Recruitment Automations Kicking Butt: Clean Data, Speedy Processes, Less Staff, More Sales


​Recruiters need more warm calls, cleaner and compliant data, sustainable sales, and more happiness. Recruitment leaders need to grow a sustainable team of productive recruiters, and generate less of a need to hire. Which recruitment automations can make this happen?

If you are a Bullhorn client, you will be hearing about Herefish. Recruitment Marketers and leaders are excited about how it can do some serious heavy lifting in a year where we all need to get lean and mean!

As part of our Herefish implementations, we’re being asked a lot about the specifics of how recruitment automation can actually help recruiters, apart from the obvious mass marketing and communications piece. So, I’ve listed some of my recruitment automation ideas which are going down a treat with my clients.

Clean Data, Speedier Processes, Happier Recruiters, Less Need for Hiring

Covid, lockdown, home schooling – all of these disruptions have taught us a lot about Sales, marketing data, tech, hiring, staff morale, parenting!

Recruitment Automation isn't just for big recruiters - we're finding that whether our clients are a 5 or 50 person recruiter, they are needing to do more with less, build back stronger, and be more sustainable.

Candidates, clients, colleagues, and cash - here are some automation ideas for each of the 4Cs.
