Engage Partners, a UK provider of education and construction recruitment solutions, today announced it has chosen Talent Rover staffing and recruitment software to power its international operations.
Over the last seven months, Engage Partners and Talent Rover worked collaboratively to adapt Talent Rover’s software to meet the firm’s specific needs. The final result leverages advanced customer relationship management (CRM), applicant tracking, human resource management, and back office tools available to provide a system that provides a truly multi-sector approach and involves clients and candidates alike.
Engage Partners sees Talent Rover as a real step change in allowing them to respond even more quickly to customer demand in the global Education and Construction recruitment markets. The new solution will allow Engage to communicate their innovative brands, such as ‘iday', which enables UK schools to interview multiple pre-selected candidates in one place on one day. As the company approaches go-live of the new system, they see Talent Rover as a platform for even greater growth in a highly competitive field.
James Ockelford, Director of Education for Engage Partners, commented: “The new software solution will help Engage to achieve a real point of difference with our competitors in the Education and Construction sectors. The technology brings increased functionality for both our clients and candidates at the point of use. We think we have achieved something really special with Talent Rover, and all at Engage are really excited to use the new system and see the benefits it brings.”
Engage Partners was named Recruitment Service of the Year at the 2012 Education Investor Awards. More than 300 schools in the UK have now used ‘iday’ to place temporary and permanent staff. Talent Rover will seek to extend Engage’s remarkable growth and success by streamlining sales, recruitment and administrative tasks across Engage’s offices in the UK, Ireland, Australia and Canada.
Brandon Metcalf, Talent Rover’s COO, added: “Engage Partners is a highly successful, well regarded firm, and we're truly proud to be providing them with Talent Rover. In the short time working with Engage, we’ve really seen their business continue to grow and we’re excited to play a role in their on-going success. This is one of many opportunities for us to continue our commitment to serving not only the UK, but the global recruiting marketplace.”
