Is free recruitment software right for you?

Whether you are a brand new recruitment agency or an existing one that is growing, you will soon need a reliable professional recruitment software system.

You may be tempted to dip your toe in the water and opt for free recruitment software but you should ask yourself whether such systems fulfil all your requirements, both now and in the future as you grow.

The features you need will include; storing candidate information, documents and contracts, compliance alerts and, ideally, built in SMS texting as well as automated electronic timesheet systems and invoicing capabilities.

Affordable, as opposed to totally free recruitment software - especially if it is cloud-based giving you ‘on the go’ access from any mobile device - is an alternative you have to consider, especially if it has the capability to continue to grow with your business to suit your needs.

When you are doing your research ask whether any free recruitment software you may be considering would offer ongoing support and training. And would free software allow you to transfer all your existing information easily? You also need to know whether you can add users without complication whenever that becomes necessary.

Will any free software you choose place the required importance on compliance? You need to be on top of all candidate compliance documentation in what is a highly regulated industry, including driving licences, DBS checks and CSCS cards.
