Crowdcast - Spring clean of your recruitment tech with Nathan Colman

A spring clean for your recruitment technology

In this period of ‘business as unusual’, there’s never been a better opportunity to review the tech you have and make sure it’s perfectly set-up and performing for when we do return to business as usual.

We will explore:

  • Are there gaps in your knowledge or opportunities for taking advantage of underused features functionality or introducing additional automation?

  • Are you aware of all the latest enhancements and how you could use them?

  • Have your processes changed and does the ATS support those changes?

  • Spring clean, review the scope and set-up of your ATS with your provider

Special guest, Nathan Colman, will join Giles from Jobtrain on this session. Nathan has led recruitment for some of the UK’s leading providers of education. His passion for candidate experience and recruitment transformation has been a key focus throughout his career.
