We’ve been able to onboard different tools from Referoo to TalentTap. At the end of the day, consultants spend up to 90% of their day on one platform so it’s been great that they can stay within JobAdder and access all these tools.

We’re a flat structure in the HR team so to have a tool that involves the hiring manager is fantastic and makes the process more efficient.

Support has provided so much follow up. It’s not just a tick and flick ‘here’s your tool, see you later, you’ll never hear from us’. It’s been very involved and a very supportive learning environment. I could call five times a day and still hear a chirpy person on the other end of the phone ready to help me.

It was the fact that JobAdder is a full package, from both a cost and usability point of view, that was most appealing… JobAdder is also quite straightforward to use; days are busy so you don’t want to be using anything that involves a lot of steps.

We look at what jobs we have open, how long they take to fill and how much we’re saving. JobAdder Analytics saves us a ridiculous amount of time and is a brilliant system.

Aussie Locums made the switch to JobAdder over two years ago and we have not looked back. JobAdder is easy to use, great for reporting and the apps and add ons are exceptional too. Their support team is fast to respond and very friendly.

I would say we’re 2-3 times quicker getting to market now then we have been previously, our ad posting is saving us a huge amount of time. We’re getting back 200 minutes a month. JobAdder provides efficiency around back-end administration, with good responsive support and is very progressive in regards to enhancements. I have no problems recommending JobAdder because overall, it’s a system that’s really hard to beat.

The JobAdder support team are always very responsive and helpful and always follow up. I’ve connected some of our hiring managers with the JobAdder support team and they’ve been great at working through tech issues and provided a positive experience for our broader team.

JobAdder was amazing with its career update function. We’ve started using that and it’s becoming really effective. It’s allowing us to have what I’d call an automated database, as opposed to having staff ring up candidates all day long. We can send out emails to 2,000 candidates today, asking them to update their details.
