Recruitment Agencies Increase Candidate Engagement Through New App


After just one year since launching into the recruitment sector, My Recruit App is emerging as the UK’s leading supplier of fully-branded candidate apps designed to enable recruiters to get much closer to their existing and new candidates in an increasingly competitive candidate market.

The app has been designed by a team with more than 30 years’ recruitment experience, ensuring its functionality is geared towards creating a closer relationship with candidates and generally improving their experience within the agency market. With most  job searches now starting from a mobile device, the app will create a new dimension of communication and competitive lead for recruiters.

The app has many features including:

  • Highly targeted job alerts sent by powerful push notifications
  • Full access to your job vacancies via the app by integrating with your website
  • A bespoke candidate referral function
  • A short form candidate registration facility
  • Candidates can submit their availability daily or weekly
  • Individually designed comprehensive timesheet system

With social media now playing a big part in the recruitment market, the app will integrate with any social platform, receive RSS feeds and facilitate video content.

The perception of cost in the market

There is a perception in the market that an app designed in full corporate imagery with relevant functionality will be an expensive purchase. With a 2-year investment in developing the technology before entering the recruitment market, My Recruit App provides a fully branded app for £299 as a design and build cost and thereafter, £86 per month which includes training, technical support and access to all feature updates.

The monthly cost applies to multi-user access to the back office platform of the app where you can view the app analytics including download numbers, and the most popular app features that your candidate’s view. In simple terms therefore, its £86 per company regardless of how many consultants use the system.

For your candidates it’s a free download and a new, and innovative way to stay closer to them in this candidate driven market.  Future developments within the app will also include client engagement so the app will evolve to be a tool for recruitment companies in candidate engagement, branding and awareness, and client services.
