs and covering letters, straight to a business’ JobAdder account.

This integration will enable businesses to:
● Capture every candidate
● Track their hiring funnel
● Find the right candidate faster

With reports of skills shortages and subdued candidate activity being witnessed across the recruitment industry, the partnership between Reed.co.uk and JobAdder will provide a smoother, more enjoyable experience for candidates – at a time when candidate experience is becoming a critical business priority for many.

Simon Wingate, Managing Director at Reed.co.uk, comments: “We’re pleased to see Direct Apply launch with JobAdder – and at such a crucial time for the recruitment industry, too. We place equal importance on both candidate experience and recruiter experience and we’re confident that this integration will provide new benefits to both parties.”

Charlotte Jackson, Partnerships & Integrations at JobAdder, adds: “We’re excited to offer the Direct Apply integration to our customers. We’ve always been committed to reducing the steps that recruiters and candidates take using JobAdder, and improving the experience for all. This integration is a significant win for both sides”.
