ATS Consultancy

Choosing a new Applicant Tracking System (ATS) can be a daunting task, a huge range of suppliers, a baffling range of products and services to choose from.

We can look at your recruitment process with a fresh pair of eyes, ensuring you’re ready to implement new software, and then act as an impartial advisor through the process of shortlisting and selecting the right supplier. If you want, we’ll even sit at the back and ask difficult questions, to help you get a system that lives up to its promise and significantly improves your recruiting effectiveness.

Usability and user experience studies

Having a great careers site is one thing, but can your candidates find the information they need quickly and apply for a vacancy with minimum of fuss? We can use a range of services to make an expert review of your current site and measure how effectively candidates engage with it.

These might include focus groups, surveys, card sort exercises, eye tracking and even the latest brainwave monitoring techniques to monitor emotion, engagement and frustration levels of users on your careers site. (No really, we’re not making it up!)

What this all adds up to is a clear picture of how candidates are really using your site, which areas they look at, and more importantly which they don’t or indeed miss entirely!

CRM (Candidate Relationship Management)

Supported by technology, we’ll help you to connect with talent, manage your talent communities and increase your ability to compete for the strongest candidates in the market. Everything from a monthly newsletter, event, webcast to a virtual careers fair.


Since attrition tends to be highest during the first 6 months of employment, effective onboarding and orientation has become increasingly more important, particularly to those organisations with a handle on their ROI.

We’ll work with you to ensure that the level and quality of communication experienced by applicants during the recruitment process, is consistent with that offered during the early days of their employment. For example we’ll help develop print and communicatiuons materials, interactive onboarding sites, new joiner events and social networks for new joiners.

Candidate Literature

Organisations have focused so much on digital engagement over recent years, that the art of clear, creative and informative candidate communications seem to have fallen by the wayside.

Making an impression on prospective candidates is really important to organisations who want to recruit good people and keep hold of good talent. It’s the first impression counts mantra. From offer letters and welcome packs to first day orientation, we can help.

Social media training

If you’re a resourcer or manage a team or recruiters then you’re probably more than aware of the power of social media and how it can drive engagement and applications from candidates. But are you using it in the best way? Avoiding the potential pitfalls, ensuring your team are aware of best practice and using the right tools in the right way?

We can work with you to provide social media training workshops, create social media guidelines for your company and an acceptable use policy too.
