Pros: Relatively easy to you, some very useful features such as interview scheduling, automated templates etc. which are all easy to use

Cons: Missing some key features, such as ability to search through candidates with keywords, system can be slow moving between profiles, reporting needs improvement such as the ability to export reports etc.

Overall: It has improved our resourcing procedures and streamlined some elements, including removing some of the more manual elements of the work.

Pros: I like the bidding system where recruiters bid and pitch for your business. I ended up getting bids from smaller recruitment companies who were specialised in that area and you could tell from the effort they put into their pitch that they would work hard on your open positions.

Overall: 2 new recruiters I would never have spoken to.

Pros: The usability of the system is second to none. The dashboards are informative, the navigation structure is sensible. The customisation of the hiring process makes it a breeze to qualify candidates, allow for management screening, organise interviews, etc. Essentially, the entire process from the publishing of ads to formalising recruitment can be done from this single platform. The recruitment agent marketplace is a remarkable addition to the basic functionality. We have used the latter to successfully recruit senior IT business leader profiles, while the basic functionality has been more than effective to generate candidates for less competitive areas.

Cons: I had a little difficulty understanding the scoring mechanism for key qualification/screening questions, but after a minute or two the logic was sound.

Overall: If there was ever a 5 star service, this is it. I cannot recommend the service enough. I will use nothing other than BidRecruit for structuring our recruitment process moving forward.

The staff listen to you!

Pros: Only having to post the advert on one site and knowing that it will reach a wide audience.

I like the fact that the BidRecruit listen to you and they are improving and enhancing the software all the time and adding new features.

When you have a query the response rate is very fast.

Cons: Most of the little things that annoyed me initially have now been fixed.

Overall: Less time spent on pulling applications together as they are all stored in the one place on Bidrecruit.

Pros: BidRecruit is an extremely easy platform to use but has all the functionality you could need to manage and track your applications and hiring process. The system makes it easy to interact with our candidates from day one.

Cons: There is nothing I don't like but there is always ways for improvements.

Overall: Fantastic. The customer support team are brilliant and quickly respond to any queries that arise. The system itself has helped our company track our jobs more efficiently.

Pros: I like that the software is user friendly, i also like once i post my job to bid recruit - its duplicates on all job boards applicable to me (I chose at my leisure) - Furthermore, its tell you exactly which site the applicant applied through - generating recruitment trends in your given sector.

Its interesting to see the different level roles and which site is more popular for the different roles.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the dashboard, all the stats I need at a glance, and I can clearly tell how well the roles are performing, a recent feature added which i also LOVE is the candidate questions; an applicant cant apply without answering mandatory questions (if you chose to set this feature, and btw its completely able for customization, eliminating mundane questions automatically and allowing you to completely personalise)

Cons: I would love if a sector of activity catagory was added in the company profile section - right now we are listed as engineering - Construction and Trades would be a good sector to add ;)

Overall: Its my go to place for recruitment now - and at the price how could it not be?

Pros: The platform is very intuitive and easy to use. It has allowed us to streamline our hiring process with their AI Technology removing unwanted or unsuitable candidates from the review process. We also really found the ability to batch reply to candidates that had not been successful an amazing way to save on time.

Cons: We did not realise you could turn off the email notifications for every applicant that applied. Thankfully their support team we able to advise us on how to change these settings and have since had no issues.

Overall: What an amazing platform and an amazing team. BidRecruit really does care about their customers. Anytime we ever had a question or small issue there was always someone there to take us through every step of the way. You might be paying for an amazing platform but you're also getting first class service.

From day 1 Bid have always been at the top of their game with support and updates.

Pros: You can reach many different job boards but all of the applications are centralised into one place.

Cons: It was my understanding that if I disabled the external advertising functionality on a role, I could advertise a new job externally in it's place and still work on the former job in the background. But the only way to work on something in the background is to also list it as a "live" job. Which means we reach our live jobs limit very quickly in a very busy period of recruitment for our company.
