In recruitment, moving candidates through the pipeline quickly is important. Not only does it help recruiters fill more roles, but it also creates a better candidate experience, and reduces the chance of losing talent to competitors.

Zapier is an online automation tool that allows you to connect JobAdder to the tools you already use, in order to automate repetitive tasks. It means you can focus on tasks that make you money, whilst engaging candidates. What’s more, with Zapier’s simple user interface, anyone can create a connection between JobAdder and another product to improve their workflow.

Perhaps you want to automate the process of responding to candidates who apply for roles, or send interview reminders. Maybe you want to automatically send candidate data from JobAdder to spreadsheets or vice versa. You might want to connect JobAdder to Slack. The possibilities are endless!
