Talent Bear – The Recruitment Search Engine

January 30th, 2013

We’ve just launched Talent Bear ( – a simple search engine which can be used to find potential candidates on LinkedIn. It uses the power of Google to find public profiles using the search terms you enter, without the restrictions of the built-in LinkedIn search or having to write complicated search patterns.

It’s completely free, so we hope it will be a useful tool for recruiters. Any feedback is greatly appreciated as we are happy to add/tweak the features to improve the search results.

The Independent Recruiting Group

October 11th, 2012

We are excited to announce that we have become an official sponsor of The Independent Recruiting Group.

Becoming a sponsor of the IRG seemed like a natural path to take, especially as we are so keen to support start-ups. Recruit So Simple’s sole purpose is to bring simplicity to the recruitment software market,  something which all recruitment agencies and HR departments can benefit from.

Sean O’Donoghue, Founder & Chairman of the IRG had this to say:

“The IRG are extremely delighted to welcome Recruit So Simple as an Official Sponsor. They are a young company like ourselves, which isn’t the only thing they have in common with us – they are also forward thinking too. With lots of recruitment software products to choose from, it can be difficult to know where to start. Recruit So Simple have made their offering as simple as possible: all the features a typical recruitment agency could need, packaged up for one great value price – perfect for the smaller agency! We look forward to recommending Recruit So Simple to our members, and to forming a long lasting partnership for the future”.

Communication Made Simple

September 24th, 2012

Keeping in touch with your candidates and clients is extremely important, that’s why we’ve designed Recruit So Simple from the ground up to ensure that communicating is easy. Using our online recruitment software, email and SMS messages can be sent to your candidates and clients directly from within the system, where they are then automatically logged against the relevant record.

When sending bulk email and SMS messages you can save time by using templates (defined by you) and personalise the content by using merge fields, which can display the recipient’s name and title. You can also add signatures and customise the fonts/colours just like any other email system.

Recruit So Simple’s built-in email system also gives you the ability to automatically log emails received from candidates and clients. You can parse and import CVs directly from within the inbox and add unknown recipients as contacts with one click.

We’re always working on improving the system, making it easier to use and adding more features. We’re committed to maintaining Recruit So Simple as the UK’s leading online recruitment software product.

Using Automation to Save Time

July 19th, 2012

Today we have launched an update to our online recruitment software that improves the automation system. In Recruit So Simple you can automate tasks, emails and SMS messages when specific events occur in the system.

As an example, you could configure the system so that when an interview is added, the candidate will automatically be emailed with their interview location and time. Another example, is to have the system automatically assign a task to a client when a placement occurs, so you’ll have a reminder to contact them a certain number of days after the placement. The automation system is flexible and can be used in many different ways, dramatically reducing the time you spend on administration.

We’re always working on improving the system, making it easier to use and adding more features. We’re committed to maintaining Recruit So Simple as the UK’s leading online recruitment software product.

Displaying Jobs On Your Website

May 29th, 2012

Integrating your recruitment software with your website is an essential part of increasing the number of quality candidates that can find and apply for your jobs. While developing Recruit So Simple we wanted to include this functionality as standard, and at no extra cost. Using our website integration features you can do the following:

  • Display selected jobs on your website
  • Allow candidates to register and upload their CV
  • Import the candidates directly into Recruit So Simple

Some recruitment software solutions are extremely complicated and costly, requiring web developers to spend hours getting your site working with the software. To integrate with Recruit So Simple you just need to copy and paste one line of code on to your webpage. It really is that simple. You can then customise the look and feel from within Recruit So Simple to make it fit in perfectly with your site’s design.

Many of our customers have given us great feedback about our website integration functionality. We often get told by them that they cannot believe we are offering this functionality at no extra cost, as most software providers charge large amounts for simply allowing you to display your jobs on your website and allowing candidates to register.

Visit our website to see how Recruit So Simple can help your business.
