Third sector recruitment:

How can we help you?

Over the years we’ve developed a strong client base in the third sector, working with not-for-profit housing associations, international charities and a diverse range of third sector organisations to implement new recruitment software.

This means that we have a unique understanding of your sector from all angles, and are expertly placed to enhance the way you attract, engage, manage and hire candidates. What’s more, we understand your budgets, the commercial competition for talent and the challenges of hiring niche skill sets.

Whether you need to reduce your recruitment costs, engage new volunteers, or attract talent for hard-to-fill niche roles, we have the knowledge and experience to help you overcome your recruitment challenges and achieve your organisational objectives.


“Using Hireserve ATS has helped bring our volunteer recruitment into the 21st century. The team at Hireserve are fantastic. The training and support they provide is excellent, as are the communications we receive.” 

Features in Focus

Database search and talent pooling

With Hireserve’s Applicant Tracking System (ATS) database search, you can use key features such as:

  • Intelligent search with context. CVs and application documents can be ranked based on relevancy and weighting.
  • Instant CV and document view, without the need to download.
  • Searches can include keywords based on synonyms, helping you to simplify searching of unstructured text CVs and documents.

With intelligent database search features, you’ll not only save time on sifting through high volume applications but also ensure you can identify top talent quickly and effectively.

Hireserve ATS enables you to go beyond ‘applicant tracking’: Build and nurture talent pools, mine skills and qualifications you need with our uniquely powerful ‘Talent Search’ tool, and tag candidates’ skills, experience and location.

Interview Scheduler

Interview administration can be a burden on internal recruiting teams. It’s a time-consuming combination of juggling candidate and hiring managers’ diaries, and scheduling interviews over phone and email.

With Hireserve ATS, you can automate this process to become intelligent and seamless. Create an interview schedule in Hireserve ATS and candidates will be sent a link asking them to pick their slot from a range of specified times and dates. This is then confirmed in an automatic email to the candidate and all interviewers.

Ultimately, the interview scheduler gives both candidate and recruiter the flexibility necessary for an effective selection process.

“StepChange Debt Charity has worked with Hireserve for a number of years. Using the Self-select Interview tool, the charity estimates it has saved £20,000 per annum in reduced administration.”
