Candidate Management Technology

Central to delivering a candidate management strategy is having the right technology. 

Candidate management systems are software platforms specifically designed for the purpose of assisting with the recruitment process, from initial candidate attraction all the way to onboarding.

Functionality on Amberjack’s Volume Hiring Platform includes managing job postings and listings, CV and online application management, hosting digital assessments, interviewing scheduling and co-ordination, delivery of virtual assessment centres and on-boarding management.

For volume hiring campaigns, it is critical that organisations have a robust and, where necessary, a bespoke candidate management platform in place.

The Benefits of Candidate Management Systems

Smart Automation Processes

The right candidate management process, facilitated by an advanced applicant tracking system, can help reduce stress in recruitment by automating many of the time-consuming tasks. 

These can include job postings, event listings, screening applications and candidate communications. 

This leaves recruiters with more time to focus on the right candidates and reduce risks of mistakes.

Enhanced Decision Making

Opportunities for unconscious bias are drastically reduced, creating a more level playing field. 

In addition, Amberjack’s candidate management services can save recruiters hours of time.

This means they can focus their attention on the latter stages of the process, engaging with candidates who are best suited to their organisation.

Better Candidate Experience

Candidate management platforms, like a candidate tracking system, make it easy for candidates to apply, track progress, and take control by booking their own interview slots. 

They can also have a personalised experience through automated communications and follow-ups. 

Candidates always stay up-to-date and have 24/7 support, allowing for better management of candidate relationships.


Improved Efficiencies

Candidate management platforms can improve efficiency by automating tasks and providing users with the ability to track the progress of candidates through the recruiting process. 

This way, you can see which candidates are ready for interviews, which ones need more work, and so on. This makes the pipeline much easier to manage.

More advanced candidate management systems will also allow organisations to host video interviews and virtual candidate assessment centres and can provide real-time, in-depth data and reporting.

Seamless Onboarding

Our candidate management services make onboarding much easier by providing digital forms that can easily be completed and stored. 

In addition, most systems for managing candidate relationships come with onboarding checklists that can be used and areas which allow candidates to connect with other new joiners and be kept up to speed with organisational news.

This way you can be confident that your new hire will stay engaged and have a seamless transition into the company.

How to Achieve Effective Candidate Management

Clearly Defined Recruitment Process

A key method to manage candidates effectively is providing an informative and educational recruitment experience.

Allowing candidates to gain a better understanding of your organisation and the role they are applying to will ultimately lead to better quality candidates later in the process.

Having a robust and clearly defined recruitment process with clear guidance for each stage will also enable candidates to plan effectively and ensure their expectations are met.

Tailored Communications Plan

Multiple stage recruitment processes, especially those in the Early Careers and Future Talent space can take weeks to complete. 

From initial application through to the offer, it can often take several months. This is why managing the candidate pipeline is so important.

In order for candidates to stay engaged in the process, developing a bespoke communications plan is extremely important. 

The more personalised you can make this to the individual, the stronger the likelihood that they will complete the process.

Support and Feedback

Recruitment processes can be complicated and for those who are new to the employment market, especially Apprentices and Graduates, it can be daunting. 

Providing detailed information of what is expected of candidates at each stage of the process, what you are assessing them for and how they can prepare will all help them to perform to their best ability.

This is an essential part of our candidate management service. 

While it can be challenging and time-consuming to give feedback to candidates, it shows your organisation is dedicated to helping individuals develop (despite the outcome). It will also place you in front of many of your competitors.

Optimised Team and Resource

Candidate management in recruitment requires the right technology, people skills and experience. 

By using intelligent automation to manage more standard parts of the recruitment process, teams can often focus their attention and efforts on the latter stages.

This means that more time and attention is paid to those candidates most likely to succeed. 

Many organisations also use outsourcing to help them deliver their process efficiently and effectively.
