What is a Hiring Manager?

A hiring manager is an individual within an organisation that requests candidates required to fill specific roles and to whom the hired candidate will report to. With the assistance of internal talent teams or external agency recruiters, they assess the suitability of screened candidates and interview them, before making a final hiring decision. To better communicate with hiring managers, agency recruiters are able to make use of our Hiring Manager portal, offering greater visibility across the hiring process.
