If you’re looking to set up a recruitment business, you will need a recruitment CRM, database, or ATS, whichever term you know it as. You’ll probably have used more than one in the past; I find a lot of recruiters have. The recruiters I speak to about their choice of recruitment database at start-up stage have usually hated most they’ve used or have one they want to use just because it’s the one they’re familiar with.
However, as the modern-day recruitment CRM has advanced so much over recent years and is continually evolving, new recruitment databases are entering the market all the time, so my advice is don’t just go with the one you know. Moving to another CRM is a nightmare so choose carefully and think ahead, your business growth will lean heavily on how much value you get from it.
Recruitment databases can get bad press, so some people will just use LinkedIn and will have never used a database because their experience with past CRMs was so awful. For this reason, I’ve written this guide to what a recruitment database is, what types are available, how much they cost, and which one might be the best.
