Public sector recruitment:

How can we help you?

If you’re searching for new recruitment software and you’re in the public sector you may find you have several competing requirements for a new system: A diverse range of vacancies, from school site managers to social workers? A local community with its unique challenges and needs to support? A need for quick and cost-effective recruitment?

With 20 years in the recruitment software space, and experience working with a number of local authorities, we know staff recruitment in the public sector like the back of our hands.

We think it’s essential that you’re working with an expert from day one. Your ATS needs to be implemented precisely to meet your requirements, not the other way round. With Hireserve, you’ll be supported by someone who understands local and regional government recruitment software inside out.

Features in Focus

Data Visualisation

Hireserve ATS brings your reporting to life. Go beyond standard reports and visualise your ATS data with graphs, charts, heat maps and more.

With the Hireserve ATS data visualisation tool, you can easily create impactful graphs and charts, by using the simple drag and drop interface. You can also change your chart type with the click of a button, and highlight the data you want to drill down into.

Once you’ve settled on your format, you can download your visualisation as an image file, allowing you to drop it into any document you feel works for you.

Automated References

Collecting references can be a significant drain on time and resources. It’s often an admin-heavy process, centred on emails between your recruitment team and referees.

With Hireserve ATS, you can trigger the reference collection with ease. Automatically send a reference request to the referee’s email address and they’ll be able to complete the reference via an online form.

That then feeds back into Hireserve ATS. All communication and data takes place within the system, making it efficient, connected and secure.

With a wholly automated hiring and on-boarding process, Lincolnshire County Council has saved, on average, 18 days off the end-to-end recruitment process. Read More
