Recruiting staff just got easier

Gumtree has introduced ProTool for Jobs, an inventory management system aimed at helping recruiters and HR personnel to fill positions.

Gumtree Jobs sees 853,700 unique browsers and 49,000 job seekers each month with 55,000 ads listed at any one time.

Barrie Swart, Head of ProTool for Gumtree SA, says the new platform was developed to assist the increasing number of professional recruiters who are advertising on the site but managing their listings manually – often requiring a dedicated staff member to do so.

At a cost of R1,699 per month, the new platform automatically loads and manages multiple listings and acts as a feed provider to display ads on other platforms of choice. It also offers an automatic first-filter process on applicants which batches them into Yes, No or Maybe, a feature which Swart says “makes the process much faster and less admin-intensive”.

He notes that “our partners who have signed up for the service have seen significant benefits including one who generated 7,500 applications from 60 listings”.

Helderberg Personnel’s Placement Partner is a Gumtree ProTool for Jobs partner and Marketing Co-Ordinator Bronwyn Ridgway says “having ProTool integrated into Placement Partner just makes absolute sense and we are 100% happy with the results”.
