We’re passionate about delivering CRMFirst strategies for recruitment.

We work with recruiters to make their CRM “first” in their sourcing, lead generation, candidate nurturing, recruiter retention.  Don’t you want your clients, candidates and recruiters to use you (and your CRM) first?

  • 90% of recruitment leaders think that their CRM is their recruiters’ first port of call (but only 17% of recruiters actually do this)
  • 50% of recruitment leaders know their data isn’t ready for GDPR
  • 76% of recruitment marketers can’t use their CRM for marketing (poor data, lack of workflow, lack of sales and marketing integration)
  • Recruiters are spending 50% of their day sourcing externally and ignoring the talent pool that is their CRM

Your CRM is the beating heart of your recruitment business – it can deliver increase profit, business growth and ROI.  It can be your USP, your candidate generator, your lead converter, your recruiter attractor.

Engaged Recruiters Delivering

Only 17% of recruiters use their CRM first!

You want your recruiters to be more successful and deliver ROI (return on investment) from your systems.

This is what we see:

  • Your CRM usage and data quality is poor
  • You seem to be buying more and more technology (but placing less vacancies)
  • Your recruiters are spending too long on systems and not on the phone
  • All of the above creates more risk for GDPR

I am confident that my team and I are using my CRM effectively and I feel in a much better position to compete.

We deliver recruitment training to drive a CRMFirst culture.  Have a call with us now, or surf the recruitment training workshops we deliver.

Recruitment Technology ROI

Only 10% of recruitment leaders would rate their CRM 5 stars for efficiency, and only 15% are completely happy with their recruitment software.

Perhaps you feel you have too much technology?  Are your recruiters engaged and delivering,  or paralysed by options?

Having a CRMFirst strategy limits the need for tech overload and profits spent on unused tech.

Your Recruitment CRM Strategy is critical to the growth and profitability of your recruitment business. Change doesn’t happen simply because you buy new recruitment software.

Barclay Jones have contributed a huge amount to our strategic and operational process and have helped to grow the business for the future.

Do you want a viable USP for your recruitment business?  Do you want your systems to be valued by your recruiters, clients, candidates?  Check out our Recruitment Technology ROI offering or request a call back.
