Time to hire is significantly less than what it was before. Which ultimately is cost-saving across the business.

The support we’ve received in terms of onboarding and follow-ups has been absolutely amazing, cannot praise enough the support staff! They are always there to help and create solutions that work for us, and I’m continuously impressed with the customer service levels provided (which can be rare in this industry!).

I definitely use Hiring Manager, as I don’t have time to be managing candidates for my colleagues. It’s really powerful. It’s actually saving us time because we’ve got greater visibility of where we’re at with each process – it also gives us a bit of visibility to know where our high priority areas are.

JobAdder is in continuous development mode where we don’t have to be thinking – JobAdder is always listening to their clients and making changes. Often these are things that we hadn’t thought of, but when it comes through we think ‘that’s brilliant,’ or it helps our processes.

Working from a platform that’s intuitive and easy to use for both experienced consultants and new starters, makes training, onboarding and managing client and candidate pipelines quicker, saving time and money to generate our desired results.

You’ve got to throw yourself into these systems and work out how to use them – you can’t break JobAdder, it’s a friendly system to use, and now that I’ve found the interactive training, I know that I’m confident I’ll be able to find what I need.”

It’s definitely something that is easy to get into and it’s easy to manage people that haven’t had a lot of training as well. Our hiring managers love the Hiring Manager portal…they don’t need to recreate the wheel.

I get rave reviews about the product from the team and when they’re going out of their way to say ‘hey we finally found it’… It says everything. They’re happier and producing more and it just creates a win-win culture and a fabulous team. It’s easy to navigate your way through the JobAdder system… there is an intuitiveness to it that would lead you along the way even if you didn’t know what you were doing. There’s also a constant desire to improve the system… to create more features and benefits for those that want to participate in it.

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.
