We’ve partnered with applicant tracking platform, Recruit Genie, for a seamless candidate application process

Reed.co.uk are excited to announce that we have partnered with Recruit Genie, a UK-based talent acquisition, vacancy management, and onboarding platform, to streamline our candidate experience through our ‘Direct Apply’ integration.

Integration partners are important to the business and the work that we do, to ensure that our customers and candidates have the best and most streamlined experience.


What is ‘Direct Apply’?

Direct Apply allows customers who use Recruit Genie to manage their applications in a more seamless way. Any Recruit Genie customer who has a Reed.co.uk Recruiter account can post and advertise and receive applications through their Recruit Genie account, without needing to leave the platform. 

This will help you be able to save time when posting a job and reviewing your applications – making sure that everything can be found, and managed, in one place.



What are the benefits of ‘Direct Apply’?

When a jobseeker or candidate completes their application on Reed.co.uk, our team will automatically forward the candidate’s details – along with any supporting information (such as CVs, covering letterings, and screening answers) to our customers’ Recruit Genie platform. This will allow customers to:

  • Capture every candidate
  • Track their hiring funnel 
  • Find the right candidate faster
  • Keep everything in one place

How to use this new integration as a Recruit Genie user

Direct Apply is quick and easy to set up. Just make sure you have valid job credits in your Recruiter account on Reed.co.uk, then sign in to your Recruit Genie account and post your job advert directly from there. 

Recruit Genie will then send the information to Reed.co.uk and the job advert will be published for you, with all applications automatically delivered straight to your Recruit Genie account – ready for you to review.

Richard Tomlinson, Account Director at Recruit Genie shares his thoughts on the integration:

“Recruit Genie is absolutely delighted to have completed our integration with Reed.co.uk and we are extremely excited to offer all our clients the benefits of ‘Direct Apply’. This integration will allow our clients to post directly and instantly onto Reed.co.uk and then allow applicants to complete their full application without having to be redirected from Reed.co.uk. 

“This process will maximise application numbers by making the application process seamless and minimise any risk of candidates not completing full applications. We are already seeing the benefits on application volumes with clients currently posting vacancies to Reed.co.uk and look forward to offering the solution to more accounts in the future.”
